Ashland, Ore. — Hundreds of high school students hit the campus of Southern Oregon University on Friday, to get a feel for college life.
More than 600 prospective Raiders toured the campus, spoke with professors, and spent time with current students. That’s nearly 200 more than last year.
School officials say they’ve never seen such a widespread turnout.
“A little over half the students were from Oregon, almost that many were from California, it was kind of amazing, there was one from Wyoming,” Spokesman Joe Mosely said.
This fall, the university has had a drop in enrollment numbers. School officials say they’re hoping the tour will leave a good impression on their guests.
