    If you like small towns, go for it. There are a variety of activities like rock wall, touring the campus, and traditional games.

    Farmville is small. There is no changing that fact. However, Longwood makes up for its relatively isolated location with school sponsored, free, activities, parties, and concerts every single weekend. Literally. Additionally, greek life is pretty active on campus, giving both members and non-members things to do every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.

    I absolutely love Longwood and the town of Farmville. Even though its small the college and surrounding community have so much to offer. There are free events on campus every day so between those, my classes and the organizations I'm involved in, there's never a dull moment. The people in the Farmville community are very welcoming to students and the town is beautiful.

    I absolutely love Longwood. The campus life is fantastic. There are many places on campus to spend time in like the Student Union, the bowling alley, the dining hall, and various other campus locations. The dorms are great and so are the Longwood sponsored apartments. Farmville is a small town, but there is still a lot to do around here. Longwood students and staff make being here and wonderful experience and work tirelessly to provide programs and events for the students.
