Ashland University Reviews
Review Ashland University
I just finished my first year at AU, and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I cannot explain how much this school has impacted my life. I have met some very unique people, professors and students, who have greatly improved my life. The professors truly care about your education and your success after graduation. I have spent plenty of time sitting down with my professors during offices hours while they explain a concept to me, and they will completely rearrange their day to help you if needed. I really love having a faculty as my advisor because I learn more about what it is really like in my field. My current faculty advisor has been working with me to make sure that my current major is what I will be happy and successful doing. Also, most of my professors will send me links to new findings or anything related to my interests. They truly care about their students at AU, and I could not see myself anywhere else.
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.
I love Ashland University for many reasons. Because we are a small private school, the professors know you very well. The professors are also very dedicated to helping their students with their futures. I also love our Center for Academic Support. The Academic Advisors help each student in creating a four year degree plan, which helps each student plan out their major/minor courses as well as their cores. AFter the first year each student is assigned to a faculty advisor; the advisors also "green lights" the student to make sure they are on the right course. Overall, I just love the school because of the faculty and the types of courses offered. Not to mention, the food is fantastic.
