This is a very friendly atmosphere. I feel welcome, even as a post-secondary student I have friends here and it is so exciting. Everyone will help you out, just ask anyone on campus a question and they will help you out with whatever you need.

I love being a student athlete at Ashland University! Being an education major can seem like a heavy work load, but I am still participate in the athletic program as well. There is a strong feeling of support on campus, I have close friends in both the College of Education and athletics.

Ashland has an amazing program which I can get an Intervention Specialist license in Mild/Moderate and Moderate/Intensive. Not only does this give me a wider range of students to help but it opens up many more job opportunities once I graduate.

Coming to Ashland University after being in a teacher academy was an easy adjustment. I feel that the high school program was very rewarding and better prepared me for college. I easily tested out of the Introduction to Education class, and I still feel that I have more experience than my peers

Ashland University does a great job accepting PSEOP credits from another institution. Taking these classes while I was in high school gave me the opportunity to finish my core classes before entering college. I love being able to automatically start focusing on classes that are in my major.

Being a Middle Grades major is hard, because you have to pick two concentrations, but Ashland University gives me the chance to add a generalist endorsement which lets me teach all subjects in grades 4 and 5
