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

The best thing you can do is visit the colleges you are interested in. Some colleges that you thought you were interested in may not feel right. You need to make the best choice for yourself.

What's unique about your campus?

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.

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

Small, conservative rural-town school that's a really nice place if you like that sort of thing.

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

What makes a school good versus bad is in the eye of the beholder. I'm attending a small university in the town I grew up in. Many kids I grew up with vowed they'd never stay in town and laughed at the idea of attending our university. But I took interest, and for me, that was okay. I prefer the small environment and the ability to know everyone that I pass on the sidewalk. I enjoy the fact that I can grab some coffee across the street with my favorite professors and talk about things other than academia. For some, my ideal school choice is aweful. Some may want a huge campus and to know a smaller percentage of the student body. Some want a huge lecture hall and to be a number to their professors. And that's okay too. Don't go to a college because your friends are going there and don't choose one over another based off of someone else's opinion. Explore the school and its environment and choose the school that's best for you. It's the greatest time of growth in life and you have to enjoy it.

What's unique about your campus?

Small scale and intimate campus. You can walk to class in 3 minutes and everyone you see you've seen before.

Do not choose a college based on location or cost. Make sure the school is the best fit for you and has the best possible program for your major.

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

I really had no unknowns when I came to this school.

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

The lack of social life because the campus is dead on the weekends. There is nothing to do.

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

Find the school that fits you best. If you don't think you could get along with the tour guide, chances are you won't like it at that school. Tour guides are chosen to represent the majority of the students at the school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I laid back person who wants to mostly focus on school and not partying.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The amount of people that do here.

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

I would say to start looking early. Have a list of what you want in a school, what is important to you. For example, strong athletic teams, activities on campus, small classes. Also know what you dont want. I would say to look at as many school as you have time to look at. The more schools you check out the better feel you will have for what you want and do not want.

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

I consider the worst thing to be all the strict rules there are. Especially for living in the dorms. It would be alot easier if freshmen had to live on campus and then after that it would get to be their choice for housing. Ashland is the wettest dry campus.

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

There are small class sizes and no huge lecture halls. This allows a better student teacher relationship and really helps the students learn much better. Also, the campus is a dry campus, therefore there is no pressure at all to drink alcohol to fit in.

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

Visit many colleges. While visiting really get a grasp on what student life is like on campus, and find out the difference between each campus and see which one fits your idea of college the best. College is going to be totally new experience, and just be open to whatever college life brings to you.

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

Out track program is one of the best programs in the nation year in and year out. Also. we have one of the best education programs in the nation! (and the student dining program is amazing!)

What's unique about your campus?

I believe that the class sizes and the variety of classes are the best thing about Ashland. The classes sizes never exceed 30 people and we are encourged to take classes in the intrests of history, religion, art and much more.

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

I think the worst thing about my school is that you are not allowed to live of campus until the age of 22. I think that is a bit silly since most graduating seniors are only 21. I believe that juniors and seniors should have a choice whether to live on or off campus.
