Class of 2024

I came to Ashland primarily to play tennis. I love the coach and the atmosphere. The coaches and my teammates are great. What has stood out to me most about my time here is the one-on-one relationships I’ve built with the faculty. Those connections are a big part of what makes this place so special.

'24, RELIGION, POLITICAL SCIENCE AND THEATER

Coming from Texas, Ashland University has been an incredible experience. My faith is really important to me, I was on the debate team in high school and my parents run an independent film company back home: I couldn’t decide which of these three things outweighed the others, so I’m currently a triple major in Religion, Political Science and Theater. I’ve had a really unique learning experience all around. It’s a beautiful time in a really interesting place.

'24, HISTORY, POLITICAL SCIENCE

The Ashbrook Scholar Program first drew me to Ashland. The people I’ve met here have made it feel like home. The scholarships I’ve received have been a huge opportunity for helping me get a great education. Through the Ashbrook programming, I’ve been able to meet a lot of prominent people – politicians, political leaders and other really important people. Finding your place here and having a ton of opportunities to learn and grow make Ashland a great place to spend your college years.

'24, BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

I want to follow in my dad’s footsteps and run my own company. The smaller classes here help you focus and the one-on-one attention from the professors has made a huge difference as I prepare to own and run a business. My favorite AU moment so far was walking on to the soccer team freshman year. One of the goalies broke his arm and they needed a replacement. I tried out, got the nod and I’ve been part of a great team ever since! If you’re into connecting with people, engaging in on-campus opportunities and are into great food, Ashland is the place for you.

Class of 2024

As an athlete interested in actuary science who really loves snow and coming from Georgia, Ashland University felt like a perfect situation for me. I’ve since switched to education and I love the idea of inspiring others to learn and grow. Orientation was a great moment here...meeting new people and collecting canned food door-to-door, it was a lot of fun. I’ve made real, lasting connections with professors during my time at Ashland and it’s encouraging how much they want to help you succeed.

'25, EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

My mom was diagnosed with cancer last semester, which was hard. But my professor, Susan Franz, was diligent about reaching out and making sure I was doing okay. The support you get from the people in this community is overwhelming. I’ve had a ton of great experiences with my sorority sisters and I’m excited to prepare for a career in early childhood education.

Class of 2024

I came to Ashland to play on the soccer team. I kind of fell in love with the place on my first visit. Since then, the professors, teammates, friends and the whole community have made it feel like home. Ashland has a tremendous science program, so that’s been a fantastic experience as well. The individualized attention has really helped me learn and grow.

'24, CRIMINAL JUSTICE

One of my grandfather’s best friends is one of Ashland’s football recruiters, so that family connection helped bring me here. My time on the football team has been great and I’ve met a lot of great fellow criminal justice majors here on campus. The faculty are focused on producing individual attention, and the whole experience has been really valuable. It’s like a big family.

'24, MBA

I was a nurse but wanted to switch from a clinical to an administrative role. The atmosphere is great, it’s a nice size, it’s intimate and I love the people here. The staff and faculty helped me modify the MBA program with a specialization in Healthcare Management to meet my personal and professional goals. I was surprised to find a really diverse group of people here. I’m originally from Nigeria and worked as a nurse in the UK for years, but when I came to Ashland there were people from all over the world. It’s been a great experience.
