Longwood University Reviews
Longwood is a great school that offers much to its students. A relatively small school, not many people know about it which makes it a more unique school that can really engage its students to learn. In the heart of Farmville, it's a nice scenic location with much to do outside of studying on campus, such as many state parks. The family and tradition one finds at Longwood is unmatched at other colleges. I didn't have any outstanding reason for picking Longwood, but I'm glad I did and I wouldn't pick any other college, go Lancers!
I love it there! Professors really get to know you and want to see you succeed not just in their class but in all your classes. Also every class is taught towards your major no matter if it is education or nursing professors try to relate what they are teaching to things you might encounter with your major. The school is in a small town there's not much to do around town, but there are so many opportunities to get involved on campus. They encourage everyone to get involved in something to help make your experience there better. We have a lot of corny traditions but they are fun to participate in. They make you feel like a kid again. The student body is small with 4,580 stuendts but everybody there is very friendly, "southern hospitality". Even all the workers who work at the campus like the maintenance, cafeteria staff, and gardeners. It is an amazing place to go to school.
Strong professors, but not strong students. Virtually no class discussion because no one does the assigned readings/really cares about their classes. Even the honors college is just full of people who think their geniuses but are not much smarter than the rest of school. Athletic teams, with the exception of softball, are not good and there is no support for them. There is nothing to do in Farmville, and campus is dead after 6 pm because almost everyone lives in off campus apartments. The parties are not good, and there are no nearby bars. Also, the dining hall is disgusting.
