What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
Make sure that you do your homework and work as soon as you can because it can add up real quick. Get involved with different clubs and organizations or sports; you will love the school even more and you will meet lots of people. Also, look into Greek life, even though Freshman can't rush until their spring semester, go to open houses and get a feel for each sorority or fraternity. You will meet lots of people there, whether you rush or not. Also, go to class! Teachers will notice whether you are there or not and you can't pass a class if you don't go to class.
Kelly from Midlothian, VA
Get over learning for the grade. There is more to school, and especially college, than just a grade. College is about preparing yourself to be a professional. The knowledge you attain in school is worthwhile, especially in college. You will need this knowledge.... yes, strive for perfection but if you do not get there understand why and learn from it!
Christy from Chesapeake, VA
Farmville is a small town, there isn't much to do outside the college. Don't expect to never go to class and still be able to pass, attendance is a big deal at this school. It is not the most demanding school in the world, but what they do expect they are very strict about. Overall, a pretty great college with a very rich history.
Rebecca from Farmville, VA
The best advice I can give prospective students is to enjoy what Farmville has to offer and get involved in the school. Longwood has many opportunities and you need to take advantage of as many as you can.
Amanda from farmville, VA
Apply early! Go to your classes, meet your professors, join organizations, and Go Greek!
Megan from Newport News, VA
The #1 most important thing to do at Longwood is to get involved. Whether its a club sports team, the newspaper. the radio station, greek life, student government, or an honor society, there is something for everyone. Being involved in those types of groups will help introduce you to people who will be your best friends for life.
H. from Richmond, VA
Visit, visit, visit. Keep an open mind when visiting and be open to trying new things. Ask a lot of questions and don't be afraid to explore the school and the town.
lesley from richmond, VA
If possible minimize trips to dining hall, It's good at first then...not so much. Take the time to visit your professors in their office hours, it pays off when they recommend you for various positions in campus life. Attend all the social functions held by Lancer Productions, you'll get to meet a ton of cool people.
David from Leesburg, VA
Visit the school as many times as possible and try to learn everything you ca about the school so you can really picture yourself living there and this can apply to any school you're looking at.
Gregory from Lynchburg, VA
Don't underestimate a small school. I had never heard of Longwood until my senior year of high school and when I decided to apply, it was really just my fall back school. However when I had to make a decision I went with Longwood and I have never been happier! If there is a school that you are thinking about really talk to people about it. You might be surprised by what you hear.
