Surrounded by mountains, the Siskiyou-Cascade National Monument, the Rogue and Klamath Rivers, Mt. Shasta and Crater Lake National Park, Ashland supports a plethora of outdoor activities, from skiing and whitewater kayaking, to mountain biking and mountaineering.

Unique Academic Programs
- Wine Business - Wine Business at SOU provides students the opportunity to learn many aspects of the wine trade from the history, geography, and environmental requirements to grow grapes, to the processes to make, bottle, and sell wine, to sensory evaluation techniques and communication about wine. Students will apply business principles from sales and marketing to effectively market and promote wine, along with learning management, accounting, computer applications, and hospitality and tourism factors that are important for successful wine businesses. SOU sits in the Rogue Valley, a prolific wine region that is the warmest and driest of Oregon's wine-producing regions. Southern Oregon's terroir creates distinctive viogniers, tempranillos, and pinot noirs.
