Student Blog The blog of William Woods University Undergraduate Students


William Woods was the right choice for me!


This is Lisa, with the second part of my "origin story."  So, I began to research schools that would work best for me.

Small Size - I was looking for a small university.  I wanted a small student-teacher ratio.  With smaller classes, it would be easy to build relationships with my professors.  I already knew what it was like to be just a face among a sea of other faces, since I had already graduated from a large public state university.

William Woods University welcomes me with my name Lisa Laughlin in lights!

My name in lights!

At William Woods, each student has every opportunity to acquaint themselves with the faculty.  Every professor makes him- or herself available to students.  Every student has the option of reaching out and establishing a personal rapport with every instructor. This enhances the learning experience tremendously.  It is really valuable not competing with dozens of other students who also want individual time with an instructor.


The Right Offerings for Me - I was pursuing my dream of attending art school, but I also needed to temper that dream with the reality of competing in a Web 3.o world.  William Woods offers a BFA in both Graphic Design and in Studio Art, AND has quality Business and Management Information Systems (MIS) offerings. I could immerse myself in creative processes in the Kemper Art Center's studio art spaces. I could learn new skills in Kemper's Mac Lab with its state-of-the-art iMacs running Adobe Creative Suite software, like Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.  And, I could learn the latest in web development, marketing, public relations, and entrepreneurship.

NASCAR auto racingCommute - The quality of my commuting time was also important to me.  I wasn't terribly interested in competing in the Daytona 500 every morning and afternoon. The commute on US63 between Jefferson City and Columbia reminds me of NASCAR restrictor plate racing.

Adding Central Missouri weather and transportation projects adds a unique "road course" flavor to the race. In contrast, the Fulton-Jeff City commute is a relaxing transition between my "day job" of being a student, and my other life in JC.

When the time came to select the school for me, the choice was obvious!

  3. Every scholar has the choice of accomplishing out and establishing a personal rapport with every instructor. I already knew what it became want to be just a face amongst a sea of different faces considering I had already graduated from a massive public kingdom university. It is in reality valuable now not competing with dozens of other students who also need person time with an instructor.

  4. William Woods University, WWU is a famous American co-educational, private university located in Fulton, Missouri. It has 3,800 pupils. The university grants undergraduate and graduate degrees in many fields in campus and online. It was established in 1870. Everyone has his/her own priority and capacity to learn according to their aptitudes. My brother had a lot of interest in taking a BFA in both Graphic Design and in Studio Art so he took admission there and he is about to finish his degree. It also offers Business and Management Information Systems, MIS. Students can indulge themselves in innovative methodologies in the Kemper Art Center’s studio art spaces. So I guess it is a god choice to make.
