Took my daughter, who was accepted for Fall 2015, up to Ashland this last weekend with the family (wife and 2 other younger daughters) and was very impressed with the small school atmosphere yet big heart of the town. My daughter and wife fell in love with Southern Oregon University, the town, and beautiful surrounding nature area. Looking forward to... More

I visit often as BOTH of my daughters attend school here. It's situated in Ashland, OR which is a wonderful, quaint little town. I just love the atmosphere, lots of parks, great restaurants and of course the "college twon" areas that bring back many memories from long ago. Downtown Ashland has Lithia Park, so inviting, running stream and great place... More

We walk our dog, as do many others, on campus on the weekend when it is super quiet and quite tranquil there. There are several pieces of sculpture to admire and some very nice looking buildings, some relatively historic. This had been designated a 'tree' campus and the shade is just what you need on our hot summer days. If... More

Was smaller than I imagined it would be, but grounds were all well-maintained and some of the buildings were cool architecturally-speaking. It was a weekend, so no classes in session and no students around.

The campus is tour is very helpful. If your children are considering attending SOU definitely schedule a tour. We drove over from Bend, OR and missed our initial tour time due to some heavy snow in the mountains on the way. When we reached Medford my daughter called to see if it was still possible to tour the campus and... More

I enjoyed seeing the campus and taking a walk through it while staying in Ashland for the Shakespeare festival. It looks like a wonderful place to go for a degree.

So excited to have my son attending here! The dorm life and dining hall (the Hawk) are so new and nice. Can't wait to visit again. The campus is beautiful and full of old world charm. The new library is spectacular. And the art building is phenomenal!!

This is a nice campus in a beautiful location. The school is not to large which is really great. It is a very comfortable campus.
