Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2009

The chemistry program at SOU provided passionate, engaging faculty and small class sizes that fostered discussion and teamwork within the program. I received excellent support from my adviser; they even tailored a major to my needs in order to help me graduate sooner and leave prepared for my next move (graduate school). Both lower- and upper-division professors made their expectations clear and helped us achieve our academic goals. My favorite part was the real-world emphasis of the classes. Also, Ashland, OR is a great place to live while studying, and SOU has programs and activities that take full advantage of the outdoor lifestyle there. All around, a great experience and one that I would recommend.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Southern Oregon university is a great place to get your education. The great mountains, trees and other great wildlife gives it a great environment to be in. The professors and students are friendly and genuine people. Every professor is more than willing to help you and actually prefer that one-on-one time with their students. They have amazing programs and because of our great environment and community, Southern Oregon also has other programs that your normal university may not have.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012

My college is known for its theatre program and its sciences, so in those areas I've heard wonderful things about SOU. In political science, I found my professors to be fabulous, but didn't feel incredibly challenged on the coursework. Additionally, I studied French and Spanish and thought those programs were very good. It's a small college, professors are very accessible and it's a beautiful campus.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

From a business prospective the ROI of SOU's program was very high. Personally, my wife and friends were all able to get jobs straight out of college that paid between $45 - $60k. There were people going into management training through enterprise where after a year you got paid $42K, accountants start around $45K, and sales jobs were more like $60-$90. Even though around that area the median household income is just over $42k people with a college degree have a number of opportunities to make much more right out of college. The professors really care about the students success and work hard to get student opportunities.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

Southern Oregon University has an outstanding school of business. The instructors all have very diverse backgrounds, lending to the curriculum they teach and the experience they share with students. The class sizes are small so each student is able to get one-on-one time with the instructor. The school of business offers a great variety of focus areas to choose from, as well as many certificates and minor options. Overall, Southern Oregon University not only fit my educational needs, it also fit my budget and I would recommend this university to anyone who wants to study with highly intelligent professors and a diverse group of peers.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

It has small class sizes for majority of their classes and the professors are great. Although there are points when if you don't agree with the majority you get lowered on grades or treated differently

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2006

The program has some fantastic professors, with small class sizes, and state of the art facilities. Being able to talk to my professor, rather than an assistant, made a huge difference in my ability to get the kind of education I was looking for.

Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2004

After graduating from SOU with degrees in Environmental Science and Chemistry I moved to Portland where I found a job in an Environmental laboratory. SOU provided me with a very solid background which allowed me to adjust easily into my career as a Chemist. While at SOU I made incredible connections with my professors because of the smaller class size. We were also able to run instruments like an NMR, GC/MS and others. If I would have attended a larger university a TA normally runs the instrument and gives the students the data. I would definitely recommend SOU.

Degree: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2016

I really enjoyed gaining the knowledge this program offers. I truly look at the world differently due to the intricate studying of systems that biology, chemistry, and physics offer.
