Longwood University Reviews
Review Longwood University
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.
This is an amazing institution that offers plenty of opportunities to grow and mature. Personally, I have achieved great success at Longwood because of the amazing staff who constantly encourages me to step outside of my comfort zone. However, Longwood does have its negatives. Our school spirit is close to nothing. Longwood is located in the small town of FarmVille which often lacks opportunities for internships or employment. Longwood is great if you make it great. Get involved or not, is your choice. The opportunities are there, just go find them. Overall, Longwood is a stellar University in the upswing.
