“Who cares about education? Take a walk!”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

I really love this campus for walks. The tree-count is high, the paths take you on gentle ups and downs, the noise factor is quite low considering that the population is mostly young, the glued-to-smartphone-and-walking-into-you factor is not high - all together a lovely place to take a midday/lunchtime stroll. The trees provide some cooling factor in the summer and the campus is well-maintained in winter so you're not fighting snow/ice. Your tax dollars help provide these lovely folks with a good education; why not get some exercise and help yourself as well!

“Enjoyed a basket ball game”

parking was not the easiest. But really enjoyed the spirit of the game and the students were extremely well behaved and appropriate. Nice time

“A Beautiful University in a beautiful town”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

What more could you ask for? This University is picturesque with expansive green lawns, lush landscaping and a friendly campus and town. It is located close to town where you can walk to restaurants and activities.

“This school has everything”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

Imagine a college where skiing is less than 30 minutes away, a Tony award winning theatre is 5 minutes away and the town of Ashland offers an abundance of culture, wonderful food and wonderful people.

“Great asset to town”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

This small but mighty college is a boon to Ashland. Very friendly and easy to tour the campus. Even though it is on the main street through town, once you are on the campus you feel removed from hustle and noise. Great small college.
