Pictured above is Steven Perry, a senior student a Southern Oregon University. I asked Steven what should change at SOU and what he would do personally if he had the chance. His response to my question was, “i would continue to make sure SOU improves their goals towards sustainability and becoming one of the most environmentally friendly university in Oregon. I would also make sure that SOU starts a compost pile, reducing the amount of waste we are putting into landfills and creating useable compost for the school”.
What Would You Change About SOU?
Katrina Terp, an Environmental Studies major, feels that more awareness and support needs to be given to the Southern Oregon University Food Pantry. “I feel like not many people know about it,” Terp explained. The SOU Food Pantry is an organization that’s goal is to fight hunger and poverty among students trying to attend school. They alleviate the effects of this by providing basic necessities such as food and hygiene supplies to students in need.

Q:Hey there, new student here! I was wondering where I need to go to submit my enrollment fee (the site's kind of a mess). Also, do you know where one could apply for an on-campus job?
Do you have access to MySOU yet? That’s the easiest way other than physically going to the Enrollment Services building (Britt Hall.)
Welcome to SOU!
A small sample of photos/reasons we already have for the project.
This project really got started in Summer of ‘13, but we didn’t really get to do any work on it until nearly October of ‘13. We were able to do some picture taking/filming for a couple weeks after that, and then we sort of stagnated.
Had other things.
I’ve finally got the files that I have organized, months later. I haven’t watched the (few) videos I have, nor have I even converted all of the photos out of raw format or edited the .jpg files, but its a start at least.
I got a good laugh at looking over some of the reasons after such a long time - there’s one with a guy chowing down on a hamburger that just brings a smile to my face.
Hopefully it’ll bring a smile to someone else’s.
Not yet sure how I’m going to combine the photos with the video. I had hoped to make it a purely video project, but it didn’t work out that way. There’s got to be a way to make it look nice rather than hokey or cheesy. Hopefully my collaborators are more creative than I, because I’m totally taking suggestions.
Until then its just a matter of cleaning up what we have, getting a hold of the rest of the footage, and planning how to get the next batch going.
The new dorms at Southern Oregon University are quite a treat to both freshman students and upperclassmen alike. The construction of McLaughlin and Shasta dorms are the first step in many of the improvements taking place all over the campus of Southern Oregon University within the next few years. Whitney Graham and Chelsea Carroll pictured here love living in Shasta hall and they were quoted saying “it is a fun and safe community we love being a part of”.
Q:As a future student looking to live on campus, I wanted to know what you thought about living in a coed environment. Having never been in one myself, I was wondering what the pros and cons were.
I really didn’t mind it at all.
Everyone got along well enough and it was actually nice to have to have that balance you know? It really wasn’t a big deal for anyone, and was no different than living with a bunch of folks your same gender/sex. Some of the guys even participated in girl talk from time to time. ;)
For me it was like living with a bunch of brothers, except driving me batty wasn’t in their job description.
