    Business. Education. Fine arts. Science. Sports. We have designed our courses of study not just to prepare you for a career, but to prepare you for life in a world that is dynamic, global and rich in possibilities. It is a world where you will need the tools to make decisions, to make your own way, and to continue learning throughout your life. 

    You will find that a common thread runs through the experience of every William Woods student — undergraduate or graduate, on campus, on location or online. The genuine and heartfelt commitment of a caring academic community is at the heart of everything we do. William Woods will amaze you, challenge you, coach you, stretch you, and walk alongside you as you reach for your goals … and flourish.

    How that happens depends on who you are. An athlete will find inspiration from the achievements of our 1936 Olympic medalist and other past Owls, immortalized in our Athletics Hall of Fame. Globetrotters will want to look into our Woods Around the World travel-study program. A passion for horses and education could lead an online graduate student to find fulfillment teaching others to train champions. A service-minded student can study American Sign Language or work as a teaching intern for the Lakota Nation. And every student on campus will enjoy the companionship and service activities of the Greek community at William Woods. 

    Getting involved on campus in clubs and organizations promises to ensure you have an enriching college experience. Whether it be in a club within your major, religious-based, or a fraternity or sorority, involved students see the benefits of joining. William Woods has close to 40 active student organizations. As you peruse the student organizations, if you can't find what you are looking for, students have the opportunity to start their own organizations!
