I came to Longwood because I did not get into my first choice of schools. I decided to make the best of it and try to like the school. I ended up going out all of the time (because that is the ONLY thing to do here on the weekends) and I got horrible grades. Now I do not go out very often at all and I am getting great grades ( because the classes are really easy if you just do the work) and I end up going home every weekend.
I feel like if you care about your grades, don't like to go out, and are not cookie cutter, then you will not fit in or like Longwood University at all. The student body is not very friendly and they are very cliquey.
I love my professors, but I am so happy to be transferring to a different school for next semester.
Hi - it sounds like you have had a bad experience. When you were considering school choices, were you aware of any of the things that you now don't like? How would you have improved the process so that you didn't end up in this situation?
