(Ashland, Ore.) — About 600 high school students are expected to be on the Southern Oregon University campus on Friday (Nov. 18) for Preview Day, the institution’s main Fall Term college visitation event for prospective students.

Currently, the record number of Preview Day attendees is the 469 who visited during last year’s event.

Preview Day activities introduce students to various aspects of campus life, to the opportunities an SOU education can make available to them and to the people that make the university a special place. Prospective students will tour the campus and residence halls, meet with faculty in academic areas that are of most interest to them, explore resources and facilities, and dine on campus.
