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.

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

Finding the right college is much easier than people think. Try not to get too stressed over the decision-making process. The college you should be at is the one that feels like home when you're there. No matter where you go, there will be ups and downs, great people and merely okay people, excellent professors and ones with whom you do not get along. Remember that college is a learning experience, both in terms of academics and in terms of life lessons. You learn who you are and who you want to become when you are in college. To make the most of the experience, try to stay positive, and surround yourself with people who are happy, fun, and can make the most of anything.

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

Ashland was a small school, which was both a blessing and a curse--you get a better sense of community there, but sometimes it feels like a small bubble. But I really enjoyed the school regardless.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person interested in a community, excellent professors, good friends, and someone who can make their own fun.

Jessica

Ashland is a small conservative bubble that ignores the realities of real life after graduation.

Visit your college before hand andspend a weekend or two there. You never really know how the school is until you stay for a lil while. Meet the teachers in your major study area and if they are not a professional in the community then look elsewhere. Make sure your surrounding environment matches your wishes because you will get depressed if you feel in a foregin land with no friends. Research scholarships far in advance, evven if its a small monetaryamount, remember it all adds up. The debt you will have after graduation is great so make sureyour career center is amazing, otherwiseyou'll be unemployed, angry, and in debt.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A conservative, non experimental individual who wants to be a teacher for judeao christian kids growing up in the boondocks.

My classmates make the classes fun. Together, as a class, we engage in intellectually stimulating conversations that neither I nor the teacher may have provoked.

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

College is all about what you make of it. Regardless of the school, you have to dive in head first! Join something a club in college that you were in in high school, or try something you always wanted to do. College is all about finding out who you are and to do that successfully, you need to take chances and make mistakes. Some things you try you will love and continue all 4 years and others you will quit by spring, but the point is you got involved, and hopfully gained some knowledge and a friend. This is the easiest way to assimilate to college and the easiest way to make friends. College doesn't last forever, so make the most of it from day one!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It's hard coming into Ashland and being a Agnostic Democrat. It's good to be different, so don't be discouraged. Instead, own it! Join Young Democrats and get involved. There are more of us here than you think!
