5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My courses where I just started are easy going and not hard where i did attend a different college there not hitting me with alot of classes all at once and are very very easy. I like how they do that and don't overwhelm you with alot of courses its very beneficial. The professors are wonderful instructors like i said in the review before there great people they are willing to help and answer any questions on the way. They class size isn't too big to me and honestly should be a little bigger but thats my preference. You get a variety of courses but i chose the one that i really wanted to pursue and have the passion for.

Overall Experience: In the beginning, I was a nervous wreck and scared. However, all employees have been excellent and extremely accommodating. They make this online venture a welcome choice. One that I look forward to everyday.

Overall Experience: The students at Ashford are very friendly, encouraging and positive feedback they say on anything that you post. They are amazing students easy to get along with and easy to just communicate and ask plenty of questions. The employers on campus are just great staff willing to work with students and want them to succeed and graduate throughout there years there at school or even online. My advisors does his best to do everything possible makes me believe they care and are great people. My instructor as well i can ask questions and she responds back you work and just says positive feedback. The online college is great even though I can interact face to face with students or see my advisor/instructor but I love the aspect of everything behind it you can take your time on your work and ask plenty of questions get help if needed from your peers. I love the school its a great choice i chose for myself.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: My specific major i chose, i already knew in high school that I loved children. But i did attend beauty school and didn't get to reach my goal I've always wanted too do now i am beginning my passion and knowledge of children and very eager and excited to learn and continue my education and down the road graduate with associate degree in early childhood education. The uniqueness of my degree is its learning and acknowledging the fundamental of a child and learning more in dept about how to teach children and seeing their education increase throughout young years. After I do graduate I will be opening myself up and finding future jobs that pertain to my degree and further on getting my bachelors degree.

Overview

After I graduated high school I have always known I wanted to continue my education. I didn't know what i wanted too do but I finally realized I love children and have the passion and courage for children. I will have plenty of support along the way for a better future of mine.

I chose to need a scholarship because I am in college and don't wanna be in dept. Always needed help is a privileged but i believe you have to truly want it. I am currently attending Ashford University to get my associate degree in early child education. I have the passion and dedicated to teach children, I wanna acknowledge children and learn how children learn and difficulties children face. My overall experience at Ashford is awesome they are such wonderful people they help in so many ways and make sure my education is succeeding everyday. The advisers and instructors are such incredibly staff, if you needed any questions they are there to answer anything along the way. My peers at Ashford are also nice and professional students they motivate you with some of the comment they say on your response. My school is unique because they are just overall a wonderful enthusiastic school and keeps motivated to do good in school.

If I chose a different school i think i wouldn't be as happy, this was the best decision to choose them because I believe if i chose any one else i wouldn't be as satisfied, I am so happy i chose this school over any other school the instructor and advisors are just so great.

Overall Experience: I take online courses. I have not viewed the campus.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The work here is not that heavy. At my other schools, I took my time and turned in valuable work but had to keep up with reading chapters ahead of time to get done. The jobs were available, just had to make time to work.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love that the teachers check on their students when they are getting behind on their work. They call and check upon them when things need to be submitted for processing . Emails are sent out from the teachers as a welcome letter.

Academic Flexibility: I really did not have any issues. The school is prompt with letting me know what has to be done and what is needed for scheduling and what I needed for FASFA. Any delay was on my doing.

Online Courses: I usually need a hands on type learning environment but I have had a really easy time since the interaction between the students online is easy, asking questions and helpful tools. Even though I am not able to personally meet my peer we do an introduction at the start of each class to get to know each other and respond so we get acquainted.

Overall Experience: I love this school! I have learned so many great tools to succeed in my career choice. The only thing I would say is that the timing in which an instructor returns a message is a little slow. If I have a question about an assignment I sometimes do not get a reply until after the fact. Although the instructors are excellent at responding to discussion comments.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Ashford University provides a great learning experience in a very unique environment. If you ask online Ashford students if they're happy with their choice to attend school there, most would probably say that they would do it all over again if they could, mainly because of its flexibility and convenience with schedules. The instructors are helpful and respond to questions in a timely manner, usually within one to two days. The instructors are helpful and encourage students to constantly look for better answers. Online classes are very convenient to students with complicated schedules; students can complete assignments at their own leisure, yet within the time constraints of deadlines. Most students find no problem completing their assignments.

A drawback of being an online student is that you don't have the opportunity to really check out the organizations or physical resources Ashford offers. However, the University does have an online library that students can go into from the Student Portal. The library is easy to use, and students can usually find most of the sources they need when writing a research paper. Even though it isn't your typical college interaction, the instructors and classmates are friendly and very helpful when you have questions. Students are able to help each other in unique ways. In one case, a student didn't have her book for class yet, and another student was able to scan a copy of the assignment and e-mail an attachment to her. Classmates are also helpful in post discussions and give each other timely advice and wisdom.
