Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Woodbury University is best known for Architecture. There is also another campus located in San Diego dedicated to just architecture. Many of my friends that are in architecture say that it is really tough, but that is what they enjoy about their major.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

What I have gotten out of my college experience is unexplainable. Not only has Woodbury University shown me the value in time management, networking, and managing money, but so much more. Education is really important for me, so attending a four-year university as a freshman, it feels that I am one step closer to reaching my Masters in Business Management. I have gained so many friends that have been nothing but supportive and friendly. College has definitely opened my eyes to be more open minded and studious. Joining clubs on campus was another way to enjoy my experience as a freshman even more. I'm currently in a sorority. The minute I joined, it changed my life. I have never been so social and outgoing like I am now. I've always been the very shy type of person, but I'm not anymore and it was all because of my experience in college and in the sorority. It is definitely a chapter in my life that I will never forget.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone can attend this school. Woodbury is very understanding when it comes to financial difficulties, academic problems, or any problem in general. Woodbury University is very respected by the students, faculty, and staff. I have never seen such a bond that the professors have with the students. Woodbury is a great example of how a community should be. I have met amazing people that I respect so much, and everyone gets along with eachother so well. There is just no other way to describe Woodbury University than wonderful.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My college experience at Woodbury has been valuable. I don't know if it is because of my major (architecture), or because the school population is very small, but in just one semester, I feel I have a second family. All of the architecture students trully do work together to support one another. I have spent nights at school working on final projects, and my fellow classmates have been more than happy to help me if I am having trouble; even if it is 4 in the morning. It is amazing to see that although we are all in a hurry to finish projects and get our work done, we never say no to help another who is having trouble. I believe that is what separates Woodbury University from other Universities.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known the rigor required by the architecture professors. I was not prepared for such an intense work load, and it would have been nice to know before hand, so I would have expected it.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is the layout. The parking is at the opposite end of the architecture school, which is where most of my classes are located. The parking near the architecture buildings is very small, which makes no sense because the majority of the students that are always on campus, are the architecture students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Coming to the US is the best thing that has happened to me in my adult life. Even though I love my country –Bulgaria, I am proud and honored to be an American citizen and live the American dream. I was born and raised in Rouse, Bulgaria during communist times. I graduated from School of European languages in my home town. I graduated with French and regardless my great grades, I was forced to work as a waitress for a few years, because the employment opportunities for young people were very limited in Bulgaria at that time and the pay was less than adequate. I’ve always wanted to continue my education and have a career, but this dream of mine only became an achievable goal for me when I met my husband and moved to the US in 2002. I recently graduated from the Radiography program in FTCC and have a 3.8 GPA. I’m always striving for excellence and I’m determined to graduate from college, make a better life for me and my family and be a respected member of the society. I would be grateful and honored if I’m been considered for this scholarship.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I loved college when I attended after Hight School. I have not attended since 1980. I'm a little nervous about going back, but it's necessary for my profession. I have grown children who have also attended college and they are quite proud of me going back. I have co-signed for both of my childrens student loans, this is going to make it difficult for loans for me. My husband and I own a small business as well as I work full time in a hospital setting. I learned many social things as well when I lived on campus. I am also a grandmother of 3 with another due in December and my grandchildren are also quite supportive of me going back to school. I have become quite a role model for my family. It's quite exhilerating!!! Thank you for your consideration.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

What I have gotten out of my college experience and why it is so valuable to me—is simple, "I’m a first generation college student." Although my mother and father held steady jobs when I was young, it was not enough to keep us out of the lowest income bracket. That is why going back to college means so much to me. Going back to college means much more than getting good grades, it’s my way of giving back to the whole community of people who have helped me on the road to acquiring knowledge, wisdom, and above all understanding. What I have gotten out of my college experience has helped me reach new heights that I was not aware of before attending college. My siblings and relatives are much more proud of me than I ever imagined. I love seeing my family’s pride when I mention my continuing my graduate studies; it is my passion to strive and achieve success, all these things connected together makes earning a graduate degree highly valuable to me.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag to my friends about the college rank and job placement assistance upon graduation.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

So far my college experience has really helped me transition back into American life. I spent the year after high school abroad in Germany doong school, work and an internship. So being able to come back and be with people in my age group with the same interests has been invaluable. I also love how it really is so much different from high school, and how the level of learning is more advanced. I love learning, and will hopefully continue for the rest of my life. I also find the connections i have made here invaluable. We have such a broad student base, with representatives from dozens of states and even more countries, which makes this a wonderful place to be. I have also found that living on my own how much i need to rely on myself and only myself. I have to cook and clean and work for my rent just so i can contine going to school. And before this i had never really needed to do all these things, and now im smack dab right in the middle of life. In the last month i have already felt myself become more responsible, and self sustaining.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

During the time I have attended college thus far, I have learned that dedication determination, desire are the keys to success, no matter what challenges you are presented with. Throughout my years in school, I have experienced many challenges and tribulations, both personal and environmental; however, I have ascertained that through perseverance and hard work anything is achievable. Despite the fact that that I have had to endure numerous conflicts to continue attending college, I feel that because of this I have grown morally, ethically as well as personally. When I feel that I have reached my limits and begin to become overwhelmed with situations I am confronted with, I remember the words of Vince Lombardi, “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will”.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I have learned a lot, not just academically but also socially. I have learned about different aspecs that have to do with the "real" world that will benefit me in the future. Overall, I think that this college is giving me the knowledge academically and for my personal attitude to become someone very succesful in the future.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The first day of college I was nervous just like every other student. The structure of Woodbury University is constructed in a way to help students help eachother. In the four years that I have attended here the students have grown into a small family because we have spent so much time together. The universities group projects in studio classes as well as lecture classes allowed students to become closer together which has made all the hard work feel so much easier. The studio aspect of Woodbury University has helped me grow many memories of professors as well as students. The studio classes is what makes Woodbury and other similar institutions so valuable to attend and it is also a great way to network for future references. The proffesors are also so involved with the students that they take time out of their own schedule to help students become more succsessful in their passion. All these opportunities at Woodbury has made my college experience worthwhile and meaningful as well as influencal.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That the tutition would go up thousands of dollars for the time i was there. Woodbury is a good school but it is too expensive for middle class people.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I don't believe that the amount we pay for tuition fulfills the amount of equipment is available to us. I also believe that we need more durable computer equipment and I think that the school overcharges students on the amount we spend on plotting. The professors request many plots at every class meeting and the students spend too much money on plotting.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My school is in another state from my hometown, where I have grown all my life. I remember as a high school senior, wondering about college life in another state and how hard it would be to get used to a whole new lifestyle. The number one thing I would tell my past self, is to not be so afraid. Woodbury University is a small college with very nice people who help the students in any way possible, making the transition easier. Not only the staff, but fellow students are very welcoming and nice to you. Even though there are many students who come from other countries as well, they speak to you wanting to know your culture and will help you understand their own. Getting into a college in another state is hard, but Woodbury University makes it even easier to make the transition and get used to your college life for the rest of the time that you are at the college.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known that the school has many places where the students can go to either log into a computer or anything else to help with their school work.
