Is Woodbury University a good school?

There is no one way to define a "good" college or university.

There are a few statistics that can give you a good idea of how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its students.

Retention, graduation, and job placement statistics all give valuable information about the quality of the student experience, before and after graduation.
