4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students are very friendly. Their fashion is very country-ish.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The town surrounding the school in the immediate area is very small. But, I like the small town feel. Its what I preferred in my college search: a small College in a small town, that wasn't my hometown.

But, I'm not out in the middle of nowhere. Either an hour north or and hour south, are big cities with tons of things to do. I've been to art museums, symphonies, plays, concerts, etc.

The shopping also requires a little bit of a drive, but the bargains are worth it. It has a great shopping scene.

5 College Freshman

Majors: To be in the Ashbrook Program, you are completely immersed in a History and Political Science environment. I absolutely love it. As a major history nerd myself, I love being able to talk to people around me about the things I love so much. This was something I couldn't really do before; every usually thought I was crazy.

The workload is very rigorous. It's not so much that there are a tone of things to do but little time (although there is an element of that), its the things that we do. We don't use textbooks. We use primary sources. So instead of reading about some's thoughts on Aristotle, we read Aristotle ourselves and discuss it in class together. The Professors are amazing and actually care about the students. The facilities are wonderful. We have a whole floor of the library to ourselves that we can stay in for as long as we want. The internships/ job opportunities are abundant. Almost all of the sophomores last summer had summer interns at places lie Washington D.C.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Freshman are required to have an unlimited meal plan at Convo. You can't eat at the Eagle's Nest until your sophomore year. Overall, the food is nationally ranked but you tired of it after awhile when its your only option as a freshman.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Since they lowered the tuition $10,000 it is harder to get scholarships. I received $8,000 for my GPA and ACT and I qualified for $5,000 in loans from the FAFSA.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I had no problems with the application process and admissions got back to me within a few weeks. I am told that my major in particular (Digital Media Production and Journalism) has more freshman than it has ever had before.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Right now, I believe the policy is that you have to be 22 or married to live off-campus. Most students just live on campus all four years.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: During orientation, I was told that when looking for a job after graduation, employers will put applicants who graduated from AU into a separate pile because they believe the education and school is very good.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are very personable and create a great atmosphere for students.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life positively affects the social atmosphere of campus because all Greek chapters do great things both on and off campus. We better the community as a whole and are super fun to be around. Greeks are viewed indifferently by non-Greeks, some non-Greeks frown upon Greek life (like athletes) and some bash it because they simply do not understand it.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: We aren't even allowed to live off campus unless we're over 22.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in a sorority because the people are sort of stuck up.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is nothing to do on campus during the weekends. Or weekdays. I frequently go home.

1 College Freshman

Local Area: There isn't much to do. I'm transferring in the fall to somewhere that has more things to offer socially.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Everyone is pretty strict, and that means there really isn't much to do on campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I haven't seen any security on campus. I think there needs to be more lights at night.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I feel like the choices are the same everyday and I choose to eat in my dorm a lot.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had a good ACT score/GPA in high school, so I got a scholarship based on that. FAFSA was annoying. I also had some outside scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live on a renovated floor in my building, so it's nicer than most buildings. I was in a triple, and both of my roommates moved out by the end of the first semester, so it's a bit lonely.

College Sophomore

Majors: There really isn't much of a process. Just be ready to work.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There is a large chunk of science courses that need to be taken, so if you like science it's great, but if not it's something you'll have to work at. The first three semesters are mostly core, but you get enough experience within the major to get a feel for it.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: With the Ashbrook Program, there is a strong political presence which tends to be on the conservative side. It's nice though because they are willing to make their voices heard on issues that are impacting the entire student body.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school and would not choose another school if I could do it again. I came in as an undecided major, and everyone including professors and advisors were very helpful and understanding when it came to making a decision and taking the right classes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 94% of our graduates are employed or in graduate school. I think that speaks a lot about what you can do with a degree from Ashland.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are small and dated. Clayton is nice because of the middle room. Most residence halls are in close proximity to the class buildings.
