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

Make sure your son/daughter is willing to put forth the effort to succeed in college before you go spending tens of thousands of dollars on your child's education.

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

That the tuition was going to rise each year and that the starting tuition i came in with would go up as well which is unfair.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anybody who does not want to attend class because all of your teachers know you and if you are not in class they constantly will take note of it. The also have to be dedicated to what they are studying in order to succeed well.

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

The advice I would give would be to go and visit the college of your choice. You are going to want to get a feel for how the campus is and how the poeple are at that particular school. To make the most of your college experience make sure you get involved. Being involved in a club or a sport will give you things to do on the weekends and it will also help you make friends, people who will be your friends for the rest of your life.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that wants to work hard and is ok with the small town feel on their college campus.

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

Talk to people who currently attend the school and find out how they feel about the school. Also look at the outlook of the school when it comes to tuition prices and other fees. Also look at their national rankings in different degree programs. Finally follow your heart and go to the school you want, it is some of the best times you will have before you have to grow up!!!

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are focused, driven, hard-working individuals who have a strong sense of who they are and what they want to do in life, as well as how to get those things.

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

Our school is small and there is a low student to teacher ration. We have nationally ranked dining services, and a close-knit community on campus and in the surrounding town. There are opportunities to be involved in many different things on campus and there is a large variety of organizations and groups.

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

To parents: allow your students to make their own choice. Guide them in their decision and share your opinions, but ultimately they have to live with the choice so let them decide themselves. Also, be supportive of the things that your student is active in, whether you like your daughter playing rugby or your son being on the cheerleading squad, be supportive, it means the world to us to feel like you stand behind us. To students: work hard while you are in school. You or your parents are paying lots of money for you to get the best education you can, so do that. Don't exclude all fun, but remember why you are at college in the first place. Also, try new things, don't feel like just because you were never in the ski club in high school that you can't be in college. There are so many opportunities to enrich yourself and your life that you would be foolish to only do what you have always done.

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

As a student, I would say make the most of your limited time looking for the right fit first. Even if your parents want you to go to a specific university, if you don't want to, you don't have to. Money is tight, I know, but you need to find the education that is right for you. I never would have made it in a bigger public school, so I picked a private college in a farming town. You will find a way to get there, or wherever you want to go, if you want to be there. As a parent, let your child grow. You know all about money, the decisions, the stress of academic life plus social life, but you cannot be your child. Your children will experience things differently than you, and in doing so, will need to find a place that fits them. It may not be your choice for your child, but it isn't your choice to make. Being involved in the decision of which college, what state, etc., should be enough to let you know that your child cares enough about you to respect your suggestions and take them to heart.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I consider Ashland University as a school that holds themselves to such high standards that it puts pressure on the students to excel and keep excelling at an alarming rate or you might not fit in with the "rest of us." I don't want to be "The Ashland University" so we can rival OSU for a big name. I want to be a student at Ashland University, getting a normal education and having the opportunity to make my own choices. It is my life and for once, I would love the chance to live it without so many standards.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

For such a small campus, I am appalled at the amount of people who don't know what they want to do with their lives, outside of those graduating with education degrees. I, personally, do not know myself; and it is very disheartening to know that I "will probably" have to go on to graduate school, or "could possibly" graduate with a different degree because of one class I missed out on, or "might never" be the best, but only average. I want answers and there should be enough help around to find them, but there isn't.

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

Forget everything you've heard about colleges. You shouldnt pick a school based on a name. Actually visit the schol you are thinking of attending and see if it feels right. if it doesnt then its propably not the school for you. Also, go to the school more than once. One visit will not make or break a school. If you choose that school you'll be living there for 4 years. Make sure you like it. And finally, you will have a great experience no matter where you go. School is more than the classes you take or dorm rooms you'll live in. Its what you take out of the experience that makes your university special.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the atmosphere of the school. Its in the middle of ohio but it feels like its in New England. Its beautiful and welcoming.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The students who tend to be attracted to the school are very conservative and its hard to be a libreal here.

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

Don't pressure your kid too much when they're still in the younger years of high school. They have plenty of time to make up their mind. They don't need to decide what they want to do with the rest of their life as soon as they graduate high school, so don't make it seem like they do. Take your time and look at different schools; pick one that financially supports your major and that is an overall fit for you.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Ultra conservative. Someone who prefers to major in business or education because those are the prominent majors at this school. Other programs of study don't get nearly enough attention or finances.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The university spends a lot of money on certain aspects, while others get completely ignored.

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

Students should really research and visit any college that they are planning on attending. Sometimes, just the physical atmosphere can determine whether or not you will be happy there. Once you decide on a college, it is very important to prioritize. There isn't always time to do everything you did in high school, so you need to know that school work comes first. Although doing well academically is very important, it is also very important to spend time doing what makes you happy. People find happiness in different things, and it is important to remember that you might be different than your fellow students. Whether you like to read in your room, go out with friends, or just rest, all students need to take time to for themselves. To make the most of your college experience, it is most important to remember why you are going to school. Some people spend their college years as if the end result was just to make friends and party on the weekends, but some people always remember that their future depends on what they learn and how they develop while in college, and those people get their money's worth.

What's unique about your campus?

The size-not too big, but not tiny either.

Describe the students at your school.

They are motivated academically and participate in an assortment of campus activites. Each student is involved in several different clubs or programs.

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

Students: Go VISIT the school and sit in on classes. Meet with coaches, professors, and students on campus. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Apply for as many scholarships and grants as eligible. Don't go home every weekend. Become involved in clubs, take up leadership roles, get an on-campus job, and build relationships wth your professors as THEY are the ones that will write your references for future jobs or graduate schools. Parents, let your children go and branch out into adulthood. Give them more responsibility when it comes to filling out administrative forms, FAFSA, etc. and be supportive in their every decision.

The friendliness of the town, faculty, staff and students.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Sometimes there is not enough offered on the weekends by the school to keep students on campus.
