I transferred over from Cal State Fullerton. I was tired of the large public university experience , where I felt anonymous, had trouble getting the classes I needed, had very little access to teachers, and didn't get to know many of my classmates due to the large classroom size.

Woodbury gave me everything I was looking for. I felt like I was wanted from the first day I visited the school. A counselor laid out every class I needed to graduate, and I got every class I needed.

I had a lot of one on one contact with all of my teachers. They remembered my name. Class sizes are small: 12-15 students is the norm. I made relationships with many of my classmates. And there were a lot of group projects in many of my classes, which I enjoyed. Collaboration is helpful to learning.

I am very proud to be a graduate of Woodbury Umiversity.
Woodbury University is a great private university. I am majoring in Fashion Design and the professors are extremely professional and I have a great time working with them. They thoroughly explain everything and have a great attitude towards every student. They make the students feel comfortable with them asking them questions and the professors clearly answer them all. I have not felt that I am not going to be able to understand something because my professors take the time to explain everything!
As long as you are confident and have previous experience in your major, you will be satisfied with this college. You need the initial experience to keep along with the teachers. If not, you need to provide more effort towards academics. Courses are diverse and mainly stick towards digital aspects. Most professors are very friendly and help you through emails and direct questions. However, some professors may try to avoid as well. Again, it depends on how serious you take your work. You need to constantly ask teachers incase you have a question. Do not expect them to get to you immediately as well. Class styles and class sizes are moderate, you need to find a class where you can do independent study and work on your projects. Find a class that suits you. As an animation major, I prefer to have my own position to do my work and it works that way.
