    William Woods is an absolute shithole. Please sit back and enjoy this tea-spilling review of truth. The dorms are subpar, definitely not the quality you’d expect from a private university. I payed extra to live in the “nice dorms” (RB Cutlip Hall). Upon moving in my dorm was infested with cockroaches. Maintenance also discovered my shower’s drain was installed incorrectly causing it to flood the bathroom every few uses (a semester and a half later and it still hasn’t been fixed. Now we have a mold problem. Let me debunk the seemingly amazing LEAD award. Why would a university pay students to go to school events? The scholarship forces students to go to events so the school can take pictures of how “active” campus is for their social media. The events are insignificant and useless. Every student is offered the scholarship and in my perspective it’s more of a fine for students that don’t attend the events. As far as academia goes, William Woods is easier than my high school. I’m not talking AP classes either- my high school freshman English was more challenging than my college English class. If you’re looking to get an education and not just a degree then keep looking. Be prepared to gain the freshman 30 at William Wood’s dining hall. The infamous “Tucker Stomach Ache” is a running joke on campus, especially with faculty. They contract the task of feeding the campus to a local company called Fresh Ideas. Don’t let the name fool you- there is absolutely nothing fresh about it. Good luck finding a single meal under 1200 calories. Fresh Ideas is also known for mislabeling food and providing false/inaccurate nutritional info. The food is full of preservatives and everything is fried. A decent number of students on campus refuse to use their meal plan because of the horrors faced in the obesity imminent dining hall. The campus. If you’ve made it this far you’ve probably seen photos of the “beautiful” lakes on campus. The one with the bridge is dyed blue for events and has a very unpleasant odor. The classrooms are average and kept fairly clean. The housekeeping staff looks like they’re all ghosts from the Haunted Mansion. (P.S. William Woods is known for paranormal activity all around campus, if you’re into that type of thing) (The rest of this review is specifically about the Equine Program) The Equine Department. Oh lord, where to begin. Be prepared to receive the most basic education of horses. You won’t learn tips and tricks to give you an edge in the industry, just a head’s up. You will have a piece of paper, but you won’t have the knowledge you need to succeed after graduating. You learn way more in your summer jobs than in the classroom. Maybe it’s just me, but I thought I would be learning revolutionary training techniques and not shoveling horse crap for points in class every week. William Woods treats animals poorly. Please don’t donate your horse here, most of them go crazy or get worked into the ground. They get almost average care, rarely massage or chiropractors. Most of the equine staff is fairly inexperienced and paying for their instruction is a waste. The current saddle seat instructor was a beginning instructor for children with no experience in teaching advanced riders in the saddle or the classroom. But, in their defense, why would a talented equine professional want to teach here? In conclusion- if you’re looking for another round of high school in the middle of nowhere then William Woods is the place for you! If you want to fulfill the obese uncultured American stereotype (or if you already do) then you’ll fit right in. Throw away your dignity and pursuit of a real higher education to journey to the land of cousin-fucking (Missouri) to join this extremely overrated university!

    Communicate as much as possible with your admissions counselor. My counselor helped me through applying, and made me feel very comfortable about the school. Also it is always a good idea to visit any school that you are considering.
