Longwood University Reviews
This University is my home away from home. The campus is beautiful, the classes are small, and the professors are AMAZING. Worth every penny even if the food really isn't, though it does always have staples and things you can make yourself which helps (plus coffee is coffee). My only real complaint is lack of diversity, though it is getting better and I know has part to blame with the location. There's not much in Farmville, except some really great nature spots, so most of your fun is on campus (get involved). If you're thinking about making the move to Longwood, come visit us! Meet our outgoing students and wonderful professors!
I have attended Longwood University for just one year, but I couldn’t ask for a better school to go to. I was super scared leaving home and finding my way around a new place, but the campus is not only beautiful, but it’s small and easy to find your way around it. Throughout the semester, the personal advisors we are given are absolutely amazing! The professors are super helpful when you need them to be, but can be very strict when it comes to attendance. The dorms are a decent size, and absolutely everything I brought fit perfectly into my room. The area around the school isn’t much, but there’s a local movie theater, and bowling alley if you want to go out with friends and have some fun! There’s plenty of food options around the school, but Longwood's dining hall isn’t that great. The party scene isn’t too crazy, But we party hard at Longwood! Longwood overall is just an incredible school and experience!
Longwood University is like one big, diverse family. There is a club or organization for almost anything you can imagine, so you can find your space! With small class sizes, you know everyone around you and get more out of class. Professors and faculty actually know your name and are able and willing to provide you with career and internship opportunities. It also doesn't hurt that the campus is stunningly beautiful! I'm so glad I go to Longwood University!
