It's close to home, about 10-15 minutes, you're in and get to class right away. Teachers are passionate and there is a lot of support. Classes are small and you really get the family feel because it is so small you tend to get to know everybody, specially if you are involved. There are a lot of opportunities to learn things that aren't even in your major. Staff and Faculty are very nice and intelligent. You feel that you are adequately guided and there is always someone there to answer any questions.

The school itself if small, so parking is available and you can get anywhere on campus within 5 minutes. There are small classes so you tend to get a lot of one on one and feedback from professors as well as from students. A lot of the classes are discussion based after lecture, so you get a lot of points of views and really dig into the material. It's extremely easy to get an appointment to see your counselor so you always know where you are going and you get the classes you need and want. You get free tutoring in all subjects and there are many organizations you can take part in.

The University will be opening a new gym next semester as well as a student center, the library is small but you have access to a lot of web based data, the campus is wonderful to look at very green and clean and there are always events on campus. During midterms they offered free massages and meditation for students, and it seems that almost every week there are events. Most students hang out outdoors or at Woody's, where everyone dines.

There are many labs and computers available for student use, having your own laptop helps because that way you can work remotely from your room or outside and enjoy the weather and the campus' beauty.

I haven't even met anyone that does drugs, most students are involved in clubs and organizations or working hard on getting their work done. There is a lot to do and we haven't seen any type of incident regarding drugs since I've attended.

I'm sorry, I don't live on campus so I couldn't say.
College Junior 2013-11-27T21:40:02Z
In Southern California you really have every option available to you, all you have to do it look.
College Junior 2013-11-27T21:38:54Z
I wouldn't be an appropriate person to ask, I drive to and from campus so I haven't really even looked into public transportation.
College Junior 2013-11-27T21:36:41Z
What can you say, it's Southern California, the best weather in the WORLD!
College Junior 2013-11-27T21:36:09Z
There's really only one on campus location, the food is great and healthy and there are options as well as the grill where you can order what you'd like. It's a very small campus and sometimes a bit of a wait (5 minutes to 10 minutes) during the lunch hour but overall it's a good dining experience.

Living in Southern California is sometimes the best place to be. At Woodbury you have the beaches within 30 to 45 minutes from campus, you're close to down town Los Angeles so everyone can partake in cultural activities,tons of museums, parades, hiking, parks, anything you can think of, in the winter you can even take a trip to big bear and enjoy the snow. Living off campus has its pros and cons, on campus has many advantages but I live off campus, about 10-15 minutes from the University and I haven't had any trouble, the surrounding are is safe.

The University has students from all ethnic and economic backgrounds. I've found a general interest for those that are different from the average american student and a positive attitude and respect is displayed when asking questions about other people's backgrounds. It seems that every one is willing to share experiences and shows general acceptance, tolerance and compassion for other student's stories.

Guys & Girls:
The school has a lot of fashion design majors so there are groups of students that dress very well to go to school, there's also a strong business school and when doing presentations a lot of students must dress professionally to make the grade, but other majors, have different types of people and styles of dress, you have the jeans and t-shirt days and the fashionista days, it depends on the whether and how busy and hectic school gets, specially during midterms and finals. For the most part, it's been my experience that those whom I've had in my classes have been nice and hardworking.

The school admissions office was wonderful and putting me at easy and letting me know that based on my grades I would most likely qualify for many scholarships the school gives. The financial aid office was then extremely helpful and guiding me to fill out all the necessary paperwork (online).

I have not seen any drug use so far on campus. I am sure it is there somewhere.

Most are friendly. You always run into a few that are not nice any place you go.
College Sophomore 2013-09-09T18:38:46Z
The rooms are small but clean. Living on campus at Woodbury is better then most other campus's
College Sophomore 2013-08-26T07:55:14Z
It is fairly easy, however it can become confusing at times because some information is on their website but it is easily overlooked.
College Sophomore 2013-08-26T07:54:07Z
The food is enough to suffice the whole campus, however it is low in quality and has very little variety than from other schools. It also consists of low nutritional quality which as a result the students fall ill.
College Sophomore 2013-08-26T07:52:42Z
Greek life is kind to non-Greeks and are well known by almost everyone on campus. Our Greek life also goes out and helps out the community in a variety of ways whether its volunteering somewhere or giving a helping hand. Along with that they also throw marvelous and fun events for the students.
College Senior 2013-08-12T00:03:24Z
overall getting classes are easy if you register on time and consult with an advisor; I wish there were more elective options and definitely wish there was some form of sports on campus
College Senior 2013-08-11T23:58:47Z
the school is small so the majors available aren't that varied
College Senior 2013-08-11T23:54:35Z
the labs are easily accessible and open late but the network is slow and the computers are pretty slow too
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T04:53:04Z
The campus is small and there are a decent amount of computer labs both PC and Mac but architecture is a big major a Woodbury University that requires certain programs and software to be used by students and computers don't have the programs or they are limited to only PC's which most likely are taken. Computers run slow, but I will say that they do try their best to have lab tecqnicians that try to be available to help with any questions or problems. Printing is an issue, maybe not so much the cost, but plotters and printers are unreliable and tend to break down very easily and it does become and issue. Network reliablility is fairly good and wireless acces is really good anywhere on campus. Since labs close it it very useful to have your own computer and printer at least for 81/2 x 11 prints and its cheaper then printing at school

Woodbury University is located in Burbank, CA and is in a nice area located near downtown Burbank, west Hollywood, and about 20 minutes from downtown LA. The school has events for students of all ages and those 21 and older are able to drink at these events. There are restaurants and hookah lounges in downtown Burbank for those who are ineligible to drink and there are always 18 and older clubs in Hollywood and in Los Angeles, which can be reached by the metro, bus, or taxi. Fraternities and sorrorities have parties and if not students on campus know about the local parties or kickbacks.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
