The History of Longwood University

At Longwood, bright, hardworking students learn to lead. As a top-ranked public University in the heart of Virginia, Longwood pairs a classical liberal arts curriculum with hands-on experience in the field. Our small, close-knit community supports each student to grow, every day, toward his or her ideals.

Longwood holds deep historical roots, but over nearly two centuries our curriculum has evolved dramatically. President W. Taylor Reveley IV, who took office in 2013, continues to emphasize the liberal arts and sciences as the heart of the academic enterprise for all Longwood students — many of whom go on to major in our outstanding pre-professional programs like business and nursing. All Longwood students also experience our mission of educating citizen leaders firsthand, developing the critical thinking, leadership skills and integrity needed to graduate as lifelong learners and leaders.
