3 College Junior

Transportation: Walking is the main way students transport around campus, but if you want to venture off campus, a car is the only option.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining hall is the best thing Ashland has. Convo has great menus full of variety and value for your price. You can use your own money, a meal plan, or credit/debit card. I don't think the cost for meals is unreasonable considering the quality.

Health & Safety: Campus crime does not happen often. I personally feel safe on campus. Special security measures are taken when needed. Safety services is really helpful and there when you need them, but not overbearing.

Campus Strictness: There are not many academic restrictions that are different or more strict than most universities. The social life is more restricted if you live on campus as oppose to off campus, but that comes with paying to live at the university.

Off-Campus Dining: The cost is typical for a college town. There are many fast food options that are convenience. Student discounts are excellent! There are even discounts to stores and not just dining.

Drug Safety: I have never experienced peer pressure. The policy enforcement is strict, but I have heard students getting away with it without enforcement knowing. Drug and alcohol is only visible if you live on campus.

Computers: The computer labs are numerous, spacious, and have many computers. The printing on campus can be expensive, but it is no more expensive than home printing of school work. The network speed and reliability is great. The only time I have ever seen it crash is during crunch times, such as finals. The wireless access is great and I connect to it daily. The need for a personal computer depends upon your major, if you are taking an online course, and if you find it more convenient.

Guys & Girls: The people at Ashland University are friendly. Majority are hardworking and know that paying so much tuition requires so much work. I feel respected by all I encounter and I think the atmosphere shines in socialization.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Parties at Ashland are okay, if you are into that sort of thing. I have not attended more than one party at Ashland, but I hear that most people enjoy them.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The proximity to campus and options of off campus living depend upon if you stay in Ashland. I commute from a different city about 20 minutes away. This off-campus living has been great for me because it is less costly than living on campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on Ashland's campus, but I think the social atmosphere of AU is really great. During my first year, everyone was so helpful about finding classes, scheduling, and other problems that arose.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love how small my school is! I get that one on one attention from my professors. The president of this school knows almost everyone by name, which I think is pretty cool! When you come for freshman orientation, you get his phone number. I love being a part of the Greek community here on campus. It helped me get involved and gain a ton of new friends! If I had to choose again what school I would want to go to, it would still be Ashland University!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a lot of varsity athletic teams that many students go tot he games to cheer on our team.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Ashland doesn't allow students to live off campus till you are 22 years old. Unless you are in commuting distance then you can't live off campus.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The cost for a parking pass is $80 for the year and you get to choose the lot you want unless you are a freshman who didn't sign up for a lot. If you didn't sign up then you are left with what is still available. If you are caught paring in a lot that isn't your lot then you will get a $25 parking ticket.

5 College Freshman

Majors: You have to have a certain score to get into the College of Education and to get into your field experiences. The most important thing to keep in mind for admissions is to keep a 2.5 GPA and have at least an 18 on your ACT!

5 College Freshman

Majors: You get into the field your freshman year here at Ashland! We are known for our education program around the world. We have some of the best professors who were previously educators themselves.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: At Ashland, we all pretty much know everyone. It is a small campus so you will become great friends with almost everyone.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There isn't really anything around here. You have to go about 20 minutes to get to the nearest mall and other shopping. The closest thing to us is a Wal mart.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: No school is going to have the best on campus living, but we have great dorms and its always clean!

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: My school is a dry campus so you have to go out and look if you want to find a party.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is not much to do off-campus. There is a local area about 20 miles away where you can go to the movies and eat at restaurants, but that is about it.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug safety at Ashland is taken upon the student at themselves. If a student wants to get involved in that atmosphere then they could surely find a place. But if a person does not want anything to do with that environment then they won't be around it. Nobody forces another to partake in alcohol activities, but if a person is willing the opportunity is there. The policy is enforced strongly, if you're caught then you will face some form of punishment; a fine, court, time doing environment work etc.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is reasonable. There are many options of houses but the variety is all about the same. I'm sure they are a reasonable price but only students old enough can live off-campus. It would be more convenient for a college student to live off campus and not have to pay the fee for room and board which is incredibly expensive. Students have enough to pay while in school, why shouldn't they have the option of living off-campus and saving money, at whatever age they are.
