Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

Longwood University is a wonderful institution and provides stellar education. The smaller class sizes allow for individual one-on-one communication with professors. The atmosphere fosters learning and promotes best abilities of students.

Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm really glad that I choose to go to Longwood for my graduate degree. The program is small and you really get to know the other students since you will most likely be in multiple classes together at once. The professors are friendly and laid back which makes them easy to talk to. My adviser is amazing and I enjoy that I've had her twice in class in my first year. Since it is a small program there are not many professors which makes it difficult to offer the same classes every semester so at times I find myself panicking about whether or not to take something now or hope that it comes back around the next semester. But again, since it's small, the professors have a good handle on what courses everyone is in need of.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

Longwood has a wonderful undergraduate and graduate program for Communication Sciences and Disorders. The town of Farmville is somewhat small. I love the area, but if the city is more your preference, then it may not be the best fit. Sometimes the workload piles up a lot, but it is definitely bearable. The professors are very supportive and always willing to answer questions. They are very helpful when it comes to placements. One even recommended somewhere for me to live. I highly recommend Longwood. I cannot say enough positive things about them.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Longwood has been educating teachers for over a century. In this time, many classes of future leaders have walked through its doors. The University's name speaks for itself in the education world by keeping its students up to date in the best teaching practices and preparing them to be professionally competitive in their fields. Small class sizes allow for a personal touch from the professors and the campus style provides a close knit "family" feel as one walks down Brock Commons. This makes the University very attractive for prospective students. So much, that over the years both the undergraduate and graduate programs are consistently growing and the University is having a difficult time keeping up. It is this lack of organization, that breeds unhappiness within the Longwood community. Often students are switched from one advisor to the next, and sometimes students undergo many changes in their programs offerings without being notified. When meeting with the professors in my program, I am happy to see how understanding and realistic they are in providing support for teachers, like me, who are working full time teaching jobs while completing a program that was initially designed for full time graduate students. The only other con that I have experienced in my program is while using Canvas. Canvas is the online interface which acts as our virtual classroom. All communication and assignments are submitted through Canvas and sometimes the program is not as reliable in detecting assignments which have been previously submitted. Otherwise, I am very happy to return to my alma mater to complete my Graduate program.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I just started to pursue my MBA at longwood university which is a great program. While I am working part time all of my classes are online. It's very convenient and fits in my schedule. Plus teachers anwser any of my questions quickly through email or weekly through Web conference. I am so glad I choose this program and can't wait to graduate and see what I can do with it.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

I really like the CSDS program at Longwood. It is challenging and provides graduate students with opportunities to do hands-on learning. It is a small program on a small campus, which is beneficial because everything is done on a personal level.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The SPED program here at Longwood provides future teachers with the tools they need in order to better their future students' education. The professors are helpful and continuously lifting you up in all that you do with positives and a few "fix its" with each and every experience. Unfortunately, however, not all of the professors are as passionate about the subject as others, which makes it difficult to make you, as a student, want to succeed and do well in the class.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: strong program, the faculty work with you with placements, faculty is available, new facility to work with, the small town also makes you concentrate on the work, program is small enough to give you personal attention. Cons: surrounding area is a very small town, having a car is a necessity in this town because there is not much transportation.
