Welcome New Students and Families!

Week of Welcome at Southern Oregon University supports new students and their families through the process of becoming successful and life-long members of the SOU community. This support is achieved through an intentional series of programs designed to foster student learning and development.

Week of Welcome is September 20-29, 2018. You will receive an email to register for New Student Orientation soon.

Week of Welcome begins on Thursday, September 20 with events that will assist in orienting studnets to campus. All First-Year students are expected to attend and we highly encourage Transfer students to participate. If you have any questions, please email Danielle Mancuso at
