College Sophomore

Transportation: I haven't really had to use any.

College Sophomore

Health & Safety: For the most part its safe but there have been a few occasions of people ( non-students) and unfriendly looking strangers being on campus and once in a while they'll have a potential weapon or dog.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in on of sorority houses. I like the atmosphere and having people i get along with around me. I also enjoy how close my classes are to the house.

1 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The local area around campus is not the best. Its actually kind of scary. I've never met any mean locals but i haven't many of them in the first place. There is not much to do in this area and if you would like to go shopping at a mall or go to an attraction you have to go to columbia.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The teams are good performance wise and the facilities are pretty nice. School spirit and fan support however are lacking greatly.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing isn't bad, but isn't great either. Some updating needs to be done to some of the older residence halls. All the halls could use a little bit of a face-lift.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is okay. But the meal plan is over priced. Sometimes the food is so bad I can't stomach to eat it and have to go shopping for groceries or go out to eat. It makes me waste my money on the meal plan I feel.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: We have a fairly diverse student body, with a lot of foreign students that come to this school

2 College Freshman

Computers: The computer could use some software updating. The Wi-Fi on campus is also horrible.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't too many options, but we can make it work with what's available. Again there are larger cities close enough that we can go to and get more of a variety.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love being a part of Greek life on campus. It helps open up so many different opportunities not only on campus, but in the real world too.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Overall, the equestrian department is what sets this school apart from the rest. It's truly unique and rare to find a department like it at any college or university.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love the programs that I am involved in and think that they really help prepare students for their future careers.

College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had an internship, although I plan to have one at some point.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There really aren't very many options for night life around town.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There are many rules when you live in campus housing, but I feel that they aren't very strictly enforced. It seems that not very many people get consequences for anything around campus, unless it's a parking ticket.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics isn't something that is overly huge on this campus. unless you personally are involved in a sport on campus, there isn't much influence to really care about them. The sporting events have a decent fan turnout, but I feel that overall school spirit lacks when it comes to our sports.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics at this school are great. They are challenging, but not overbearing. Like at every school, there are some good professors, and some not so good ones. Overall though I have not had too many issues with professors or the work load given to me.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is all of the basic things that you could want in a town available. We have grocery stores, shops, a bowling alley and a movie theater. Outside of that though there really isn't all that much to do around town. The town itself isn't bad. There is larger cities that are close enough that we can go to as well, which helps.

Greek Life: GO GREEK. You'll have a hard time standing out on campus if you're not Greek, to be honest. Non-Greeks range from being close friends with Greeks to despising everything about Greek life. But the fact of the matter is, Greeks have better grades, more alumni support, do a ton of community service/raise a ton of money for various charities, and have way more social events. This is all coming from someone who spent time as an independent student and as member of a Greek organization.

5 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: There are only a handful of bars in town, but Fulton students certainly know how to rage. The bars are 18+ and if one isn't for some reason, no one goes there, so underage students can go out as well. Greek students definitely party more than independent students, however the athletes certainly hold their own on their off seasons.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Good ol' Fulton offers up an interesting place to attend school. It's ridiculous and wonderful at the same time. There are always plenty of "only in Fulton" moments that make you laugh and you will miss once you've graduated. Columbia is 20 minutes away and is great--everything you'd need is there and gives you a chance to get away from small town life. Mizzou is in Columbia, and many people have plenty of friends at Mizzou. Westminster is about a half a second down the road from Woods and while our educations are separate, our social lives would have one believe William Woods & Westminster are the same school. The Greek chapters participate in each others' events at both schools, and everyone parties together.

5 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: If you want to go to William Woods, the financial aid office will do everything in its power to make sure it happens.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe, I've never felt uneasy walking around--no matter what time it is. People are generally honest and upstanding. There has been a few instances of theft, but none of them severe or regular.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Woods is an NAIA school, so the school isn't all about sports like a D1 school would be, but people are very supportive of the athletes. The athletic teams are very strong and the school recruits from all over the world to find talented athletes. The athletes are student leaders on campus and work hard to excel in their disciplines.
