"When I first started at Ashland University, I came in with very little information about what to do, where to go and how to be successful as a student. But as a veteran student at Ashland University, you’ll enjoy many benefits, including having Randy Spade and his team at your side to help you through your journey. He doesn’t get nearly enough appreciation for the help he offers those transitioning from military service and their families. Once you’re here, you’ll understand why Ashland University is such a great place for military-connected students. "

"Before coming to Ashland, I was dreading the process, the stress and the sheer number of steps it takes to go back to school. But, once I discovered the Office of Military & Veterans Service on campus, I didn’t even consider going anywhere else. Any time I need to get something done outside of my skill or knowledge set, Randy Spade and Chelsea Weiler are immediately there to take care of it. I started attending Ashland during the Spring 2020 semester and made an instant connection with other veterans who understood my struggles and what transitioning to college entails. Even a global pandemic couldn’t stop the outstanding support I received from the staff and fellow veterans. On top of it all, now we have a fantastic new building where all veteran students can gather and feel welcome and understood."
