Personal Reflections

One thing that stood out to me when researching this school is how small the classes are; I think this is a good thing because you'll feel better with all your classmates since it's only around 30 people instead of 100+. And you'll probably be more comfortable asking questions. I would consider this college, I would recommend someone to look at it if you are wanting to go into business and management.

A freshman from Ashland says, "AU is truly a beautiful school. The campus is nice, and the people are nice also. I haven't had a problem with anyone and I love it."
