Quotes

Dworetzky said, "Going to a Quaker school, it taught me to be a really nice person and that's what I saw here at Longwood. A lot of really nice people."
...that Longwood is being recognized for the outstanding educational experience we provide our students," said Sallie McMullin, dean of admissions. "This recognition speaks to the quality of our students, alumni, faculty and staff. I'm not surprised by this recognition, or the others we have received, given that Longwood produces exceptional graduates who excel in graduate school, careers and as citizen leaders. We are all Lancer proud!"
"[The children] would be able to essentially leave the relationship. This is the parents' concern: 'What if my child is old enough to walk away from my home? They have this independence, so I'm taking a risk in telling them about myself,'" Blincoe said
After her speech, Wilson shared her focus for her presidential term, which ends in November. "I want to get out and see schools, make site visits. I want to identify challenges and success. I want to promote schools to get out of the bubble and expand; see what others are doing."
