Athletics here at Ashland are a big part of campus life and where the school gets a lot of its funding. I think the football team is the most recognized because they have gone very far in championships a couple times since I've been here. The team is very big and the stands are always packed at the home games. The Rec center is amazing! They have an indoor track, and indoor field, two or three basketball courts, a competitive sized swim pool and diving well, plus the full gym and entertainment/ game areas.

The class sizes are great! One of the best part about Ashland is the professors know you by name. I have had some great professors but, also some not so great. They are great in their area and very smart but, some professors do not know how to relay that information very well and just read right off of their PowerPoints. Also some professors push their views on you which is okay but, if they disagree with you then your grade is well affected.

I love Ashland! The small campus makes it feel at home and it is so clear that all of the professors care deeply about you. I have loved getting involved in religious life, as well as several other organizations on campus. Ashland is truly a great place to be.
