Every student has a story. Even a campus as small as Woodbury University has a diverse background with students from different countries and cities. Some students are from Italy while others grew up five minutes away. The point is everyone is different, but everyone also has the same thing in common…they are working towards their education.
I want to put the spotlight on current students with differing backgrounds. My first interview is with Jacob Fuertes, a Woodbury University graphic design student. I met Jacob in February of 2012 when I was interviewing him for a position with the Woodbury University Phon-A-Thon. I instantly knew that he would be a great addition to the team with his great work ethic and energetic personality.
The Pacoima native is currently in his second year of the graphic design program at Woodbury University and he agreed to answer a few of my questions about being a college student.
Q: What do you like most about Woodbury University?
What I like about Woodbury University would have to be the size of the campus. The reason for that is a student fresh out of high school it’s easier to cope with the transfer from high school to college due to the size and not becoming overwhelmed.
Q: Do you work? If so, tell me about your job(s)?
Due to my hectic class hours it became hard for me to find a job out side of school. However, I was lucky enough to find a wonderful job on campus with the Phon-A-Thon with great people!=)
Q: What is it like being a full-time student and working?
Q: What are your plans after graduation?
Q: What is your most memorable moment at Woodbury?
The most memorable would be my first day at Woodbury because I remember I was running late and was scared of making a bad impression the first day. So like a freshman I was running all over campus not knowing where the classroom was until I ran into a student from SOAR and he pointed me to right direction.
Q: What was you favorite class and why?
Q: What are the goals you have from now until graduation?
Q: Where do you want to be in 10 years?
Hmm in 10yrs. I hope I have a great job and a house of my own, but honestly I’m not completely sure. When I get there I’ll let you know=)
