I just graduated this past May, and overall,BrightPsychology
I just graduated this past May, and overall, I loved it. It has a great sense of community, and as soon as you get plugged in you find great friends, especially within your major. The professors in the psychology department are great, with a few exceptions.

The worst part about this university is the location. We just got a good quality coffee shop that doesn't close at 5 o clock. Off-campus activities are almost non-existent, unless you want to go to the same bar and bowling alley every weekend.

The university is 70% Greek-life. So, if you're into that, you're in luck. If not, we have a few other organizations. But almost everyone you run into is in a sorority or fraternity.

Some, not all individuals, still have a small town mind-set, which is why I rated that the students are closed-minded. Diversity is not one of its strong points, but people are overall friendly, in my personal experience.

Horrible experience.Not so brightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Horrible experience. Had no support from my own advisers. My Professors were conceded and there was no tutoring or any sort of assistance in my major.

I am a graduating senior, and I haveBrightSociology
I am a graduating senior, and I have honestly loved my four years at Longwood. Campus is absolutely beautiful! The surrounding town of Farmville is a cute little southern town, however there isn't a whole lot to do. Some of the shops and diners are neat, there is a bowling alley and movie theater and High bridge trail nearby. Overall, the student body is friendly and pretty approachable. The professors in my department are wonderful! They truly know their stuff and actually give a damn about their students. They are always willing to help you. Greek life is huge here, some of the Greeks can be a little stuck up and cliquey though, but there are many who are friendly as well. Besides greek life, there are a variety of clubs and organizations to choose from. I'll be honest, Dhall seems really good at first, but after a while it gets old. Our athletics are ok for a small division 1 school, the women's softball team kicks ass! If you are looking for a small school with a college town atmosphere, then definitely come visit Longwood. I have made friendships that will last a lifetime here at Longwood.
