William Woods University Reviews
Review William Woods University
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.
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.
The school is small and humble. To some, it is extremely helpful with copious amount of opportunities around every corner. The instructors become well connected to their students due to the minuscule class sizes. However, their is a downfall to the program. Even though the school has a 76.3% acceptance rate and an overall okay track record, masses amount of people transfer or drop out because of how bias and outdated the school is; little to no money is put into the crumbling buildings, the food offered by the program is inedible with chronic cases of food poisoning, teachers that need to retire or just leave are begged to stay because their teacher's pay is below standard, and that's just to name a few issues.
