WHY I LOVE WOODLAWN
“If you’ve been to Woodlawn you’ve most definitely noticed the old plantation house, Stinson Hall, located at the front of campus. As a girl with a love of history, this old-fashioned aspect of campus is amazing. Speaking of a love for history, Woodlawn is all about independent lifelong learners, so they give you a lot of freedom in deciding what you want to study. For my senior project, I’m looking at Victorian dresses (I’m even going to attempt to make one!). One of my closest friends is studying the art of singing and songwriting, and another is basing her project on baking! Woodlawn instills in you the urge to learn and explore your interests. This year, I’m taking an introduction course to Japanese. The lesson plan is designed entirely by me! I worked with the upper school coordinator to find the right resources and create a schedule, and now I’m close to knowing over 100 different Japanese characters. All in all, Woodlawn is a really great place where the atmosphere is excellent and stimulating, while the workload is stuff that you want to do. Goodbye, boring, cement school rooms, and hello Woodlawn!”
