Sue Ramsey Challenges Ashland University Graduates

Sue Ramsey, who will retire this year after 20 seasons as head women’s basketball coach at Ashland University, challenged Ashland University graduates to set goals and maintain a positive attitude in her address at AU’s spring commencement ceremony on May 9.

The commencement was held outside under partly sunny skies at Jack Miller Stadium in the University’s Schar Athletic Complex.

In her speech, titled “Hide or Seek,” Ramsey began her thoughts with a Bible verse, Matthew 7: 7-8, that says “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and it will be open. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and the one who knocks it will be open.”

Ashland University Dietetics Program Listed in the Top 50 in the Nation

Ashland University Dietetics Program Listed in the Nation’s Top 50

Ashland University’s Dietetics Program, which is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics (AND), has been selected as one of the top nutrition programs in the United States.

The ranking, produced by Public Health Online, noted “Aspiring registered dietitians can earn the degree necessary to move closer to their goals at Ashland University. Courses expand students’ knowledge of nutrition, health and science. The university strives for small class sizes, allowing students to get personalized attention from instructors. Graduates must complete an approved dietetic internship prior to sitting for the exam to earn a credential. Dietitians can go on to work as practitioners in settings such as clinical, community and food service organizations. The internship program is selective, and a field placement cannot be guaranteed. To become more competitive, students can excel academically and pursue work-related experiences.”
