what Our Alumni Say

“I chose Longwood for my M.S. because I felt that both the professors and my peers were invested in my success. I was attracted to Longwood’s accredited Counselor Education program, with opportunities for on-campus assistantships that paid for classes. This combined with fast track, normal, or part-time options for completing the program made it both accessible and impressive. I was able to form close relationships with my professors, and with my current classmates who will be my future colleagues. This program prepared me for a bright future as a counselor.”

Abigail Rogers M.S.’24

“I've always felt naturally driven to make people happy, it's something that brings me joy and gives me a sense of purpose. Immersing myself in a program that has an ultimate goal to help others develop in a way that allows them to live their lives more fully and authentically is everything I could've asked for.”

Kyle Wilkinson M.S.’22

“I have always had a passion for helping others and the counseling profession seemed like the perfect fit for me! Longwood's counseling graduate program offered small class sizes and the professors were all very personable. I completed my undergraduate degree at Longwood and was lucky enough to stay for another two years to complete my master's.”

Madison Lockamy M.S.’23

“Longwood gave me a sense of community and belonging, and an ability to grow my self-identity and professional career. I chose Longwood as a graduate program because I enjoy the small class environment that allows students and professors to connect on interpersonal and professional levels. I chose Longwood's Counselor Education Program as I want to support and advocate for African American men and women and other men and women of color who look like me.”

Morgan Thomas M.S.’23

“Longwood is like a second home to me. I completed my undergrad here and knew straight away that I wanted to explore the possibility of completing my master’s here as well. I love the small community 'family feeling' Longwood has. From a learning standpoint, I enjoy the smaller class settings and that the program is CACREP accredited, something very important in the field I am going into.”
