From Longwood University

Students come to Longwood caring about a lot of things. What they do about it makes them a Lancer.

Lancers are engaged members of their communities from all walks of life who think bigger than themselves and want to do the hard work of shaping the world as they follow their own path to more than 100 different degree options.

The heart of a Longwood education is Civitae, our curriculum that challenges students to find interconnected ideas, think deeply about issues our country is wrestling with and develop creative solutions to problems. We’ve taken what’s typically the most boring and disconnected part of your college education and made it work to not only make actual sense (shocker!) but to give you the foundational skills that employers look for - from creative problem solving to effective communication.

You can get a degree from a lot of places. A Longwood degree means you’ve gone through the process to be a better scientist, a better entrepreneur, a better teacher, a better you.
