4 College Sophomore

Student Body: My peers are from all around the country and world. Many are enlisted in the military many are already working professionals trying to enter different fields and some are fresh out of high school. For the most part you learn as much from school as you do from your peers. I think Ashford does a good job feeding my mind new and fresh content. And each class either furthers your knowledge on the subject taught in your prior class or teaches you something entirely different!

3 College Junior

Student Body: The students at my school are at most average. I don't speak or socialize them much unless it is necessary for my grade, and I assume that goes the same for the rest of my classmates. We're all mostly in the same boat, so to speak. Most of seem to be very similar as far as religion, economics, etc. go.

Student Body: I was an online student so unless someone comes out and tells us their race, color, etc., we do not know and it would not matter, we all are there for an education.

4 College Senior

Student Body: A lot of my class room students/peers in pretty much all my courses some of them came from other background cultures

and ethnic groups, a lot of them are religious, the political they know their political rights and wrongs, and yet from the economic stand point everyone trying to make a good change in their life by going back to school for a better long term career goal. Over the Student Body of Ashford University I see has been excellent!

Thank you!

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

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.
