4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful. The people there are so nice, and so welcoming. I cannot wait to be there in the fall and start a new chapter in my life!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I should have done more research, everything I don't like are things I could have found out about beforehand and made a better choice

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Couldn't have made a better choice, everything I looked for in schools was there, party and social scene isn't the greatest but it's what you could expect in a small town

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: By making the decision to attend an out-of-state college, I put myself in a position of severe vulnerability. I did not know anyone, and took a chance being so far away from my support system. I immediately found myself surrounded by community, and from the wide range of clubs and activities, found my family in the company of Belly Dance.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not really sure. I have a brother Jalen Jackson who attends LU and he is now living in an apartment. He has nothing but awesome things to say.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Longwood parties are very low-key. Safe, fun and you get to communicate with friends outside of class.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food is very reasonable! Can not complain. Lots of great choices. Student discounts are accepted at most stores and thats very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I feel very safe. I feel as though there is protection all around at all hours of the day and night.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did receive some loans, but i am still struggling with paying for tuition

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is awesome because you really come in contact with great people who are very sociable and it is also very easy to commute to classes

4 College Freshman

Administration: LU policies and procedures are fair.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was unable to receive any aid from my University - my family (single mother) are only receiving work study and State aid at this time. This still leaves a large burden on my mother to assist me with attending college as a new freshman.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Can't wait to go through rush myself!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not the greatest, but still fun! No football team

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Hampden- Sydney always has something going on right up the road!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly chains and fast food, but there are a couple of great local places to go as well!!

3 College Freshman

Administration: Pretty average! The only issue with administration that i've ever had has come from the Parking department.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Issues that are still being worked on...

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: For the most part, the food isn't bad at all! After transferring from another school with TERRIBLE food, D-hall isn't truly that bad! I wish there were more healthy options however!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in one of the off campus apartment complexes and they are incredible! So spacious and equipped with everything that I needed. Quick five minute walk to campus and a great environment to live in. I'm living on the same hall next year!

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are really only fast food options. Farmville is such a tiny town that having lots of sit down or nicer restaurants would be difficult to keep in business especially when students aren't there like in the summer or on winter break.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I have never had an issue with strictness. They take things seriously when it is necessary but I have never seen them be overly strict or unnecessarily punishing.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Getting it set up was difficult as well as getting questions answered.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are few healthy options and not much variety. If you live in campus housing, you MUST have a meal plan. This is very inconvenient considering I live off campus. The food in the dining hall isn't very good either.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have had a great experience living in campus housing. I live in a campus managed apartment now which includes an outdoor pool and gym. The RAs plan many social events to get the residents together. The only downside is the distance from campus, but there is a bus service provided to transport to and from campus if you don't have a car.
