I am originally from Northern Virginia but when I transferred to Longwood I immediately fell in love with the small town feel, and now Longwood can’t get rid of me!

When I was getting my degree in Environmental Science, my study breaks consisted of eating guacamole and beatboxing. Not at the same time, of course.

I love that I work in event management while also recruiting for my own alma mater - plus it puts kibble on the table. Cat mom life.

I got very used to the northern Virginia traffic back when I used to drive a box truck full of produce to various farmers markets. I loved my Saturdays working the vegetable stands!

Did you know it only takes 43 muscles to smile? Just like Buddy the Elf, smiling's my favorite.

I swam competitively for most of my life - until I got too busy. There’s nothing I enjoy more than helping students succeed, but I am still looking forward to the day I retire and can be back in the water!

Jason “Ferg” Ferguson, M.S. ‘12

Dean of Admissions

fergusonjm@longwood.edu

I was born and raised in Georgia but I am a huge fan of Alabama football and Atlanta Braves baseball. I've lived in Farmville for over 30 years and am happy to call this place home. Longwood University can be described like that as well…home. I am married to the love of my life and we have a beautiful seven-year old daughter who humbles both of us daily. If you are looking for a college, there are many options. If you are looking for a home, call me.

As soon as I stepped onto Longwood’s campus during the Honors Retreat my freshman year, I knew this place was a great fit for me. I consider myself lucky to now be able to use the education and transferrable skills I developed as a student here to help the next generation of Lancers.

Assistant Director, Admissions (Engagement)

I’m a central-Virginia local, but if you meet me during football season, you might swear I’m from Dallas. Go Cowboys!

I grew up 45 minutes from the Great Pyramids of Giza and now I live an hour from the closest Egyptian restaurant. Good thing Indian food is my second favorite and Longwood has the amazing Flavors of India right next to campus!

I wish the hotels in Northern Virginia allowed dogs so my three German Shepherds could come to all the college fairs with me.
