Founded in 1870, William Woods University is a private institution located in Fulton, Missouri. WWU is historically affiliated with the Christian Church Disciples of Christ but is now independent. Noted programs at the school include equestrian studies, American Sign Language interpreting, and criminal justice. WWU offers all full-time undergraduates the chance to take part in an LEAD program, which consists of attending events such as lectures, athletic events, and community service, and then culminates in a reward of $2,500-$5,000 a year.
William Woods has been my home for the past two years. Even though it is a small private college in the middle of a small town, I feel like I have all that I need! I never want to graduate from WWU but eventually I will be walking out with a degree in Psychology and Communications and four years worth of memories and lifelong friends!

William Woods University is a great experience because of the small campus and down-to-earth professors. The equestrian program here is amazing-in the semester that I have been here, I have learned more about riding and the horse industry than I have over my entire life. That speaks alot, since I grew up at a horse training stable.
