My overall experience at William Woods University has been spectacular so far! It's best known for its equestrian programs, but no one bats an eye if you're not involved with horses either. It's very friendly and diverse (I feel like there is a representative of every type of person here, and we all mesh together just fine), and since William Woods is such a small college, the professors have more time to form enriching relationships with students, and no one feels swamped by an overwhelming student population. If I had to do everything all over again I would return to William Woods every time.
Review William Woods University
I am currently at sophomore at William Woods University. I enjoyed my freshman year and am anxious to return this fall. The LEAD program is a very good way to help students adapt to life away from home. There are always activities, sporting events and leisure opportunities on campus. The admissions team and counselors are always willing to help if/ when you have questions. The dinning hall has limited hours and athletes sometimes have a difficult time getting to Tucker after practice. The professors are effective educators and I am confident I am receiving a quality education. The overall campus is easy to get around and pleasing to walk around. I highly recommend this university to high school seniors.
I feel very safe here on campus. Stealing is almost nonexistent on campus, or at least I've never had to worry about it. There are emergency buttons stationed all around campus, information regarding campus police and safety is readily available, and the location of counseling services and the campus nurse is made known to everyone. William Woods also strongly encourages all students to take an online course about sexual assault called Not Anymore, which details what consent is, the necessity of consent, victims are not responsible for sexual assault, etc. There are even posters in the restrooms detailing statistics about rape, sexual/emotional abuse, and assault among men, women, and the LGBT community. It's well-covered topic here.
