Road Trip to the Real World


What are Road Trips?

Road Trips to the Real World are daylong trips that give students an opportunity to visit companies/organizations where they are able to learn about a particular industry as well as potential internships and career paths within that organization.

Previous Road Trips have visited: Maymont Foundation, Children's Museum of Richmond, SportsBackers, Greater Richmond YMCA, Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, Walmart Distribution Center, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and many others.

If you have questions about a trip, please contact the Academic & Career Advising Center at 434-395-2063 or career@longwood.edu.


Quotes from previous Road Trippers:

  • I liked that I was able to meet some people in the health profession and gather some information about health related jobs and opportunities. This trip helped me narrow down my interests and gave me an idea of what it is like to work at these types of health facilities.
  • The openness and excitement that each employer showed on this trip was exciting in itself. I enjoyed being able to sit down with people who work in the non-profit sector and experience, on some level, what their job consists of.
  • I enjoyed being able to physically visit both of the theatres and seeing where people work. I think atmosphere is very important and it helped me realize what kind of atmosphere I would rather work in.
