For over 50 years, the Outdoor Program has been a fixture of extracurricular campus life at Southern Oregon University. The OP is an inclusive community that fosters personal growth through experiential programming, professional development, and the spirit of adventure for all SOU students. Our staff are excellent resources for information about outdoor opportunities in the area. Need a suggestion for a new place to hike, backpack, kayak, snowshoe, or paddle board? Come visit us! The Outdoor Program is located in the SOU Student Recreation Center.
