Fall colors and rainy day stroll through campus and checked out the Schneider Museum of Art. Great little museum and wonderful collection of women artists' works in paper. Go see and enjoy. Free campus parking on weekends.

It was over 100 degrees when we walked through this campus. but we really enjoyed its layout, the design of most of the modern buildings, and especially the art museum. A true liberal arts university, and one with separate buildings for the flagship programs. More impressive than we anticipated.

A perfect university for someone who wants quality teaching, a diverse choice of social and cultural activities, and for those retired, you can join the lifelong learning Institute, OLLI at SOU. All that, and you get to live in Ashland, one of the greatest small towns in the west.

We took the college tour and it was awesome. The guide was personable, informative and excellent at walking backwards. The campus is clean, well-maintained and very inclusive. My daughter had a wonderful experience.

Small college. Too small for us though. Nice town for a college though. Feels safe and friendly for the students.

My daughter was recently accepted into a resident writing program this summer and we had an opportunity to meet some staff and tour the facility. I'm very impressed with the academic "vibe" and my daughter noticed it right away.

We have visited the campus twice to prepare our daughter for attending this Fall. What a beautiful university and such friendly staff. We felt instantly welcome and are looking forward to many visits in the future.

Lovely campus, perfect for walking, good nearby places to eat or drink. We especially enjoy concerts in the SOU Recital Hall: The Tutunov Series for superb professional piano concerts is our favorite. Professional chamber concerts, recitals, and student recitals are on the calendar frequently, as well as local choral and instrumental groups. The quality and variety of musical offerings is...
