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

When thinking of the noun "college", parties, beer, boring professors and loads of homework may cross your mind. It may induce excitement and it may bring about fear to your thought of college. Whatever thought college may bring to you, put it aside and place your focus on your heart. When choosing a university, make sure you identify your passion and interests for that is what will aid in your degree choice thus, college choice. and ultimately success. Don't be fearful about what others may think about your passion because happiness and success is key to really experiencing the warmth in life and bringing positivity to the world.

Focus on your family because your focus defines your interests to both the people closest and furthest from you - the grades and eventual job will come soon enough. As far as the school work goes... DO NOT be afraid to explore different possibilities and solutions to problems. Understand that school is a stepping stone, not an "end all mean all" finale to life (sometimes that is hard to see, but the more it is understood the better the overall quality of school will be). Heed these words me of the past!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who enjoys a heavy work load and a small, intimate work environment.

Marine, be smart about the decision you are about to make. Being accepted to multiple 4-year universities is a great accomplishment, but take your time and decide what is right for you, not what you SHOULD do in consideration of family, income, career goals, age, and so on. Pick a school that you will be happy attending, if you want to study abroad, embrace the opportunity! If you want to move away and attend a college far from home, do it! A Business Major is a great place to start but don't limit yourself to the typical finance and management concentrations. You love to travel so focus on International Business or apply your creativity and study Marketing! Last but not least, remember, completing the first 2 years of general education courses at a community college is not an emberassment. Yes, you did graduate high school with honors and vowed to never step foot in a community college regardless of the savings. But think twice, you could use the money you save by attending a community college towards building the business of your dreams. Be a little selfish just this once and do what is right for YOU!

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

If i could go back as a senior in highschool, i would tell myself a lot of things about college life. First, it would be to be more focused and try to take more advance placement classes and study hard to pass the tsts in order to not have todeal with so many GED classes in college. Also, while being in high school, take classes at a community classes during the school year and the summer before college and have them transferred that way i save money and get through my GED's faster. This also would help me taking other fun classes and get my major courses done sooner. Another thing i would tell myself is to have been more involved at school, that would have probably helped my college applcation tto my first choice school. im still happy to attend Woodbury but it ould have been a nice feeling to be accepted to my first choice school. The last thing i would tell myself would be to not pocrazinate. These words of advice would have helped me more throughout my senior year.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

the most frustating thing about my school is the fact that there are no sports. i was a cheerleader in high school and wished to have been a part of it in college. i feel that without any sports, there is not as much school spirit there should be.

Their design catagories such as architecture, interior architecture, animation and graphic design. Also the school size and intimacy of it all.

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

Sometimes it isnt enough to give word of mouth advice and recommendations to schools because for some people a university can be great but for others it might not. I believe that is is important to do your own research based on your needs and requirements to find the best school suited for you. That may include visiting the school to get a better idea of what it might be like to be a student in that school. I know that when I first came to visit the school I was impressed on how intimate the school felt and how friendly everyone is. It almost felt like a small community of friends. The location was beautiful and im glad I chose this school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those looking to end their day once classes are done, and dont like heavy work loads. Its tough here but the education you get out of it is awesome and satisfying.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Woodbury is a small school with a ratio of student to instructors that is unmatched by lots of schools, the placement of it being in downtown San Diego is a big plus. Woodbury?s small number of students means everyone knows everyone, there is no one that I do not know either personally of just by name/face. Having a small class like this means that I get to know my professors and establish a relationship with them and maybe get help in finding a job or internship.

Parents it is a waste of money to hire someone to help your kid find a college and or file out FASFA, there are many wed sites that are for free and government ran to help. Parents if your child is able to go to college then it is ok for them to find and fall in love with a college they pick, for it is them who are going to be attending, and not you. Students fall your heart and pick a college that reflex your study habits and values. Do not let your parents pick one for you, sure they can help but ultimately it?s you who is going to attend. Break out from your shell and get out there meet new people, net working early helps a lot down the road.

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

School is the place where all issues that trouble the world and one in theri life is discussed and assessed and played. That is why there is no right or wrong. Wherever you go, life could be taken more seriously in a fashion that encloses the rest of the thinking light scopes, which eliminates the fun and experimental experience of education. However, I found myself at Woodbury University able to bring up all topics and express myself, as well as being open and yet part of the global and local concerns, that is a priceless pleasure that will keep me appreciative to this campus and its boards with what it had to offer.

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

art and art theories, more physics, california and most common and crowded cities, more about design and objects of any kinds..i.e. cars....good readings and good crits...good show...more about sports... more about time and time management...more about my weeknesses and strengths...

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

the instructors, the courses, subject, thesis undergrad projects, the events, the graduate school acceptance level to Harvard..

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

I think the students have to first love what they want to be and have passion about it. Before they pick their college or uiversity, they have to ask the students that have already done or in the school. They should not just to their websites and decide. They have to check the school's competitions that they had been. The school's environment is also very important that they need to check into.

What's unique about your campus?

The environment and the quality and technique that they are teaching.
