For the 13th straight year, Longwood University is ranked among the best in the 2011 U.S. News & World Report survey. The new USN&WR "America's Best Colleges" report, released on 17 August 2010, ranks Longwood #9 in the category "Top Public Universities-Master's" in the South.  Among all Southern Universities-Master's (public and private) Longwood remains within the top tier at #27.

Additionally, Longwood University is again one of the best colleges and universities in the Southeast according to The Princeton Review. The education services company recently selected Longwood as one of 133 institutions it recommends in its "Best in the Southeast" section of its 2011 Best Colleges: Region by Region survey.  And, for the first time, Longwood University is included as one of the best colleges in the United States in the Forbes 2010 list of America's Best Colleges.  The list of more than 600 undergraduate institutions, compiled with research from the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, is based on 11 factors measuring the quality of the education each school provides, the experiences of its students, and the achievements of its graduates.
