Student & Graduate Reviews (4)

Graduation Year: 2017

My college is a small public university. The size of Longwood University has many benefits. One of them is the small class sizes which allowed for the professors to form a personal relationship with students and have more one-on-one instruction. Additionally, it gives the institution a community feel. I believe as long as students are involved in their studies and extracurricular activities they will enjoy their time at this wonderful university.

Longwood University is a small, community based school located in rural Farmville VA. Longwood offers some online classes; however, the majority of their classes take place on campus. Instructors on campus are highly qualified and invest time into their students. Instructors truly care about the success of their students. Longwood also has a wonder career advising faculty. Students can receive help with resumes, job searches, and even participate in mock interviews. Instructors are always willing to write letters of recommendation and assist in seeking a job before graduation. Coursework at Longwood strives to push students beyond the state average. Their programs are designed not only to have students learn the basics, but to learn to think outside the box and apply themselves in unexpected situations. Some of Longwood's downsides are the lack of diversity, and the poor networking opportunities. The majority of the students at Longwood are Caucasian females. Longwood is 70 percept female and 30 percept male. The majority of the student body is also Caucasian. However, Longwood is creating more opportunities to make their population more diverse. Foreign exchange programs, scholarships, and opportunities for Longwood student's to travel are becoming more available on campus each year. Longwood does not have many networking opportunities as well. Students must search to get involved with campus activities that allow them to network. However, Longwood is working on this as well by creating more social group opportunities, creating more study abroad programs, having more job fairs and seminars, and allowing for instructors to bring in professionals to the classroom. While Longwood does have some flaws the school continues to grow each year not only in size, but in opportunities as well. If you are looking for a smaller school that has the community it surrounds at heart, then Longwood is just right for you! Go Lancers!

Longwood was a great experience. The campus is fun and engaging. If you let it, the school welcomes you with open arms and really gives you a home away from home. Their education program is wonderful and gives a large amount of in school experience that the students don't always get at other schools.
