The top three reasons someone should attend Southern Oregon University are because of the community, size, and location. Our campus has such a tight-knit community, it is so easy to make friends and to be apart of the student body. I love the size of the school. Some might say it's too small, but I think it is just right. With only a little over 6,000 students, you are able to really get to know your professors. My largest class this past term was 90 students and my professor still knew who I was. It is a really comforting feeling to have a small, close-knit school with a community you can truly feel apart of. I also adore the location of the school. Ashland, Oregon is such a beautiful place to live. It has so many cute parks and an adorable downtown with so many shops. Medford, Oregon is only 20 minutes away which has a mall for your more commerical needs. The campus is just so beautiful and I couldn't be happier with my choice to attend Southern Oregon University.
