I chose William Woods not once, but twice, because I felt the program prepared me for my next steps well and I enjoyed the instructors. I am a busy wife and mom and it was all possible following the WWU programs.

The Activities and Athletics Administration program furthered my development as an educator and helped prepare me to become an Activities Director. The course work was all relevant and taught by faculty that are in the field or have been in the field of activities/athletics administration. In this program not only do you get a chance to become a better leader and educator but you also have a chance to network with colleagues that have the same goals as you.
