    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!

    Woodbury University often fails to keep its students best interests in mind while greatly overcharging for tuition. Professors often are clueless--even moreso than their students--and many have apathy to the subjects which they teach. As for students, many are extremely lazy and rude and somehow get away passing without completing any work for the course.
    I choose to come to this school because it has a great location in Burbank in which I am nearby animation studios and other certain places where a guild called Women in Animation meets. I food is very good, I like surrounding myself in people who also striving for the same goals, to get into the art industry. I like the professors because while they teach, they are also currently working in the industry as well. The only thing that is a bit of a drawback is the housing/ dorm. They are pricey and ofter little room to work with.
