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.

Ashland University has great education classes. They are very helpful in preparing myself and other aspiring teachers to work in the field after graduation. Ashland has several fun activities, however, it is somewhat secluded. It can be hard to find new things to do. Mansfield, the nearest city, is 30 minutes away by car. With an active imagination, it is possible to entertain oneself when all the studying is completed.
