Having lived, worked and played in the environs surrounding this wondrously located University, off and on for some 15 years now, I am left simply breathless when attending any one of several worthy University experiences. This University, having grown up from its SOC days just a few years ago (Southern Oregon College) sits on a hillside in beautiful cosmopolitan Ashland,... More

I was very impressed with how helpful the staff and students were when we attended business meetings at SOU. The catering was very good as well, and I went back for seconds on the buffet, as they offered things I don't usually see in a buffet. Very accommodating.

What can I say? My son is attending and we have been very happy with the school and it's representatives. Move in day was easy - the dorms are very nice and the campus is beautiful!

Spent 2 years here in the early 70s (1970-1972). Lived in the dorms. Pretty good party school. Lots of friendly students

If you like a small college town atmosphere there is nothing like Ashland, Oregon and Southern Oregon University. Thanks to its proximity to the renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival there is excellent theater productions and musical events far surpassing anything that should be expected of such a small college. The university also has the Schneider Museum of Art on campus with... More

We attended the SOU ROAR (Raider Orientation and Registration) with our son in July and it was ten times better than I expected. The team at SOU covered everything parents and students wanted or needed to know and in separate sessions to keep the day interesting and relevant. I was previously undecided but am now 150% thrilled my son has... More

My son has attended the SOU Youth Program ACADEMY for the past two summers (2014 and 2015). The caliber of instruction, diverse curriculum and after camp activities, such as Brainbowl and attending a Skakespearean play at OSF, has kept him interested in attend this camp in future summers. The price may strike some as steep- but, when compared to other... More

New Library with a lot of fireplaces and coaches to read. A coffee house is on the ground floor. Check out the atrium. Beautiful tile.

I attend OLLI courses here for the retired population of Ashland. But we're not really on campus. I personally think it's an amazing school in a beautiful setting - 10 miles north of California and just a couple of hours from the Oregon Coast. WOW!
