Educational opportunity is the great equalizer in our world. No other organization places a higher priority on each individual’s education than Ashland University. Over the last 140 years, more than 50,000 students have come to Ashland and been transformed by their experience here. Our graduates are leading in the fields of education, business, science, and nursing. We continue to uphold our commitment to “Accent on the Individual,” so each student leaves here prepared to live a life defined—and fueled—by their unique purpose.
Open to all students, this program is divided up into three classes, each meant to help individuals find their passions, talents and opportunities for growth as they plan for both their careers and future lives.
Freshman Orientation Program
The program is designed to facilitate a smooth transition for new students and peace of mind for parents with the promise that their children will experience the Accent on the Individual from the first moment they arrive.
The Center will welcome and receive veterans as they transition from military service to campus life. Support services offered through the Center will include recruitment, admissions, registration and GI Bill processing, financial aid, academic advising, accessibility services, mental health counseling, and career development.
CoBE/Eagle Investment Group
The global financial market is growing more fast-paced and competitive by the day. So this project was developed to build upon our success. By adding Bloomberg terminals, the modern icon of the financial markets, and boosting our endowment in order to hire well-qualified Finance professors, we will be able to provide the necessary experience and guidance allowing our Finance graduates a competitive edge after graduation—whether they choose to work on Wall Street or Main Street.
Accent on Writing
This initiative helps undergraduate students in all disciplines become more mindful, effective, and confident writers. We believe writing is not only a necessary tool for communication but also a means of discovery and knowledge-making.
Ashland University’s athletic program is one of the best in NCAA Division II. Previous generations of coaches, alumni and supporters form the foundation AU Athletics is still building upon today. Year in and year out, fans of Eagle Nation have grown to expect excellence, on and off the field, and to win both conference and national championships
Help build our lasting legacy of enriching and expanding the student-athlete experience.
Ashland is built upon the idea that each individual who passes through these halls deserves every possible opportunity to succeed. For our student-athletes, that means opportunities on the court and off, on the field and in the classroom.
