Student Testimonial


"When I came to Ashland, I had almost no English skills. However, I’m taking the ACCESS program to improve my English until I am able to study my major at AU. I have a lot of American friends who also help me to improve my English. Additionally, I will never get homesick because Ashland is a safe place to live and it has friendly people."

-Ahmad Bondagji

Student Testimonial


"My international classmates and ACCESS teachers give me knowledge you cannot get from the books. While studying we learn from each other to know more about the culture and customs of different countries."

-Hongfeng Fei, China
