    My first year at Woodbury University went very well!

    Woodbury University has a very friendly and safe community. Everyone that attends the school is mindful and unique. No matter what, there is always a helping hand.

    Courses were excellent as well. Professors were always fast to help all individuals. Additionally, they challenged students in different ways, so we could advance our skills and projects.

    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!
    Online classes were given during quarantine and communication was easy with all professors, the classes were comfortable to continue and we were still able to complete everything that was planned for regular in person classes. Presentations and maybe a couple website crashes were common but whatever was missed could definitely be reached on the Woodbury website and it was more easier to get things done in advanced, they even provided school software and programs to continue work from home. Regular online classes ran the same and adapted to FaceTimes or Skype all’s for questions.
