Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Ashford's online programs provide flexiblity in achieving educational goals which, if persued in the traditional manner, would not be achievable.

Describe the students at your school.

I have not formally met my classmates, but the interaction required through discussions during on-line classes creates and develops unique relationships.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could return to High School as a senior I would stress the importance of a higher education. I would tell myself how important the development of study skills are in high school so that they can be applied at the college level. I would also remind myself that although it is important to enjoy the college experience, I should not loose focus as to why I am there in the first place.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I think being the person that I am, I don't think I would encourage more growth and exploration before embarking on a collegiate tenure. My 20's were difficult and I think I could have avoided a lot of events if I had just went out into the world and experienced things such as AmeriCorps and so forth.

What kind of person should attend this school?

An individual that leads a busy life with many responsibilities i.e. family and work. It is also excellent for individuals fresh out of high school that want to start out slow and really discover where their passions are.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

How much tuition is and the disbursement schedule of financial aid funds. I new the amount of tuition, but didn't realize the financial hit my aid was taking before I saw any remainder of funds.

They are a great athletic school, however they are also know for their amazing accelerated programs that allow working people to get their degree quickly and efficiently.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

They have allowed me to get my degree in a timely fashion, without creating a less than superb program. They allow me to get the same education someone who goes on campus is receiving but with a more convenient method.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Save money, I know that going out with your friends is amazing but cut back what you spend on going out. It is just as much fun to hang out at your house for a much cheaper price. Don?t take for granted all of the hard work you are doing someday it will pay off!

Angela
What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself this: Angela, have you lost your mind? quiting school and getting your GED is the worst decision you could ever make. Going to college is not as scary as you tink it is going to be. You can still go to school and raise a family. Can you imagine how hard it is going to be to raise kids without a college education? what are you going to do when your kids want to follow in your footsteps and quit school? Oh trust me they will, and when they want to get a car?, how about just being able to eat? Well you need to think about this stuff. One day a GED will not be good enough, you will have to have a college education to make it. Why would you want to wait to go back to school when you are almost 40 yrs old, why not go now and begin your life the way you deserve to..

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag about the ease of attending an online campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to get ready to enjoy college life and all the new friends you will make. The work load is heavy but learning great time management skills in high school will definetly help.

Nothing really. Everything was very easy to understand and many of the questions I had about coming to the university I had answered very quickly.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I knew what I knew now about my college experience, I would have made a change to study harder and look more into a college that had the best opportunity for me and go away to college. I would have applied to a college that I know would have made me completely happy where I can study a major I know I would be able to find a good paying job to help secure my future.

What's unique about your campus?

It is online and helps me to have time to go to school when I was working a full time job.
