            Instructors and Small Campus Size are Great AssetsAt Woodbury I wasn't just a number. There were ample opportunities to be active in student organizations and to know my instructors on a deeper level. As an Animation student, Burbank was the perfect place to study, and my professors were industry veterans who shared real world experience.
