Played for the women’s university soccer team and attended the university for 4 years. Loved the campus, students, advisors, ASHLAND, and so much more. So much to do in town and on the outside of town. There is something for everyone!

So far my experience has been great! When I first arrived, I wasn’t expecting much because of COVID and the guidelines set in place because of it. I came in making sure my hopes weren’t too high because of how limited everything is. However, I’ve found myself enjoying the scenery and experience! The dorms have been satisfactory. There is plenty of room in our room and we are getting along well. I’ve made some new friends and met some wonderful teammates. The main reason why I am here is because I am playing soccer, and I can safely say it’s been going very well. There are restrictions in places but they haven’t outweighed the good things in my opinion. I’m just really glad to be able to get out here and play again. It’s a slow start, but it’s something. I’ve also really enjoyed the dining. There are plenty of options and I have nothing to complain about.
