Academics are very vital in a college career. Although your grades don’t define who you are, you want to strive to get the best grades you can. This is especially important when you want to school beyond a Bachelors Degree. At Longwood I enjoy having small classes. Professors make time to help you because they want to see you succeed. In the Fall 2018 semester, the Women’s Cross Country team had a program record high and the highest GPA for the women’s teams at Longwood.
