    As an animation major, I love the area and the amount of opportunities the school is providing after graduation. The design departments aren’t as favored as the architecture or business programs. But, the campus is very safe, especially the dorms. Student life is very good for a smaller school, especially with multiple types of organizations to be a part of. The administration department needs a lot of work, considering it feels like a battle every time I go in the office about an issue or simply a question. The staff is very caring of their students besides that and I love the community feeling of on campus life. Definitely would go here again if I had the chance!

    First of all, DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU ARE A TRANSFER STUDENT. This school is based on kids who just graduated high school. The majority of the age range is 17-20 and 20 is pushing it. If you don't live on campus, you're pretty much screwed out of friends. They are super clicky here and it's like being in high school with peers talking badly about others and making snarky remarks in classes. If you don't join a frat or a sorority, don't expect to fit in. 60% of the school is in them and there's only 2.
    The professors are okay. I had a few really amazing ones and they are helpful with course work. Thats the one thing Woodbury has going to them. However, the chairs of the departments are also teachers and some are incredibly rude. I have left in tears on more than one occasion after talking to the chair of my department, he was not understanding at all and also said horrible things about my age in front of the entire class.
    I really love the school and many of the staff members there. As a freashman majoring in fashion design going off to sophmore year is really fun. Woodbury let's you explore your creativity as well as to really learn hands on work upon how to sew, what you'll be making as well as being able to develop great skills and new skills whether your a beginner, intermediate, or advanced sewer. Not only are your sewing skills developed but communication skills are grown to help you get out of your shell and stand out.
