Educational and Social Experience

Students consistently rank Woodbury’s community among the top reasons why they love the university. They regularly highlight the sense of family that exists on campus as well as the close collaboration that occurs between students, faculty, staff and administrators—all working toward one goal: helping students achieve their dreams. For many students, this is a truly transformative experience, and one that they could only have at a small university like Woodbury.

Helping to foster this nurturing and collaborative environment is Woodbury’s highly active student government organization—known as the Associated Students of Woodbury University (ASWU)—as well as the Campus Activities Board (CAB). Both of these organizations are committed to continuously enhancing the social and cultural environment on campus by providing a variety of programs.

Additionally, the Office of Student Affairs works closely with ASWU to enrich both the social and educational experience by embracing students’ goals and aspirations. This collaborative environment helps to challenge students to develop both academically and personally, as well as provide the support necessary for them to do so.


Student Activities

The Office of Student Affairs in conjunction with ASWU and CAB host a variety of events and seminars. Including:

  • Group Fitness
  • Kickbacks
  • Cultural Events
  • and more!

Here are some regular activities for students at Woodbury:



Free group yoga classes, for all skill levels, are taught by a certified yoga instructor. Learn basic yoga poses, stretches, meditation and breathing exercises.

Improv Comedy
Improv comedy classes include group comedy games, sketches and other fun improv activities that anyone can do. It’s great way to build confidence and get to know people on campus.

Swing Dancing
Learn basic east coast and west coast swing dance moves taught by instructors from Pasadena’s Fred Astaire Studios. It’s a fun group dance class for all levels.
