I am a nursing major and the work load is heavier than any other major offered at Ashland. We are the only major not currently required to also have a minor. (so we are told) We have a very heavy workload. Our classes generally have a class, a lab, and a clinical so we have 3 times the studying to do. The facilities are Amazing!!!! We have a state of the art Simulation lab. With new simulation mannequins that can do everything from blink, vomit, talk, sweat, give birth, seize, etc. We have great clinical locations and opportunities. Our clinical instructors are very knowledgeable and experienced in the fields they are teaching.

Guys & Girls:
The students are your typical "traditional" college students. Some come dressed up, others show up in their pajamas. The majority of the students are your "traditional" right out of high school group. With the addition of the Nursing college there is a few more of the "non-traditional" (older, out of high school) students.

Ashland University Dwight Schar College of Nursing has an amazing state of the Art Simulation Lab that is just fantastic. The clinical faculty are great and are amazing teachers they are great at hands on learning. As with any school you have some classes that you love the professors and some that you wish you had someone else but overall it has been a positive experience. The nursing workload is heavier than any other program Ashland has to offer. We do have amazing mission trips!

Off Campus Housing at Ashland is irrelevant mostly because most students are "traditional college students" and campus policy requires them to reside in the dorms unless they live within so many miles of the school. However, being a "non-traditional" student, (married with kids) it was not likely for me to live in the dorms with me kids. So I did have my own home and commuted to the college.

I am enrolled at Ashland University majoring in Education administration towards my Master's. I am extremely satisfied with my educational experience this far in the program. I feel the professors I have encountered have been of the highest quality in professionalism and related experience. I look forward to each new class experience.
College Junior 2013-07-07T19:23:06Z
I am totally loving my experience at Ashland University. I feel the class sizes are perfect. The professors are always more than willing to answer questions and help. The assignments are appropriate in achieving great thought and learning experience without a lot of busy work.

They are pretty good but it can be a hassle when it comes to getting into some of the majors like nursing
College Sophomore 2013-06-29T17:58:26Z
I suggests getting a car or finding someone who has one.
College Sophomore 2013-06-29T17:57:27Z
There are multiple places around the campus to get access to computers when needed.
College Sophomore 2013-06-29T17:56:28Z
Its fun during football season but as that dies down it can get pretty boring AU is a dry campus.
College Sophomore 2013-06-29T17:55:21Z
The class rooms are smaller which gives you a good advantage to work with profs most nursing clases are hard and you have to pass with a C+ or you will have to retake the class.
College Sophomore 2013-06-29T17:53:06Z
Since AU is a small campus getting to parking is a 5-7 walk depending where you are I don't have a car but its highly recommended

It is mostly white community but they are working to make it diverse with international students everyone is friendly for the most part.
College Sophomore 2013-06-29T17:46:32Z
Ashland is a pretty family oriented place to live its a small religous town but everyone is very friendly.
College Sophomore 2013-06-29T17:45:09Z
There are a couple of places to eat but there are varieties of foods to choose from and for the most part everything is pretty good.
College Senior 2013-06-24T16:58:23Z
We have a Walmart. Ha! There is a mall about 20 minutes away. If you're willing to drive a little bit longer, there is another (nicer and bigger) mall about an hour and a half away.
College Senior 2013-06-24T16:52:53Z
I'm not much of a social butterfly, but I do know that AU has quite a few campus activities that CAB puts on. Just this past year, Andy Grammer came. That was pretty awesome!
College Senior 2013-06-24T16:50:21Z
One of my favorite parts about Ashland University is that the students are usually very friendly. Very rarely do you walk by someone who isn't smiling at you. I like that!
We have a great Rec Center, and some of the building are very nice. Unfortunately, the building I spend the most of my time in (because of my major) isn't as nice as the other buildings.
College Senior 2013-06-24T16:44:53Z
From my experience, the professors are always willing to talk to students and help them along the way. I've always been able to ask my professors to read over papers/assignments before turning them for a grade. They usually give great feedback.
College Senior 2013-06-07T23:19:57Z
I attend the Columbus Center and we always have lot of places to park and close to the building!!
College Senior 2013-06-07T23:18:30Z
I think that we as a University accept all students. You will always have those who feel like an outcast or those that simply never feel like they fit in.
College Senior 2013-06-07T23:16:00Z
I attend the Columbus Center and I have a family so I do NOT go out to the nightlife.
College Senior 2013-06-07T23:14:31Z
The first year I received what I needed but it was a hassle to get. Now they are telling me I am maxed out and not giving me much to go on except, try a private loan.

Because Ashland University is a residential University all full time students (12 or more credit hours per semester are required to live in University housing unless they have a pressing reason for an exception (like having a family) or that they live within 35 miles of the campus. Students living within 35 miles of campus are allowed to live at home. Because I live in a village that is within 35 miles of the college campus I am living at home while attending Ashland University. Students that do live off campus can easily find housing because the nearby residents and landlords are very used to Ashland University students looking for housing opportunities with many sharing their homes with students and earning money that way. The people of Ashland are friendly and very supportive of the students going to Ashland University. There is lots of street parking and plenty of off-campus housing opportunities within walking distance of the campus. Ashland is a safe area and housing costs are pretty typical of a small city.

The fall weather is cool and can get really cold by November. The winters are very cold and about average snow fall. The campus staff are excellent at keeping sidewalks clear of snow so walking around campus in the winter is no problem. The weather can be unpredictable so having a weather app on your smartphone is a good idea so you can be prepared for any sudden weather changes.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
