Known for

Access to outdoor activities
LGBTQ+ friendly
Accessible and helpful professors
Beautiful campus
Close-knit community



SOU has great professors and excellent art programs. The professors really care about what they teach and are always able to help when needed. I have had some really good interactions with many professors, and they have your best interests in mind when giving advice.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The cons are that the administration is frustrating, and you have to jump through many hoops to get any sort of information on things. The food isn't great, it's definitely cafeteria food.

It's very welcoming and has lots of options to help its students succeed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It can be a little overwhelming and difficult to navigate, especially the school website.
