WHAT I LIKED

I like the small school environment where I can talk more one-on-one with my professors. As a chemistry major, I have more opportunities for hands-on research than with a larger institution. There is a nice variety of clubs and traditions at Longwood, and the campus is really pretty. I am part of the honors program, which I highly recommend because there are a lot of unique opportunities that can be taken with the honors college, such as some of the study away experiences, scholarships, and Wheeler Hall has a beautiful view overlooking the lawn.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are not many scholarships offered at the school for transfer students, which was a little disappointing as a transfer student. The dining hall is alright, sometimes the food can get a little repetitive, and they aren't very accomodating to those who are lactose intolerant or wish to be vegetarian/vegan.
