William Woods University is a University that strives on student involvement as well as the community that surrounds it. We have many activities and clubs that you can be involved in. I myself am in two clubs currently. William Woods offers many opportunities for local to international. William Woods will always hold a special place in my heart.
HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. TEACHERS NEVER GRADE ANYTHING OR TALK TO YOU. NO FEEDBACK. NO GUIDANCE. NO NOTHING. THIS ONLINE PROGRAM IS A COMPLETE JOKE. THE TEACHERS WHO DO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU ARE RUDE AND NOT HELPFUL. THANKS FOR GIVING ME AN A AND TEACHING ME NOTHING! YOU SUCK!! BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY EVER. IF I WASN'T SO FAR ALONG IN THE PROGRAM, I WOULD DEFINITELY GO ELSEWHERE. HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE!!!
William Woods University is a rounded educational experience. The class size is small, so there is always opportunity to ask questions in class. The professors are knowledgeable, and are always reachable and available for students to come in and ask questions. They don't mind hanging around and chatting with students, either. There are so many opportunities to get involved, and participate in extra curricular activities, whether it be through going to sports games, joining Greek life, volunteering around campus with leadership positions, attending horse shows, and the many LEAD events. Which brings up the fact that a main goal of the University is for students to be aware, and learn about things outside of their course schedules. There is a scholarship available for every student where if they attend a certain number of these informational and interactive events, they receive a scholarship. It shows how much the university values rounded, and involved individuals. The instructors always strive to be up to date in their field, and prepare their students for their next steps in life. I, and other students feel that they can talk to staff and professors at any time. The student body is extremely welcoming, feels like a family, and the campus is beautiful. I have thoroughly enjoyed and loved my experience at William Woods so far as a sophomore majoring in biology/pre-vet, with minors in Spanish, Equestrian Science, and music.
I am currently finishing up my first semester as an equine student and am desperately trying to get out. I initially started with my major as equine science with a goal to become a trainer. I immediately felt as if this school would never be able to get me to the riding level to become a trainer and quickly switched my degree to management, which basically consists of the same classes anyways. When I arrived, the horses has done nothing all summer. I'd say they sat out on pasture but that would be a lie- for 157 horses, there are only a couple small dry lots. Their stalls look like 10x10s, not even 12x12s, and they only get an hour of turnout a day, if even. I was told by one of the older girls that about 10 of 30 in hunter jumper are almost always lame. I have been instructed to ride lame horses. I have seen riders been told to ride horses when they're missing shoes. The barns are filled with dust. The stalls stink of ammonia from the pee not being removed. The farrier isn't out enough and many have their hooves growing upwards. The tack is commonly cleaned with dirty water and for having such a dusty barn there are no saddle covers. The hunter jumper coach doesn't instruct the class and tell us how to improve. If we get anything, it's what we're doing wrong, not how to fix it. The barns are mouse infested. I've never seen so many dead mice in water buckets. In my time here, I've gone over maybe five jumps. I was yelled at when cold hosing a horses legs since they'd had a summer off and we had done a decent ride. Now, you may have toured the school. I thought it looked great when I did. But they put on a fantastic show that disappears the second you put in your tuition deposit. Also, the dining hall is god awful. They also put on a good front for visitors, those are the times we all go. Any day you can leave without feeling nauseous is a major win.

The worst thing about this school has nothing to do with academics, it is simply the food and location. We are required to live on campus, and the food they provide at the one dining hall is most often unbearable, or at the least unappetizing. The other thing I do not care for is the location. I wish there was more room for the horses to have larger turnout lots with grass. Other than those things, the school is great.
There arent any elevators, which isnt any fun when moving in or carrying in bags from Wal-Mart.
William Woods is a beautiful campus full of opportunity for those who truly seek it; it offers a place to learn about things that are not widely offered in other colleges in an atmosphere that encourages intellectual development, and the pursuit of dreams as well as offering a realistic and practical view of breaking into today's economy and job market; all of which comes with the price of determination and hard work, a student must want it at William Woods in order to recieve it.
All of the people and the beautiful campus
You have to be the right kind of person to really love WWU. My four years at William Woods were the best four years of my life. I thrived in the equestrian program, met the closest fiends I will ever have and grew as an individual. It is a small school in a small town, however, I came from a vey large high school and could appreciate the individual attention I was given.
William Woods University is known across the country for it's diverse and hands on equestrian program. What makes WWU different is that they don't only offer one, but four different Equestrian majors and house 150 horses right on campus. They also have a program called LEAD which stands for Leading, Educating, Achieving, and Developing. Through this program, each and every student is offered a $5,000 scholarship simply for participating in campus events such as sports games, theatre productions, movie nights, and other presentations. William Woods University is a small, unique, personal, and friendly school.
There are a lot of alcoholic parties.
I brag about being able to study what I love most in an environment that allows me to learn hands on. There are not many campuses that have Equestrian Science programs, and of those few programs not many offer a horse facility on campus. Everything I learn in the classroom I can take a 2 minute walk and apply it in the barn. This school is training me to be a professional everyday, and it allows me to gain as much or as little experience as I choose, and I choose to gain as much as possible.
My classmates are a group of driven individuals who have thier goals in mind, as well as dreams that would make even the most hopeless smile and think "I could do that ,too."
anyone! the school is a place for everyone!
If you are looking for large and urban, this is not the school for you!
