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

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.

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

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

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!

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

I would tell incomming college students to visit as many schools as possible and to choose the school that you feel is the beset for you. Never base a college choice by where your friends or significant other is going. It is essential to chose a school that you feel you can see yourself being happy at for numerous years down the road. Partying, drinking, and social events will come and go. However, a great education will stay with you forever.

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?

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 .
