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.

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.

This university was on a tour of universities for my teenage daughter. It is a small school in the middle of town. It offers many academic programs. The dorms were pretty average and on par with the other schools we visited.

Very small but beautiful. Great location. Our daughter goes there and likes it although it's quite a ways from home. Great for the outdoor enthusiast type of student. I'd recommend it.

We recently attended a performance in the Youth Symphony on the campus. It was great. The acoustics in this Music Hall are wonderful.
