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 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.
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!
