4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe here. Fellow students don't harass me and there are a to of resources for support groups. I'm not sure how great the school is on handling sexual assault. It may help that we don't have a Greek life here, because we don't have a huge problem.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It was easy and straightforward.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: SOU is very inclusive and has many support communities. Teachers and experiences here have expanded the possibilities of what I want to achieve in my life. I'm finding myself here. It's not all gravy all the time, but for the most part I feel like I belong in the community and I love the location and the outdoors experiences.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I haven't needed their service that much, but many friends say it is great.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors have varying teaching styles, which accommodates my need for variation.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The area is known for its performing arts opportunities.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cheapest residence hall has many issues including leaky roofs.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: It is non-existent, with the exception of one business fraternity.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Most people who aren't on a team also aren't fans of sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the people. There are programs to get people to socialize. I'm dissatisfied with the housing and food service, though.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I find it difficult to make new friends--people find their groups and stick to them. I feel like there isn't necessarily a ton to do, but that may change now that the weather is getting warmer and I am used to the school. I have an awesome advisor (Kayla Rapet) and have valued some of my professors who are passionate about what they teach (Marianne Golding, Andrew Gay, and Wesley Leonhart), but I just don't think the academics and programs are quite up to general standards. Beautiful campus and area.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I have an amazing job on campus. I work in the Marketing and Communications office and Max Brooks is very helpful and dedicated to helping students find jobs.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: I live in Shasta Hall and absolutely love it. It's spacious and clean and new. The people can be noisy, but I got used to it.

3 College Student

Athletics: I really do not pay attention to athletics, so my responses are probably not very accurate.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: Southern Oregon University stays true to their commitment of diversity and inclusion. I find the administration and processes difficult to deal with--I always feel like something goes wrong and I have to fight to fix it. Some classes are interesting, but USem is frustrating and unnecessary for the most part.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: For the past two terms I have personally had night classes that got out around 9 pm. Even though that seems scary I have never been scared walking home because I always see the "Help" phones around campus. These phones and all of the street lamps help me feel safer when walking home.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: With every course I have taken at Southern Oregon University the professors are always willing to help you. Each of the classes offered are diverse in nature. Even the class sizes are easy to get used to.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In my personal experience I have witnessed very few recruiters for jobs since the first job fair in fall term. Since then it seems that one has to look extremely hard for a position.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are close to classes so walking to classes is not a problem. Almost every Thursday night the RA's put on an event in the third floor lobby. The events are always fun to participate in and give the floor a great community atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Southern Oregon University does not offer Greek life on campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone at Southern Oregon University is very supportive of the sports teams here. Games are often watched by not only students but also community members.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Southern Oregon University is not only incredibly supportive of every individual but it also is extremely helpful when it comes to educational concerns. The whole school works hard to help every student exceed in the program that they chose. If I got a second chance to pick a school I would chose Southern Oregon University all over again because of the welcoming atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The community is great! The RAs are wonderful and care about their residents.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite experience here so far is taking USEM with Professor Schacht. The professors are caring and are very helpful. I would definitely choose this school again, because this school is very inclusive with everyone, whether it be your race, skin color, gender preference, or any other.
