My experience at Ashland University has been fantastic. I’ve been able to meet a lot of other computer science students who share the same interests as me. A major factor that helped me meet other students was the smaller class sizes. It made it easy to not only meet the other computer science students but also allowed me to get to personally know the faculty members there. Going to Ashland also opened up many opportunities for future jobs as well. I was able to get a programming internship that gave me plenty of real-world work experience and helped me become more confident working in my field. Overall, whether it was attending the ACM computer science club, participating in programming competitions, or just having lunch with friends in the computer science lounge, I was always able to have a great time at Ashland.
