Woods Online Student Experiences
What current students and recent graduates are saying about their distance experiences at The Woods:
With my work schedule and as a single parent, Woods Online was the best fit for me. I can work, fit in my daughter's needs, and still work in my coursework.
When my daughter was younger, I waited until she went to bed to study, but now I study at various times. I take my laptop to her gymnastics class and study while I wait. I think it's good that she sees me as a college student, and now she wants to go too!

I found SMWC while I was looking for a distance education program that would work with my hectic schedule. As a full-time manager at a local company, as well as a husband and father of three children, I needed a program that was going to be flexible.
I started in the 16 week format, but had a tendency to wander and let my time get away from me, making life more difficult for me and my family as I would spend the last few weeks buried in my school work. My wife encouraged me to check into the 8 week format and I found I need the structure of it to help keep me on task.

The staff in the Woods Online office is amazing. There are so many people out here that are willing to help you. And with the changes to D2L, you don't feel like you're in a distance program because you are able to converse with classmates with the discussion boards.

The biggest factor that made me choose SMWC were the quick responses that I received from everyone. I could tell that they truly care about my goal of becoming a teacher. I love how the admissions and financial aid departments as well as the professors are so responsive and will go out of their way to help with any questions.
I'm able to work full-time and get teaching experience while I am taking courses online. Plus, I'm able to continue coaching football and basketball. Time management is critical!
