A look inside the dating scene at Longwood University

So what is the dating and hook up culture at Longwood really like? How and where do people meet each other? And where are some good places for dates? Keep reading for the inside scoop to all of these burning questions!

With the population being mainly women, Longwood University might seem hopeless for college students looking to find their significant other. But despite the odds, Longwood offers many ways for people to meet others and date. By putting yourself out there and exploring the many clubs, organizations and different personalities at Longwood, there is someone for everybody.

For outgoing people, dating and meeting other people for hook ups usually starts in the social scene. The social scene at Longwood includes parties, clubs, organizations and late night events.  There is always the opportunity to go over to Hampden-Sydney College (H-SC), an all-male school just fifteen minutes down the road, to meet guys too.  

Another way most relationships can start is within residential communities.  Residences that live on the same hall or in the same building can find connections close to their home away from home, and eventually start to date.  Dating at Longwood also starts with putting yourself out there and talking to people at the dining hall, in the gym, in the library, at sporting events, and in your classes.
