Hrand (Harry)
Accounting (Class of 2022)

Hrand (Harry)

(he/him/his)

I come from Los Angeles, CA.

I speak English and Armenian.

Clubs/groups you are involved in on campus: C.E.O Woodbury and Woodbury Accounting Society.

Favorite courses: Management 326 Organizational Behavior, Accounting 300 Cost Accounting, Psychology 200 Introduction to Psychology, and Economics 203 Macroeconomics.

Favorite spot on campus and why: the Alumni Quad, as it is my opportunity to see students and professors outside of the classroom and it is located directly in front of the School of Business.

Hobbies / interests: outside of Accounting, my hobbies are filmmaking, graphic design, music production, and mixed martial arts. My latest hobby is to obtain as many licenses and certifications in various industries as possible, such as insurance, real estate, law, and accounting.

I chose to attend Woodbury University because I discovered the benefits of attending a campus that offers small class sizes, career-focused curriculums, and faculty who not only educate students but also are practitioners. What appealed to me the most was that Woodbury’s School of Business is regionally accredited and also holds the highest AACSB professional business accreditation, which not many institutions of this caliber carry (most students do not know the significance of receiving a degree from an institution with this accreditation!)

I chose to attend Woodbury University because My passion in life is writing, so it was excellent when I found out that Woodbury offers such a unique major that focuses purely on writing as a career.

Evelyna
Game Design + Professional Writing (Class of 2021)

Evelyna

(she/her/hers)

I come from Burbank, CA.

I speak English, Armenian, and a bit of Spanish.

Clubs/groups you are involved in on campus: I’m the Treasurer of the Woodbury Arts Association.

Favorite courses: I’ve enjoyed a lot of my game classes for teaching me a lot of new skills, especially the ones that focus on programming. However, ANIM 204 Layout and GAME 323 Story Interactive are some of my top favorites I’ve taken since I feel like they’ve nurtured my art and writing skills the most.

Favorite Spot on campus and why:  It would probably have to be the little patio area behind the Writing Center. It’s a charming, quiet spot that many people don’t stumble upon, so it’s a nice place to sit by one of the benches and do work. Or you can just enjoy the nature!

Hobbies / interests:  I love drawing and illustrating. It’s always acted as a springboard for me to express myself, so it’s an interest of mine I strive to constantly improve in. Also I love playing any kinds of games: board games, video games — you name it! I’m always willing to give something a try.

I chose to attend Woodbury University because I liked how well put together the Game Design curriculum was. I genuinely felt like there was a nice balance of infusing an interdisciplinary versus specialized approach to the classes, so I foresaw coming out of Woodbury with a balanced and marketable skill set. Short commute time was definitely a nice bonus as well.
