When touring the campus and speaking with my academic advisor I received plenty of information about the academics that are offered at Ashland University. I browsed the curriculum to discover all that Ashland University had to offer me. My high school counselor was very familiar with AU and also helped me to become acquainted with all the helpful programs setup by Ashland University to help incoming students make decisions about their academic program, special study options and degree possibilities. The registration process was painless and my Ashland University mentor was in constant contact with me by email and by phone during the entire process of checking out and enrolling into Ashland University for fall of 2013.

Ashland University is located in a small city and surrounded by rural area especially farms. There is not a whole lot to do in Ashland and there is no bus transportation system in the city. There are a few good restaurants within walking distance of Ashland University and there is active student activities sponsored by the college. Student organizations put on much in the way of social nightlife activities including parties.

I am a Hillsdale High School Senior that has just become accepted into Ashland University and the Nursing School Associated with Ashland University. I will start attending Ashland University fall of 2013. I have visited campus and am well satisfied with my education potential after speaking with several nursing students, administrators and teachers. I also was given the opportunity to job shadow with a nurse who is the wife of an Ashland University administrator through the college. The experience was very educational and allowed me to make my decision about what degree program (Nursing) I enrolled into for the upcoming fall semester.
All of the staff and administrators at Ashland University really care about the success of the students. During my tour I had the opportunity to really dig in and talk to a wide variety of students, teachers and administrators so that I could determine the level of academic expectations and success achieved by current students and was able to make a good decision regarding my potential there as a student starting this coming fall.

AU is a very diverse school with students from all over the world. Most of the students I've seen came over from China, but there are people from other places as well. Still, most of the students are white, but that's not really out of place for a small town college. The school is pretty open and accepting of LBGT students as well. Religion wise, the campus is predominately Christian, but the people here are pretty tolerant of other beliefs.

Ashland is in northern Ohio, so I didn't expect the weather to beautiful and balmy every day. The campus is beautiful in snow, rain or sun and there are many places out of the weather to hang out.

The dorm rooms are generally very good. The biggest problem is that the students do not take care of them so many are messy.
College Sophomore 2013-04-28T20:17:17Z
The campus has dozens of international students and is very diverse. There are kids from every background here. They come from different religions and countries. The LGBT community is also prominent.

The parking at Ashland University is very cheap and great. Parking permits are only $50, and the lots are arranged by housing. They are very good about getting the student a lot by his or her dorm. Overall, I was nicely surprised by the parking conditions when I moved in.

The Convocation Dining Hall is rated very high for their food quality. It is a buffet that is constantly changing. The hours are decent.
College Sophomore 2013-04-20T02:30:13Z
The professors are very caring with a small class size they tend to know you very well. This helps them understand you as a person and help guide you through your education.

The workload is intense being a Public Relations major. The atmosphere is highly competitive, however, it is worth the struggle. The cirriculum is well organized accompanied by fantastic facilities. The internships offered are endless. The program is a four year program with a liberal arts education.

Greek life participants are not kind to those who chose not to participate in Greek life. However, the campus events they assist in are excellent.

Most of the female dorms are the best on campus. They are newly updated and feel very homely. The co-ed dorms are very spacious, but are not as updated. The all male dorm is of poor quality compared to the other dorms on campus.

Nightlife is mostly for students who are over 21 as there is not many clubs/bars in the area for 18 and older. Some local house parties are common on the weekends and are good for all.

I've never seen/hear/experienced any kind of drug problem in Ashland. Seriously, it's pretty clean.
College Sophomore 2013-04-10T01:53:30Z
I love the diversity here at AU. It's just enough to feel exposed to the different aspects of the world but not enough to feel overwhelmed.

I'm not involved in Greek Life here at Ashland, but I hear that it's a rather beneficial organization. Lots of girl on my floor seem very satisfied with their sorority.

Everyone that is in need of a parking spot is given one. The spots can be far or near your dorm, depending on when you sign up for a permit. Tickets are moderately priced, but the enforcers are very accepting.
College Sophomore 2013-04-05T17:13:59Z
Greek life is very somall. Few people are involved. There are no sorority housing, and small fraternity housing. Greek life is involved in the community but is too small to make a huge difference.

The internet is most of the time is very good, but occasionally is shaky. The computer labs are 24 access, but take very long to log into. Prints and Copies cost money, but that is to be expected.
College Sophomore 2013-03-18T15:42:01Z
There are many just in walking distance! There is a Burger King right by a few dorm halls and there is a Buffalo Wild Wing that a lot of people like going to. Right down Claremont there is a Taco Bell, East of Chicago, and Domino's pizza will deliver to any dorm hall. Its really nice because all you have to tell them what hall your in and they know exactly where to take it. This make is easy to get food when both the dinning hall and The Eagles Nest are closed.

At Ashland there really isn't any "nightlife". There are a few bars down town but it would take more that 5 minutes to walk there. There really isn't much to walk to so you always have find someone with a car, who is also willing to drive to Mansfield or Wooster. This is very hard because not many people on campus are willing to drive that far.
College Senior 2013-03-15T01:50:45Z
Ashland itself is a bit of a dying town. The big draws for students to get off campus are places such as Mansfield, Columbus, and Cleveland. The locals are very nice, however, and there is a fairly large fair in the fall that most students go to. They have a few restaurants and Ashland, but nothing to do beyond that. The campus is the main place where students spend their time.

Ashland does not allow off-campus housing unless you are 23, married, or a convict. Some people try to sneak around this, but you can rack up large fines if the university "finds you". The on-campus housing is not bad, especially with senior apartments being an option.

Health & Safety:
The campus is really safe- I think it is actually rated one of the safest in the state, if not in the nation. Safety Services is a constant prescence- almost too much of a presence sometimes. The biggest violation on campus is probably visitation, since boys/girls are not allowed in each others dorm rooms after 2 am. This is also a "damp" campus, with only beer/wine allowed in the senior apartments. As far as walking around and leaving doors unlocked, however, there is really not a safer university to attend.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
