Southern Oregon University Reviews
Review Southern Oregon University
One of the main reasons I went to this school was of the small-class environment. It was nice to have professors that remembered you by name, and were often available to help you outside of class. I was a student before all of the new construction (dorms, cafeteria, science building, and soon-to-be athletic building). The dorms I stayed in were worn out and tired, and the food was sub-par. Things may have changed, though!
I am currently a freshman at Southern Oregon University and love attending this university. The school is a smaller University, but offers great diversity. The people are friendly, the professors are great, and Ashland is a cute town. The party scene is not huge and dorm life becomes annoying through people smoking in their rooms and being loud in the hallways, but that is found almost everywhere. Football is highly prioritized and the campus food is good, but gets old after awhile. The campus is absolutely gorgeous and there are plenty of activities to get involved in on campus.
Very content with courses in the music department. The USEM course needs improvement. Scheduling of classes is difficult for music majors. There are many overlapping class times. Campus cleanliness is very good. Professors who perform poorly should be disciplined accordingly. More processes should be made available online like Add/Drop Slips. The music library is admirable and it should continue that way. The new marketing for the music department is good, but should improve so that more students can be attracted to the school. Improvement on professor workload is necessary. There should be a cap to the amount of courses one person instructs. Modernization of music building should be analyzed. The music lab needs major work.
