Degree: Education

It was a great choice for me, it was very friendly and the campus was easy to navigate. It was also within a nice trip to go home on weekends. The professors cared and did all they could to see you succeed.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

The college has a very small town and personal feel to it. Classes are small, so the professor knows who you are and it creates a level of accountability you can't get anywhere else.

Degree: Early Childhood Education and Teaching
Graduation Year: 2015

If you are looking to study Early Childhood Education, then Ashland University is worth looking into! The education program is amazing. Ashland is a private institution, so class sizes are small and individualized. This was one of my favorite parts about studying at AU. Another reason I choose to study at Ashland, is because of the amount of time I was able to spend within the field. Starting your freshman year, you get to experience what it is like in the field. After your freshman year, you begin student teaching for 13 weeks every year in either the fall or spring semester. Not many other schools offer over 600 hours of teaching experience in regular and inclusive classrooms at partner schools in the area, opportunities to expand your marketability by adding a grades 4-5 endorsement, Spanish minor or dual licensure with early childhood intervention, Learning the best practices in teaching, assessment and classroom management that will make you highly qualified and accountable for your students’ learning, Unique experiences that make you stand out: meeting professional children’s authors and illustrators, student teaching in the Southern United States or in 17 different countries, working with faculty on research projects and professional presentations, Learning the latest technologies, such as SMART Boards, and how to use them in primary classrooms. Ashland produces some of the most qualified teachers in the area, and I have more than enjoyed my time at AU. My professors and advisors are top knotch and really know how to prepare for your first teaching job. They work closely with carrerr services department to find students teaching positions after graduating. I feel really prepared for once I graduate, and I honestly feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to attend a school that produces such quality teachers.

Degree: Marketing/Marketing Management, General
Graduation Year: 2014

College has definitely been a defining part of my life full of self-discovery and growth. Ashland has great academic programs that provide students with hands on experience. Almost all the professors genuinely care about you and your education which means that you as the student get individual attention. In the College of Business, there are particularly good study abroad opportunities. There are semester exchange programs as well as a summer program in Taiwan that are designed specifically for business majors. Another great aspect of Ashland is that it is a small university with friendly people and very active organizations. Our Campus Activity Board (CAB) is award winning, and we have a growing Greek Life community in addition to several other organizations. There is always something going on (not necessarily something huge and exciting but something), and you can make great friends. The only problem that I encountered at Ashland was in Founders (the administrative building). I found that the administration was not always very open in their communication with the students which resulted in us getting blind-sided by decisions that directly effected us. While my friends and I understand that many of those decisions had to be made, we just would have liked the chance to have input or at least a heads up. Additionally, several of my friends repeatedly had issues with the business office/financial aid at the beginning of the semester. Ultimately, I had a good experience at Ashland, received a fine education, and made life long friends, but Ashland was not without its headaches. I know that they are trying to improve and Student Senate is always trying to get the administration to be more communicative with students, but I don't know when/if improvements will be seen. All I can really say is that Ashland University is a great place to go to college, but be aware of the problems and weigh that in your mind before making a decision.
