Hello world!

Teenage alcohol abuse is on the rise and many people don’t seem to realize how bad it’s getting. I’ve seen kids in elementary school shotgunning beers. Kids, I know in middle school brag about how much they drink. I know many high schoolers freshmen to seniors who are becoming or have become alcoholics. My goal for this website is not to eliminate high schoolers having fun because it is beneficial to learn to drink when you’re a teenager however I want to bring awareness to kids about the dangers of alcohol so that they don’t develop problems or help parents understand the issue so they can try to intervene before their child develops a problem.

High Five! Longwood moves into top 5 of U.S. News’ regional public universities in the South

Here’s some happy news!

For the first time, Longwood is a top-five regional public university in the South, according to the annual U.S. News & World Report rankings released on Sept. 12.

Over the last decade, Longwood has charted a steady climb up the annual rankings, this year marking its first-ever appearance as the No. 5 public university in the South regional category and the seventh straight year in the top 10 in the annual U.S. News & World Report rankings.

The rankings rise coincides with a continued investment in small classes taught by full-time professors, a course of action few public universities have taken. More than two-thirds of Longwood classes have 20 or fewer students, the highest percentage of any Virginia public college or university.

Longwood’s latest U.S. News ranking continues the steady upward trajectory that spans the last decade. Since 2014, the university has climbed to No. 5 from No. 14 among public institutions in the South regional category. Among public and private regional universities, Longwood has climbed to No. 16 from No. 31 in that same time period.

The university has also maintained its rising trajectory in the Best Value in the South list, up more than 10 spots from two years ago to No. 35 overall.

You can read the full story, which includes Longwood’s position in some other notable rankings, here: http://www.longwood.edu/news/2022/rankings/

Feel free to deploy any of these “bragging points” when you’re talking with friends and family about universities your children are attending.

Having issues with Emergency Alerts?

We’ve heard from a few parents that they have signed up to receive Longwood emergency alerts but have not seen any so far. We’ve checked, and in almost all cases, there’s some missing information on the account —for example, a phone number or an email.

If you’re experiencing this issue, please check to make sure your account lists your email and cell number. Here’s how to do that:

  • Log into https://longwood.omnilert.net using the username and password you have already created
  • Make sure your cell phone number and carrier information is correct in the “SMS Numbers” box. You can add multiple cell numbers if you’d like.
  • Make sure your email information is correct in the “Email Addresses” box. You can add multiple emails if you’d like.
  • If you need to add a new SMS number or email address, make sure to click the “Add New” button or your information will not save.

 If you continue to experience issues, please email questions@longwood.edu, and we’ll help resolve them.

Family Weekend Music Showcase

I hope we’ll see you this weekend for Family Weekend and the Heart of Virginia Festival. If you’re looking for a place to get out of the heat, drop by Jarman Auditorium at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, for a showcase of Longwood student musicians (and a sprinkling of faculty and staff, including me!).

The Chamber Orchestra kicks off the program, which will also include performances by the Camerata Singers, the Wind Symphony and several other musical groups and soloists. The program should conclude about 2:15.
