The school is small which gives it charm. Sometimes it is hard to connect and meet people but once you find a good group of friends you would love the experience. The classes and teachers are flexible, there is never any issues getting the classes you want, and your teachers are available to help you. Teachers respond to your emails and most are very knowledgeable. The campus is beautiful and there are many things to do near by. People do not give this school enough credit. I received a much better education than many of my friends who went to other schools.

Question
I attended Woodbury because I didn't want toQuite BrightArchitecture
I attended Woodbury because I didn't want to be a number and I wasn't. I attended the San Diego Campus for Architecture and my class sizes had a student to teacher ratio of 1:12 on average, sometimes were 1:8. Due to the student to teacher average and the quality of the teachers, I felt that I definitely got what I paid for. Several of my professors also taught at SciArc and U.C. San Diego or were adjunct at other schools(including Ivy League). The tuition may seem pricey but this school has great transfer scholarships. My starting salary my first year out was $44,000 and my salary ten years later is $110,000 plus bonuses, pension and car allowance.

Question
Having gone to this school, I know whatBright
Having gone to this school, I know what modern-day slavery is like. You may think those words are harsh words but let me explain.

Their vice-president, Phyllis Cremer, is the most abusive and controlling person you'll ever meet. There was a student named, George Rivera III, who would humiliate and insult students on a frequent basis, and execs within the school would say "George is not perfect" in his defense and that "nothing is going to change". Students who didn't suck up to them, like myself, would be thrown under the bus for simply standing up for oneself or others by Phyllis Cremer and others.

The reason Phyllis Cremer is worse than the rest of them is because she tries to control students' every move and when she's caught doing this with proof or she's caught lying, she plays the victim and seeks sympathy from others. I should point out that Phyllis is a black woman who tries to seem liberal but is very conservative. She uses her ethnicity and gender as a tool to be treated better NOT EQUAL by mainly white men, because of their "white guilt". Well, I'm not white so I don't have to buy into her disingenuous BS and after I told her off, much like George, she tries to discredit me through lies and laughing at my worth as a human being.

If you don't believe me ask the maintenance workers who were mistreated and the school promptly fired the woman who stuck up for them, and then she sued the school, and then the school "settled out of court". If I was her, I'd continue the lawsuit and get all the money the school has scammed from students, and then give it back to the students because they made a HUGE mistake in applying to this school. We all did.
