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

The few items that make Ashford unique from other schools is the personal touch each student receives. Both the faculty and staff know most of the students by name and often show concern for them, no matter what it is they deal with. Ashford is a smaller school, yet it provides, in most cases, a better education than any of the larger schools in the nation. The instructors care for how well each student does and will help them to be successful after they graduate. The smaller class sizes allow more open discussion of topics.

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

The best advice that I could give is for the prospective student to make visits to the schools you are interested in. This way they will find out about the community the school is in. Do not choose a school just because of it's name. Choose the school on how comfortable the staff makes you feel, whether you like/dislike the class size, and most importantly if the education you will receive from the school is worth the time, effort, and money you will need to put into it. Choosing a school and how well you do there will affect the rest of your life. It is not a decision that should be rushed into. Research the choices and choose the school that allows you to accomplish your goals without changing the person that you have become. The perfect school will enable you to be yourself, yet guide you in achieving your education. Remember the best school might not be the biggest in the nation, so always leave your options open. If you visit a school and feel comfortable with the staff, students, community, and price that you will pay then you probably have found the school to attend.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The person who attends Ashford University should be one who is not afraid of being away from family. Ashford students are from a wide range of backgrounds and future students who are prejudiced because of color, sexual orientation, or other outward appearances will have a hard time. Future students should be able to be flexible in study habits.

Don't stop at the first school that tickles your fancy. Look at many schools, athletic programs, academic programs, classrooms, and evaluate all of it together. Start early and make no rash decision.

Finding the right college is a major decision that is very personal. Relax, allow yourself time to research different schools. The college your friend went to may not suit you. Think about things like if you want to live on campus or attend online. You know yourself better than anyone. Figure out your basic wants; compile a list from the library and internet or bookstore of accredited colleges that reflect your needs. Now it?s time to talk to an advisor. Careful now, some advisors are great salespeople. Advisors should be helpful, not pressuring. Advisors will guide you and help with overall costs, financial aid/loan availability, transferred courses, etc. Feel free to ask advisors questions about campus life, online programs, and diversity. With this information, you can visit the colleges or do virtual tours online and start applying. To make the most of your college experience, you will need to find a balance between your social life and academics. With the right school, curriculum, and desire to reach your goal it will be personally rewarding. The results of your decision will affect you for the rest of your life, so make a sound decision about your education.

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

Finding the right college can often be a stressful and nail-biting experience. Many hours are spent deciding which colleges to apply for, and which one to eventually attend. Having experienced this myself, my greatest advice would be to follow your heart. Don't do what others are doing, or go somewhere for the name or location. Go to a place that makes you happy. Most of the classes, teachers, and other students are going to be the same where ever you go. So instead to a college that you may be unhappy with down the road, go to a place where you truly feel comfortable. Life is more about experience than anything. Thats why we go to college. To obtain experience. Thats what employers want, and thats why it is so important. It is expensive, and time consuming, but completely worth all the tears and fears.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I dont think any person who is not applied and determined should attend a university. A college education is an enormous committment and is also extremely expensive. It is a waste of time and money for a person who is not completely determined to recieving a degree.

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

The school's abillity to assist me with whatever I need. They respond to emails and calls very efficiently. They seem to have the students best interest in mind. I am proud to attend a university that truly cares about what happens to those attending.

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

The choice to make for attending college is very important, there are many questions you should ask before making the final decision. In considering your field of study, make certain your choices of colleges offer what you are looking for. It is wise to talk to an Academic COunselor, with their knowledge and information, many of the questions you need aswered, will be. Check with the finacial aid office, there are some avenues they can pursue for you and others they will advise to you that you may be able to secure. Please consider your need of housing as well, many locations have housing on campus and suitable housing off campus. Please consider if you are in need of parking on or near campus, some require fees or permits to use these facilities. The decision you make i for your future, choosing the right one will help you attain your goal. To learn is progress, an education is valuable, together they are priceless to one's mind.

What's unique about your campus?

The enrollment process was very personal and helpful. The academic Advisors are extremely helpful and attentive to the individual students needs. The classroom has such an openess, yet etiqutte is observed by all. The professors or instructors are very help, and also attentive to the student and their progress. The availability of books and other materials are handled by a great company. When materials are ordered they are shipped the same day by 2:30 PM, this allows the material to arrive within two business days. Having attended another university, Ashford University and the staff make you feel welcome.
