5 College Sophomore

Student Body: I am a online student so I have only talked to my classmates online, but they seem very nice.

Student Body: Considering I am online learning only, I can only respond to the interaction I have had with students via discussion posts or emails over the last year. Reading some of the discussion posts, I feel that most of the students are well educated. There is also a lot of diversity in the classroom ,and everyone has a different aspect of knowledge to provide. I enjoy reading their posts, and hearing what they have to add to my discussions.

I also appreciate that Ashford took the necessary steps to reprimand a student who plagiarized one of my discussion posts and claimed for his own. Although I do still see that student included in classes, however I haven't had any more difficulties with that

Student Body: The students at Ashford University encompass a wide range of diversity in areas such as education, age, geographic areas, cultures and professions and goals. There are brand new students right out of high school on up to people in their 50's. In my observation, many students who attend on line classes have families, other employment and are looking to either change their profession or get a degree in the one they are already in.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Ashford appears to have students from all different ethnicities, and everyone seems to get along well, accepting other students for who they are. Most students at Ashford are more career-oriented than typical college campuses, but they have personalities like any other student—creative or artsy, friendly, fun, geeky, hardworking, smart, and outgoing.

School organizations at Ashford's brick and mortar campus include fraternities and sororities, and sports like basketball, football, and soccer. However, for students who attend Ashford online, very few really know anything about any of these organizations. For students who attend Ashford's physical campus, students say that there is a lot of interaction in the classroom, where the students hang out, study together, and participate in clubs. However, 99 percent of Ashford's students are attending school online, so the students who attend Ashford's actual campus usually are there to learn and then go home.
