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

Find a college that you feel comfortable at when visiting, not nervous. Also look for one with strong programs in the area you are interested.

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

I never liked the assignment of advisors. My advisor as well as some of my friend's advisors were not in the same concentration as the student. My advisor helped as best he could but some things he couldn't help with. I am also very disappointed in the lack of assistance after graduation, even where there's the possibility for additional courses.

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

It is very focused for future educators. Very strong education program.

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

When selecting a college, don't rush your choice. Explore the campus, see what it has to offer, and the main objective is find a school that will give you the education and career oppurtunities you are striving for. When you get to college, get involved. Join clubs and groups to meet new people and socialize. The main thing is find what fits you and will make you happy so that the next four years of your life can be memorable. To build a foundation for your future you need something solid to start with and picking the school that is right for you is the first step.

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

visit the college and make sure that you will fit in with the surrounding. Sit in on a class and see if you like how the teacher teaches or lectures the class. Visit the dining service it is easy to see how people enteract in this area and how friendly people are or if most are rich little stuck up kids.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the amount of updated tech nology and ideas and teachings offered. Everything on this campus is state-of-the-art so we are using software and tech that is up to date with most offered in the real world. Very effective when trying to find a job that we know these items and are being taught them effectively by our professors.

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

the overall atmosphere and the amount of presssure that would have came with attending college at Ashland University, I dont if there would have been as much if I had gone to a smaller or less pricey organization.

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

I would tell them to look a little out of their comfort zone. I chose a small school because thats what I was used to. Althought I enjoy the small university I chose and have recieved research oppertunities I would not of recieved at a larger institution, small schools tend to lack school spirit and other social experiences I feel I missed out on. Also, sit in on a class, it really gives you a feel if you would be comfortable to learn there or not.

What's unique about your campus?

Small class size because you can really interact with the professors and learn .

Make sure it is a place that you feel you will fit into. It will become your home for the next four years, if you don't like something about then don't go there! You'll find where you belong, and once you do, you will know it! I believe the key to making the most out of your experience at school is taking one day at a time and enjoying the time you spend there. While it may seem like such a pain at times, I guarantee that all the homework and testing is worth it. Once you do begin school make sure to cherish it, it goes by so incredibly fast. You will wonder where it went, but you will have some amazing friends and memories that will last a life time.

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

The food was great. I believe the cafeteria was ranked number one out of any school in the country for several years. It is also an extremely friendly place. I met some of the best friends of my life at Ashland University.

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

Ashland University is a smallish school nestled in a small town surrounded by Amish people, with convenient shops and stores that every college student needs, great restaurants in walking distance (although a spectacular dining hall is available on-campus), and the President of the University is a delightful fellow who knows everyone's name.

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

Focus in on what YOU need (both as a parent and as a prospective student) and make your decision that way. Money will come around somehow; I don't know of many colleges that do not offer substantial financial aid to each one of their students that requires it. Never let some fast-talking college representative try to swindle you into coming because they have a brand new sidewalk somewhere, and it's basically the talk of that town. Have a plan in mind of what you want your college experience to be, and decide based on what you want for YOUR future and YOUR goals; don't tailor yourself to what the University offers. That should be their job.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the small class sizes; it allows the professors to focus on you as an individual rather than a student ID number.

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

To get the most out of college, students must find the right college for them. You can't figure out which school is the right school without actually experiencing several different schools. The most helpful thing is to visit schools and stay the night with a student. Visiting a school and taking a planned out tour with your parents really doesn't do anything that you can't get from reading and looking at a picture in a school's literature. Spend real time at the school with a real student and you will get a real picture of what a school will be like.

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

The cost. A lot of financial aid is given to incoming freshmen but a lot of it is only for students' first year. A few scholarships are available to only upperclassmen, but not many. Although the small classes were great, the massive amount of debt I am now facing is not. I think I would have been okay with slightly larger classes so that I would now have a lot less debt.
