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

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 new dorms are spacious and high tech. Solar powered,wifi, recycling center in dorms and laundry rooms that text you when your clothes are done. The... More

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
