Opinion of Campus Coffee

Opinion of Campus Coffee

No matter what time of the day, from the morning hours to late night cramming for a mid-term, students are prone to indulging in a cup of coffee or two. As a coffee drinker myself, I’ll take a cup of joe around the clock. If I don’t have at least three to four cups a day […]

Yearly permits at SOU are $140 for both resident and commuter and as I discovered last week, students have differing experience(s) with parking.  There are a total of 2,200 resident, faculty, and commuter parking spots, while 3,000 […]

The idea is that through this campaign, young people will be conditioned to “just say no,” to the hooded […]

 To avoid situations like the one above, refer to the SOU campus parking map. “Parking is one of the top five universal problems on campuses,” says Frederick Creek, director of Southern Oregon University Campus Public Safety. Although Creek accepts parking as an issue on university campuses in general, he doesn’t think SOU has a lack […]

The Smoking Pen

Large clouds of funny smelling smoke, a handheld device the size of  a pen and a user who will tell you how much healthier it is than cigarettes, welcome to smoking: next generation.
