What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
The academics vary from department to department, but all in all the academics are very high par. Again, it's really dependent on the amount of work that you put into the classes and the type of questions that you ask your professors/ your own willingness to ask questions and speak up.
Joseph from Ashland, OR
I am in my third year at Southern Oregon University and have yet to feel stagnate in my studies. Each year I continue to grow in my academics and sometimes even surprise myself. Being in school for four years is a long time but constantly learning new and exciting things at SOU makes the time fly by.
Brittany from Silverdale, WA
Some courses are easier than others, but they all require at LEAST 8 hours of time spent on doing homework outside of class.
Beatriz from Yreka, CA
I'm challenged in every class but at the same time, I know I'm right at the level I need to be. All of the professors I have are really good at getting students involved in class and helping them out. You have to pay attention to do well in class but you can still have a life outside of the classes.
Laura from Wilsonville, OR
I feel challenged in my classes, but it is a bit of a mixed bag. It of course depends on what teacher you have. You get out what you put in.
Savel from Talent, OR
Great teachers, hard but friendly
Kaylie from Long Beach, CA
The classes are structured in a way to help the student achieve success. There is homework but you're not smothered in it. Even with taking 16 credits one term i was still able to complete my assignments and still have some free time. all of the homework is directly related to what is being studied and not a lot of fluff.
