Look, analyzing Longwood U. is very simple.

It was founded as a niche school for young women to become school teachers- in a completely different historical time period.

Longwood U. has never really evolved into anything more, and remains one of the least reputable schools in the State. It's in a hicktown (Farmville was one of the last towns in THE U.S. to end segregation ha!) Longwood is nothing to be proud of and it will always be in the same league as Radford University, Randolph-Macon College and other small, lowly and relatively irrelevant schools. NO ONE outside the state has ever heard of it.

Look, in this day and age, going to college is expected. That's why Longwood is still around, someone has to get the students nobody wants…

It may seem harsh - but thats the way it is.

responseCollege is what you make of it! I went to Longwood, graduated summa cum laude, and now I'm a full professor of chemistry at UCSB. Some would call it a dream job. A college education is not an entitlement, and if you treat it that way you will never amount to much.
Hmmm the * education students ranked number one by virginia superintendents, * 80% of the students in education are still teaching in their field after 10 years, while the avg teaching tenure for other programs is 4 years. * I'm pretty sure you also need to visit the Robert Russa Moton Museum before you misrepresent history again.
