My overall experience at William Woods University has been spectacular so far! It's best known for its equestrian programs, but no one bats an eye if you're not involved with horses either. It's very friendly and diverse (I feel like there is a representative of every type of person here, and we all mesh together just fine), and since William Woods is such a small college, the professors have more time to form enriching relationships with students, and no one feels swamped by an overwhelming student population. If I had to do everything all over again I would return to William Woods every time.

The selection is amazing. They always have 2 or more options for the main dish, including something for vegetarians. Delicious raviolis and Italian food. They often have a hummus bar or salmon! They have a salad and sandwich bar with fruit and 2 soups. Sometimes they will make an additional specialty salad. You can have as much ice cream as you want and sometimes there are even toppings! Dessert is in abundance, too, and with a great variety They often label if it has peanuts in it. They let you take food out at the evening meal. You can have cereal whenever you want. They have coffee, tea you can brew, fixings, chocolate milk, a soda machine, juice machine, cappuccino, and hot chocolate machine.

Theatre Department – The theatre department has given me so many opportunities and improved my acting skills, taught me how to brand myself and given me a well-rounded education. The department is small, with directors and professors who genuinely care about students achievement and progress. The Woods puts on four mainstage shows, two student-directed shows, has a show choir, an improv team, a spring showcase, senior project shows and independent study productions, so there are endless chances to find yourself onstage. Best decision I've made!
