I attended Longwood from 2003-2004 before I transferred to a school that better met my needs. I agree with most of the comments here. Most of the people at the school are female, Caucasian, education majors. I am a very open minded African American female but I still felt a little out of place.

I most definitely spent my weekends either taking long walks around the campus or going to Wal-Mart. That was about it for social life. The classes are pretty straight forward and they do lack creativity. This really isn't the school for "artsy" people. If you are different in any way you will stand out like a raisin in a bowl of oatmeal.

Even with all of that said there is nothing particularly "wrong" with Longwood. It is a respected school where you will receive a decent education. I think it just depends on what floats your boat. If you want to go to a school where you'll have no choice but to study all day for four years because there is nothing else to do, graduate and then get a job then Longwood is definitely the school for you. haha
