4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: This is a very beautiful area, lots of parks and places to canoe and hike nearby

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love going to a college in a small town even though it sometimes has it's dull moments.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Ashland is a beautiful little town that attracts many tourists for weekend getaways. Since we are right on Lake Superior, there is great natural areas readily available to students.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The locals around Ashland are very friendly and really easy to get along with. I love living next to Lake Superior and my professor even got me interesting in fishing!

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: That's an interesting one. People around here are very friendly, you just have to get into circles where you can meet them. Ashland at first glance is rough around the edges, but people here open up quickly and want to take you under their wing. Or ride their horses. Or play piano in their church.

In a larger context, I absolutely love Washburn, which is the next town over. I would love to live there one summer!
