Student Body: All students I come in contact with are online. To me, this is great because you are still able to "interact" with students and learn about them.

Student Body: II love my student body because of how diverse the campus. You may have a finance manage working in the business for 30 years in the class with a student who just graduated from a four year institution.

Student Body: My peers have shown a great interest in our academic studies. We come from all walks of life. It's amazing to see how different the perspectives can be depending on our life experiences. Each of us bring to the table a fresh set of eyes and new revelations to help each other learn. I hope to be able to make friends and study partners will attending online school.

Student Body: Since Ashford University is an online school, I do not have much one-on-one interaction with them. My classmates and I do participate in weekly discussion questions. This gives us the opportunity to chat, debate, and interact. I have actually became closer to my classmates.

Ashford appears to have students from all different ethnicities, and everyone seems to get along well, accepting other students for who they are. Most students at Ashford are more career-oriented than typical college campuses, but they have personalities like any other student—creative or artsy, friendly, fun, geeky, hardworking, smart, and outgoing.

School organizations at Ashford's brick and mortar campus include fraternities and sororities, and sports like basketball, football, and soccer. However, for students who attend Ashford online, very few really know anything about any of these organizations. For students who attend Ashford's physical campus, students say that there is a lot of interaction in the classroom, where the students hang out, study together, and participate in clubs. However, 99 percent of Ashford's students are attending school online, so the students who attend Ashford's actual campus usually are there to learn and then go home.
