Groups

College For A Weekend (CFAW) is a great opportunity for church youth groups, school groups and other types of groups to experience Liberty University. Bringing a group is easy and has its perks. 

While at CFAW, you are welcome to participate in any of the activities your students enjoy.  From the Thursday evening Welcome Rally to Friday classes and Convocation, we hope you will take the time to experience all Liberty has to offer.

In addition, Youth Leaders and Group Leaders registering and making payment for 10 or more eligible students can receive a free hotel room and meals for the weekend!  At least 10 students must be registered and paid 24 calendar days prior to your chosen CFAW date.  The free hotel/meals promo deadline is:

  • February CFAW: January 18, 2016
  • March/April CFAW: March 7, 2016

Group Leaders who do not meet the eligibility requirements during Check-In will need to secure and pay for their own accommodations.  For area hotel listings, please visit our local accommodation page.

 

REGISTER A GROUP

All groups must be pre-registered.  However, the same costs and eligibility guidelines established for individual registrants apply to students in groups. More information can be found on our CFAW homepage.*

*The Half-Priced Friend Promotion is no longer available starting August 4, 2015.
