Most Helpful Review for Longwood University
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Kelly from Midlothian, VA
  • 10 out of 10 people found this review helpful

I just finished my first semester and I learned a lot. At first it was a little over-whelming, but after a couple of weeks the work load got easier. The teachers expect a lot but they are there to help you during their office hours if you need help. The information learned will deffinently come in handy with my major (Liberal Studies:Elementary & Middle Education). Sometimes the work can seem a little ridiculous, but the teachers just want you to be educated, especially with your intended major.

    I have been at LU for a year now, and what I originally thought of the school is still part of my opinion, but it is not as "open-minded" as I originally thought. There is underlying prejudices I've seen, amongst both students and faculty, however the school is still mostly a friendly atmosphere with kind people, but the school is in a kind of bubble from the outside world. I continue to love Longwood but I'm hoping to understand more of what the school's values are, both the institution's and the students'; I believe Longwood can continue to grow though.

    Longwood is a pretty school from the outside but while attending Longwood for a year i found that the school was not for me. You can see the division between the different races. I don’t recommend it if your looking for a diverse college.

    i really love going to longwood because i have made many friends and the professors are amazing and really helpful. the campus is small enough that it is easy to maneuver and you can see you friends a lot, but big enough that you don't feel closed in and cut off. the surrounding area of farmville is also really nice and has things to do.

    When I was touring colleges I was looking for an environment that felt like home while still giving me the feeling of being independent and responsible. Longwood University has met my expectations, providing me with a since of community.

    Longwood is a small college in a small town. As an only child, I found Longwood to be very nice in terms of its size. While it may be small, there is no shortage of things to do.

    Longwood is a great school for its small, cozy campus. It is easy to get from class to class, even when you don't have a lot of time. Events going on on campus are enough to keep you busy if you want, but relaxed if you don't want anything crazy.
