What Students Are Saying

3.76 Average Rating
I thought that William Wood's campus was beautiful. The students were very enthusiastic about sharing information about the school. I was also very interested in the school's L.E.A.D program; as it offers every student financial aid in return of the student being involved in school activities.
Jessica from Saint Louis, MO
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.
Rachel from Mazomanie, WI
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!
Alicia from Saint Peters, MO
A fantastic university with lots of opportunities, small class sizes and lots of individualized attention. The social life is just as fulfilling as the education, and the campus is truly beautiful. There is a fantastic network of supportive alumni, professors and administrators who will help you fulfill your dream.
