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!

Great School in a small town. The town is known for their Shakespeare festival. Love the library, and the campus is easy to get around.

Thursday june 4th and Friday June 5th the SOU campus hosted a psychadelic seminar for FREE. Lots of great wisdom from people who have been experimentring with the medicinal aspects and applications of entheogenic substances! So pleased with the levels of competency among the speakers! Thanks SOU!!!

Southern Oregon University is a hidden gem. with a variety of quality scholastic offerings, great climate, Mt. Ashland, the quaintness of Ashland and many other recreational opportunities, SOU is hard to beat. Graduated from SOU many years ago and have very fond memories

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
