Great introduction to the Design worldWoodbury gave me all of the necessary skills and motivation to work for large companies in the Hospitality Design arena. I am now a Partner in my own Hotel Design Studio doing work for Marriott, Hilton and Boutique Hotels. Thank you Woodbury!
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.M
, Bachelor's degree
Woodbury University, a great place to succeed!Woodbury University is a home away from home where I was able to develop my best abilities. With small class sizes I did not feel like a number. I felt my teachers and staff were truly interested in my education and future.
