3 College Freshman

Transportation: There is no specific campus transportation. The town is not very big, so it is pretty easy to walk or bike most places. There is a bus service that goes to the next town over if you need to. Most on-campus students don't have a car.

Campus Housing: The dorms I live in are pretty nice. They are brand new and are big enough for two people to live comfortably.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Getting into Southern Oregon University is pretty basic. They have a pretty high acceptance rate.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Getting into the school itself is pretty easy. Getting into the theater program was a bit harder. I had to send in an audition, take a quiz, and write two essays. The professors are really good and teach great techniques. It's also helpful that the school is located in the same town as the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and many other professional theater companies, so students get lots of outside experience.

Computers: There is a computer lab and there are computers in the library. Wifi in the dorms is pretty bad, but if you get an ethernet cable, then it's not bad.

Diversity: There are a lot of multi-racial students here and we have great resource centers for people of different race and sexual orientation.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Campus life is pretty quiet. There are some interesting clubs and university housing puts on events every once in a while.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Ashland has a lot of restaurants and they are one of the few things that stay open past six. There are some pretty great places to eat here.

Nightlife: If you are underage, Ashland is completely dead at night. Everything closes at five or six.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's kind of a hippie town, so there are definitely people who smoke, but they aren't wild about it and there is almost no peer pressure on it.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's a pretty vibrant college town with a great downtown shopping area. It's by a lot of outdoor things to do, and there's a bigger city about ten minutes away if we need it.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't that many options in Ashland, you have to travel to Medford (a 15-20 minute drive) to get to any diversity.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: There is the Southern Oregon Scholarship Application (SOSA) that you can fill out, but I was never awarded any scholarships.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: Some of the bars downtown have an ok spot to dance, but the nightlife is pretty non-existent.

College Sophomore

Parking: I didn't drive to campus, I lived within walking distance as do most students.

College Sophomore

Athletics: The Raiders are a mediocre team that doesn't have a huge school following.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There was no greek system on campus, it was eliminated when converting from a state college to a university.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I didn't pay enough attention to this policy, it seemed alcohol and drugs were fairly easy to use on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers were just upgraded to up-to-date machines and operating systems.

College Sophomore

Majors: I didn't intern through the school, I found my own internship through my place of employment.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: SOU has one of the best business programs in the state.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Ashland weather is like California weather, dry and warm most of the year. Winters can be a bit cold and snowy, but the snow usually doesn't affect classes.
