I'm planning to do an internship as part of the curriculum. I don't have concerns about finding an internship--we have many graduates, professors, counselors to talk to.
College Senior 2012-12-20T02:18:04Z
I like my program. I think they prepare us well. It's just that I'm not taking the classes at the pace they lay out the curriculum--I'm going at a slower rate so that I won't rush through what I'm learning from the program!

I plan to go into the Nursing Program its hard to get into the program but once you are admitted it's worth it. The Nursing Campus in Mansfield is really nice!

Health & Safety:
The campus small but beautiful and I never feel unsafe. There isn't really much to do unless you're into sports its a dry campus but the acedemic setting is superior. It's very expensive to attend but they are very helpful with the process the majority of the people a nice. It's not that diverse 97 percent of the students are caucasian. So being a minority coming here was a culture shock but I'm slowly adapting. More than half of the incoming students transferr because of how conserved the University is.

AShland will not allow you to live off campus until your at the agte of 22 or older. As far as availability goes there are some housing options that are fairly close to campus with a cheap cost. There is good parking the landlords are generally nice people and easy to work with, safety is also not an issue there always patrol cars out slightly near off campus residents houses.

The weather is a little difficult to perdict on campus. Some days its really nice then gets really cold or rains for three days. However if you have a warm jacket some boots and an umbrella you will have no problem living on campus or making it to your classes across campus
College Sophomore 2012-11-23T17:34:02Z
There are alot of places to eat around the campus but some other attractions include the fairgrounds, dog shelters, bars and Wal mart. Everyone goes to Wal mart to hangout because there is not too much to do all week.
College Sophomore 2012-11-23T17:30:01Z
There are mnay places for students to eat off campus that are also in reasonable distance. Some dining places are right across the street or just a few minustes away. Resturaunts such as Burger King and Arbys give students discounts on there meals up to 15%. All you have to do is tell them your a student at Ashland univerrsity and show the cashier your student ID.

Cost for parking permit very reasonable. Lot is a short distance to walk but not too bad. Closer lot was full. Nice to have access to a car when you want to go somewhere but it really isn;t needed most of the time. No problem finding a space when needed.

Athletics are good, but every team stays secluded and doesnt get involved with people outside their team.
College Sophomore 2012-10-15T19:26:15Z
The computer are all very high-tech and easily accessible. Each student gets 500 prints on school computers per semester which proves to be more than enough. The network works pretty well, atleast I haven't had any problems. Overall, I am very happy with it.

Guys & Girls:
Ashland is a very diverse school for being so small. I walk around campus and see a ton of good-looking people. There is someone here for everyone and anyone.
College Sophomore 2012-10-15T19:19:12Z
Ashland is a small town. Many of the houses around campus are small, and there are alot of run-down houses that are abandoned. The off-campus housing just doesn't appeal to me.

Great for Education Majors – Ashland University is a great school for education majors. The school has new facilities and equipment in the education department. Also, because the school is focused on Education there are many amazing opportunists to get real life experience like student teaching abroad.
College Senior 2012-09-19T17:44:54Z
Football and basketball are very important on campus. Others get over looked.
College Senior 2012-09-19T17:39:40Z
There are quite a few rules on campus mostly pertaining to alcohol and visitation policy, but it is not usually an issues. Ra's and other staff members are very tolerant.

Great School but Room for Improvement – Ashland is a wonderful school and I loved going there. Their food options are great and so are the activities that are scheduled to take place there. My only complaint is with the outdated dorms and age required to live off of campus. Ashland currently allows students 22 years or older to move off campus, which is almost impossible if you are a traditional student. I'm in my senior year of college, at 21. Living off campus would be way more affordable, in my case.

Better Dorms and More Scholarships – Coming up with the money to afford this university is very difficult for students to do. I have come from a low socioeconomic family that has even declared bankruptcy. For this reason, making more scholarships available to the students would be extremely helpful. Also, if I am paying this much money for college, I would expect that the dorms would be up to standards. Some of the dorms are in great need of updating, especially the bathrooms.

Drinking Off Campus – Students at the college drink off campus at the local bars more often than not. This is when most of the trouble occurs, such as fights and arguments. The school should also set up more blue lights around campus so that safety services can be reached in case of an emergency.

Something for Everyone – There are many different activities on campus that everyone is sure to find something they love. Each department has opportunities for students of that major. Each major has their own clubs as well as internship, student teaching, and field experience opportunities. There are clubs for other things beyond majors, such as Human Trafficking Awareness Group, CAB, Political Parties, PAW (for animal livers), Colleges Against Cancer, and Religious Groups. There are both fraternities and sororities on campus, though very popular with the students not everyone joins. Those not in either still participate in the events put on by the individual chapters. There are varsity, club, and intramural sports. At the rec center you can workout, swim, play on the courts, rock climb, practice your golf swing, play pool or ping pong, take classes, rent movies, or get a smoothie and snack at the smoothie bar. Besides having the option to eat at the rec center, students can eat at the Eagle's Nest or Convo, all are great choices. Convo is buffet style and Eagle's Nest is great for those on the go or if they are meeting others to work on a project or study. Many students spend hours in the library on campus. With eight floors there is plenty of space to be in a quiet space by yourself or to go with a group of friends to study together. Besides sports and studying Campus life put on fun events all year long. This includes movie on the quad, concerts, dances, Springfest, and other free events on the quad.

I Rather Like It – The professors and learning environment as well as the housing are phenomenal. The people need a little work, but over all its a beautiful place to be.
College Junior 2012-07-27T18:28:35Z
It's Almost All the Same! Pretty much everyone is similar. We do have international students, but a lot of the people there are a little mean to those who are different or have different beliefs than themselves. The school also won't even have a club that will support the gay community. Its ridiculous.
College Junior 2012-07-27T18:24:26Z
Well I Don't Associate With Them Much – I don't really know much about Greek life. I know we have about five chapters who do a lot of good for out school though. They are very welcoming into their houses though.

Always Room for Improvement – I came to Ashland University with my best friend. Although I have enjoyed my time at the University with the sports, activities, people, and classes there have been some unfortunate occasions that have occurred. Freshman year my best friend and I were supposed to room together but Res Life put us in different dorm halls. Nearly the same room number 321 and 320 just different halls. That same school year the rooms on my floor had bed bugs. Sophomore year there were problems with my work study. I had the job, went through the training, and then I was told I no longer qualified to have the job. Junior year there were problems with my financial aid and my financial adviser hasn't been the friendliest. However, my academic adviser is amazing and I am so glad I decided to change to him this year. My other academic adviser wasn't very personable but with my busy schedule it helped scheduling for classes easy. Although there have been the occasional problems at the beginning of each year it hasn't kept me from making great memories and having the opportunity to have such a great internship. The professors that I have had in the Criminal Justice Department and Political Science Department are absolutely amazing and always there to help whenever with whatever you may need.

I Didn't Know I Lived in a Library! The Residence Life at Asland University can be very stern. Residence Assistances can get very mean and unfair. Quiet hours in residence halls usually start around 12AM, which is some what ridiculous on a college campus. If you are caught talking too loud, everyone in the room can get written up. If this happens, a fine will have to be paid by each "violator" and each person will get an offense. If you get three offenses, you can get kicked out of the University! So all in all, you're better off talking in the library past quiet hours!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
