Meet the IPAs (continued)


​                                                  Meet your Woodbury IPAs!
IPA: Vishnu Reddy Medapati
Major: Architecture
Class Level: 5th year
Country of Origin: India


My full name is Vishnuvardhan Reddy Medapati. It’s a mouthful, which causes me to find it difficult to introduce myself to new people. I was born in Andhra Pradesh, a state in the southern part of India. I came to the US at the age of 18, to pursue my Bachelor’s degree in Architecture at Woodbury University in Burbank, California. It has been an amazing four-year stretch in this school, which has gone by extremely quickly. Not only has it provided me a vast amount of useful skills in my discipline and other disciplines, but also in life experiences.

Apart from architecture I have several interests. I enjoy travelling, and have been lucky enough to have been able to visit half of the world at my young age. One of the reasons I love traveling so much is my fascination of experiencing new cultures and learning new traditions. Every time I get a break from school I attempt to go to a new place. Of the little time that is spent away from the demanding academic architecture life, I invest it in reading books, spending time with my friends and meeting new people. I love music and spend a generous amount of time browsing for new tunes.

Being in a new country, trying to adjust to a foreign educational system can be challenging. As IPAs we are here to help you make a smooth transition into your new environment. I’ve been in your position and understand the obstacles you face. I’m here to help!!

Country of Origin: Saudi Arabia
 Hi, I’m Abdulaziz Alrumayyan , a 2nd  year architecture student from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I speak Arabic and English . I know what it’s like to be the new guy in school and I love trying to help out international students with anything I can at school or in the Burbank area. I became an IPA because I like to meet and get to know new people at Woodbury University and in Burbank.
