"The essence of Longwood is being together — on our beautiful campus, in a vibrant classroom, in the residence halls, on athletic fields. The disruption we have all faced this spring has served to remind us how much that matters.

That's why Longwood, along with our neighbor Hampden-Sydney College, have been leaders in planning our return to campus in the fall. It may require a few adjustments, but Longwood's leaders are preparing for that, and are confident we can do so.

In the meantime, our admissions team is ready and eager to work with you to navigate whatever challenges you face. We're all eager to welcome you to campus to take this next big step in your lives."
