4 College Freshman

Parking: 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.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are good, but every team stays secluded and doesnt get involved with people outside their team.

5 College Freshman

Computers: 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.

4 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: 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.

5 College Junior

Academics: 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.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Football and basketball are very important on campus. Others get over looked.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: 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.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: 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 My only complaint is with the outdated dorms and age required to live off of campus.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.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: 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.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: 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.

4 College Senior

Facilities: 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.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: 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.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: 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.

3 College Senior

Academics: 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.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: 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!

5 College Junior

Academics: High Success Rate for State License Exam – My school, Ashland Theological Seminary prepared their students in Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling so well that 89% of them pass the State Licence Exam at the first time, which is a couple of percentage points higher than the national average.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Well Managed – Overall, when I was walking around the main campus in Ashland, I felt really good because the campus was kept very clean and I could see that they were managing the grass, flowers, and trees well. I also like Ashland University Columbus Center, where I will be studying starting from this Fall. The building is small but it gives enough academic atmosphere and it is kept clean.

4 College Junior

Parking: I Found It Good. I visited the school only once for an interview, and I was able to find a spot for street parking right away. The parking did not seem to be a problem, but it was during summer break, which probably made this difference.

College Junior

Facilities: Yet to Experience – I am accepted by Ashland Theological Seminary which is connected to Ashland University, but I will not start school till this Fall. I visited the campus only once when for an interview. So, as much as I would like to share my opinion, I do not have enough knowledge about the school yet.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drinking Allowed in Designated Areas – Ashland is a dry campus, but in our senior apartments they permit the consumption of alcohol if all roommates in the same room are over the age of 21. I think this is very fair, and if caught outside the safe zones and/or underage the school takes very appropriate actions.

5 College Senior

Transportation: Ashland is a very small campus, so public transportation is not needed, but they do provide a great service of having a bus come by throughout the week to take students who do not have car options to the local Wal-Mart which is located four miles from the school itself.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Cars Are Best Option – They have one bus that will take you to Walmart everyday at 3 for $3 to and from. If you have a car on campus its is the best option because you can go at any time.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You can not live off campus which is annonying. Some of the dorms are okay they were recently remodeled but they still have a lot to go before all the dorms are nice.
