SOU News: Fresh news and information

SOU News (news.sou.edu) is the university’s new home for all timely and relevant news and information about the campus where its readers teach, learn and work. It is intended to serve as a truly comprehensive, go-to site for updates on the university, its programs and people.

SOU News – produced by the university’s Marketing and Communications Department – is aimed at students, faculty and staff, as well as others in the community who have an interest in SOU. The website will be updated as often as multiple times daily, or whenever new content becomes available, so readers are encouraged to check back frequently.

An email with photos, summaries and links to the past week’s most popular or most important stories will be sent each Tuesday, beginning Oct. 2, to all employees and students.

SOU News will create its own stories from reader-submitted material, and will also aggregate relevant news from other sources on campus. Categories for the online “news portal” include Campus News (opportunities, events and general news), Academic Stories (about programs and scholars), Alumni Spotlight (stories of interesting, successful SOU alumni), Student Life (stories about students and events or activities geared toward them), SOU in the Arts (news from the Oregon Center for the Arts at SOU) and Awards & Recognitions (acknowledgements of excellence for the university and its students and employees).

The website also includes an SOU in the News section – the latest stories about SOU that appear in external media anywhere in the world – and current feeds from the university’s main Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.

SOU News is a hub for information about SOU, its noteworthy events and the remarkable accomplishments of its students, faculty, staff and alumni. If it’s news about SOU, you’ll find it here.
