Ashland, Ore. — Rain or shine, Thursday was Move-in Day for Southern Oregon University!
More than 800 students moved into their residence halls today. SOU has four residence halls available to students and all four were filled with students and parents – meeting new roommates, unloading the car, and hauling into their rooms. It was a bittersweet moment for many families, including Max and his dad.
“I’m nervous, but i am very excited for him cause i think he’s gonna do great. we’re leaving tomorrow after the farewell breakfast. Yeah, we’ll be crying tomorrow. We’re putting off the tears until tomorrow,” said Randy Dill, SOU dad.
SOU starts fall term on Monday with approximately 6,200 students to kick off the new school year.
