While I have been a student at Ashland University, I have always felt like an individual and never just a number in a lecture hall. I was told from day one that being a Dietetics major requires dedication and stamina to withstand the course load and involvement outside of the classroom. They were right! During my journey I have come to realize the professors truly care about my success as a student- whether it be reviewing challenging material or personally answering my questions in and out of class. They push me to be professional, to set goals and achieve them. There are many opportunities offered to students to gain experience in the field which allow for knowledge application and skill improvement. It takes personal discipline as well as the supportive staff at Ashland University to guide me towards my career as a Dietitian.
