Longwood University Reviews
I love the environment! There are great professors and faculty that want to see you succeed. The campus as a whole is beautiful, even with the construction. There are always people hanging around on the lawns, studying, playing volleyball, walking their dogs. You walk outside and there is no reason to go back in. I found a home.
Longwood University, in my opinion, is the best school in the state of Virginia. The teachers are paid the least in the commonwealth, yet they work the hardest. In my major, Communications, I have so many opportunities to learn and build my resume. I can branch out on campus from athletics to academics, with equal opportunity to all. The greek life is very open, inclusive, and harmonious and has a strict no hazing rule. Longwood also requires at least one internship before you graduate. This helps students put their minds to building their resume. Longwood's biggest goal is to educate their students and equip them with the skills to thrive after college.
Longwood University is a really good school. The staff is very helpful as well as dedicated and their curriculum is set up in a manner where students are set on a pretty straight path to graduate. However, I would like to see Longwood better accommodate transfer students. It was really hard to find classes because I transferred in from a community college with so many of my prerequisites and electives complete, I found my self either having to wait until certain classes were offered or I had to take 2 pillar classes before I could really dig into my classes.
