4 College Sophomore

Parking: The permit cost is low and you can always find a place to park.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: i wouldnt really know im commuter and not on campus much.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Ashland has many places to live, some just arent as nice as others.

4 College Junior

Majors: I didn't find the application program hard but there are some essays I had to write. I also had an interview, which is a part of the applicaiton process for counseling students. Overall, it was doable.

Weather: well... I'm not sure how the weather affects my campus experience... I drive to their Columbus center... probably snow or rain might affect my driving but that doesn't happen as often (which is inconsistent to popular expectation about Ohio weather)

4 College Junior

Majors: 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.

4 College Junior

Majors: 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!

4 College Freshman

Majors: 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!

3 College Freshman

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.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: 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.

3 College Freshman

Weather: 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

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: 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.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: 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.

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.
