Hear From the Students

A few international students talk about their experience at Longwood:

Neena (India)

“When I first arrived I felt so far from home. But it wasn’t long until I realized that Longwood felt like home. The small classes, caring professors, and friendly students made it a great place to study.”

Evan (Canada)

“After growing up in Toronto, I had always heard the term ‘southern hospitality.’ After attending Longwood University, that phrase has come to have true meaning for me. Longwood was perhaps the best decision of my life. It gave me opportunities I would not have had at a larger institution.”

Malin (Sweden)

“I have made friends here that I will have forever…[Longwood] is like a big family.”
