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

I would tell myself to get involved in as much as possible. I would want to experience everything possible while in school and not pass up opportunities to grow as an individual. I would say that schoolwork is the most important aspect of college and to give everything i've got in regards to my schoolwork. I would mostly want to tell myself to never doubt, never questions, and never pass up any great chances that come my way.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Career driven, academically driven, athlete

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

Ashland is an expert at recruiting young/naive high-schoolers. They are deceitful, and can get their students through the door but just can't seem to keep em.

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

Visit a lot of colleges/universities. Look at schools you weren't originally considering--be open to possiblities (state vs. private, D3 vs. D1, in-state vs. out-of-state...). Don't let cost deter you from applying... but definitely consider it when you are choosing which school to actually attend. Also, be sure to consider near every aspect of the college experience prior to making a decision; such as student activites, study abroad, campus housing policies or residence life, greek affairs, is it a dry campus (?), religious affiliation (if any), campus dining, academic affairs (obviously), size (number of undergrad students or students residing on campus), local activities/jobs/places to go/things to do... you may not think this matters, they will significantly alter your college experience later on.

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

Just find a place that matches your personality. I find it much easier to be around people that have similar interests and personalities as my own. You just have to find that place that works for you! Also, get involved on campus by doing a sport, getting a job on campus (which can also provide some needed funds for necessities), playing intramurals, or joining some kind of club or organization that appeals to you. Don't just do things because they'll look good on a resume. Do them for you! Make sure to keep focused on your schoolwork or you will fall behind, making your college experience much more stressful and less enjoyable. Other than that just have fun, enjoy everything college has to offer, and get good experience for your future out in the working world!

What's unique about your campus?

Ashland University has a very good community around it and the people here are always so kind and accomodating. Also, Ashland is not an enormous school but not super small either, so it is about the perfect size for me! Finally, many of the buildings on campus are very new and well taken care of, and the food is very, very good!

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

Some of Ashland's policies restrict living and the expression of its students, such as its policy on off-campus living and alcohol usage. In order to live off campus at Ashland you must be 22 years old, married, or have served in a branch of the military which makes it impossible for many students to ever live off-campus in more affordable housing. Also, Ashland is a dry campus for everyone, even if they are legally able to consume alcohol. And Ashland's tuition is quite high.

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

Incoming freshmen need to recognize where they plan to be within the next five or so years. Do they see themselves still in school? Or out in the workforce? Knowing how much education they plan on getting and what their chosen career path is will help narrow down college choices immensely. For example, as an aspiring teacher, I knew choosing a university that specialized in education would be ideal. In order to fully grasp the "college experience" one must recognize that staying on campus for the weekends is a must. The campus usually comes to life when classes are over for the week, allowing the student to become more easily submerged in the experience. It is during the times when a student is not worrying over classes and other obligations that he or she will have the chance to explore new areas and develop friendships.

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

Classroom sizes can be as small as five people.

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

Make sure you choose a school that you will like that fits your child's needs to grow and expand as an adult. Make sure the school that they choose is for their major and not just to have fun and party. School is about growing as an individual and the child needs to feel like they will be able to grow as a person as well as recieve a high quality education from a high quality school. Its not necessarily the size of the school a student goes to but the quality that matters when choosing the right school.

What's unique about your campus?

The small class sizes and the great teacher student communication avaliability.

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

The age limit to live off campus and the dry campus policy when everyone drinks anyways.

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

Before selecting a college, it is extremely important to find where you fit in best. College is a huge investment in your time, effort and future, and it is not cheap. My best advice is to come up with a list of the most important characteristics of a potential college. After coming up with your ideal values (size, reputation, location, living arrangements, extra curriculars, etc.) find schools that best match these qualities. Campus visits are also important, as you can really get a feel of the vibe of the campus. Don't settle for what school you "should" go to. Your friends, parents, and boyfriend/girlfriend will really have an opinion of what you should do. Don't let this influence your decision too much, because you will be the one attending the school, not them. Do what will make you happy. This is probably the most imortant piece of advice I can give to anyone looking at college. Do what makes you feel good, get involved, and don't be afraid to put yourself out there. You only get one life, make it count.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone could do well here. Especially if you're interested in business or education - Ashland is known for those programs. Internships and co-ops are available and important for our programs.

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

Beautiful campus, great business program (I'm a marketing major) and internship opportunities, and award-winning student dining.

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

The best advice I have to give parents or students about finding the right college and making the mos of the experience would be to follow your heart. The odds of finding a school that has everything you love and absolutely nothing you dislike are slim. Start looking early. Visit as many places as you want and ask a lot of questions! Things like housing and dining on campus are extremely important. Make the most of it and get involved. Greek life is a great way to do this. You meet tons of people and form a bond that will last a lifetime. Don't get caught up in the party scene. Keep your head on straight. Don't procrastinate. HAVE FUN!!!

What's unique about your campus?

The professors are great. They are more than just teachers. They are definitely people I will keep in touch with.

I feel the parents and students should agree on their process of finding the right college that best fits the student. The student should make sure that they look at around and visit before even making a decision. Just by visiting it and looking at the campus helps the students get a feel for what they are looking for in their college experience. Students and parents also need to find out about how much the school is willing to offer you in scholarships and grants. Know how much you can afford and what you may need help on. Talk to the administration, let them help you to satify your needs as a parent and also as a student. A student wants to feel comfortable in the school they choose because that is where they will be most of their time, studying and learning their careers for the future. Students want to make sure that a college is right for them because that is what will make their college experience worth it in their end. Take the time to really figure out if that college is right for you and not anyone else.

What's unique about your campus?

The food is the best thing on campus. Ashland serves the most amazing meals and you are completely satified with it each and every year you are there. The cooks are just great at it and I don't think there was ever once I was disapointed with something I ate.
