Why did you choose William Woods?
I choose WWU because I truly believe it is a school where you can have it all! The small campus allowed me to become involved in Greek Life and clubs on top of being a Student-Athlete. Being at William Woods has allowed me to grow as a person and become more involved than I ever thought I would be.

A few questions with Abby:
Who is your favorite professor and why?
My favorite Professor is Dr. Lee Bailey of the Accounting Department. She is my favorite because accounting can become a bit boring sometimes, but Dr. Bailey makes class fun and isn’t afraid to provide comic relief from time to time. She also gives great career advice and helps you discover your passion in the accounting field.
What’s the best LEAD event you’ve ever been to?
The best LEAD event I’ve been to was the concert on the dock last fall. It brought the whole campus together and everyone got to enjoy some great music on a beautiful fall evening by the lake.
How’s the food on campus?
The food on campus is great. I was surprised with how many options the dining hall offers. From the Salad Bar to the World Beat center, you can always find something that will please your taste buds. Needless to say, you will never go hungry!
Do you feel like and individual or number?
Here at William Woods, I definitely feel like an individual. The small class sizes allow you to have a personal relationship with professors who work closely with you to make sure you are able to succeed. I can truthfully say that all professors know their students by name.
What’s Greek life like on campus?
Greek life is not what you would expect if you have the stereotypical view like they show in the movies. Greek life is a tight-knit community that offers incredible support and leadership opportunities to men and women.
Was it easy to meet people on campus?
It was extremely easy to meet people on campus. The abundant orientation events that are held make it very easy to meet new people. As soon as you arrive, there are a ton of opportunities to meet new people and make great connections. I made friends on campus by participating in all orientation events as well as going through sorority recruitment.
