Since the fall of 2007 I have been a member of the campus radio station WMLU 91.3 fm and have served as its Sports Director since 2008. During that time the radio station has received two Virginia Association of Broadcasters awards for "Outstanding Sports Coverage" (2009, 2010) and has become one of the leading voices in covering Longwood Lancer's athletics on campus. I have also spent time using the skills I have learned in the classroom writing for The Rotunda about such events as the 2008 Presidential Election.

Longwood FTW!

As the seasons begin to change and the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel becomes more and more clear, most high school seniors are beginning to sift through their college acceptance letters. For most, it is no easy task to pick which college or university to spend the next 4 years at. For others, the choice is simple. Well, for those who are currently going through that sometimes difficult period of deciding which school is best for you, let me make the case for Longwood University.

Longwood is a university that is on the fast-track to a future of innovation, and most importantly, education. After nearly 4 years as a student, I am so pleased with the decision I made to attend this university. If I could describe Longwood in one word, that word would be “opportunity.” Longwood provides opportunities for students that no other school in the state can compare to. No matter what it is you want to do, Longwood gives you that opportunity to do it and succeed at it. Longwood succeeds when the students succeed and those who take advantage of this opportunity will be recognized.

Speaking from experience as both a high school senior making the decision to go to college and as a college student who has spent 4 years furthering my education here at Longwood, I know I made the right choice. Choosing the right college to attend after high school has a huge impact on one’s future and it’s important to make the right the decision the first time because life may not offer too many second chances.
