Raider Update

"Thank you for honoring me with the award of your incredible scholarship. When I opened your letter, I found myself at a loss for words. My wife and I proceeded to dance in a circle like a couple of kids--an expression of joy that represents the positive difference your scholarship will make in my life and that of my family." Grant Jolliffe, recipient of the Dodge Memorial scholarship

Enjoy the winter edition of Stay Connected. Make your New Year's resolution to take advantage of the many opportunities to engage with SOU, students, and faculty.
A great way to spend the cold winter months is to enjoy one of the many shows offered by Performing Arts or the Schneider Museum. OLLI also offers classes in a wide variety of topics and of course our SOU Raiders will challenge teams on the court and mat.
As students return to campus after the holiday break, many are grateful for the support they receive from generous donors. In fact, many would not have the opportunity to attend otherwise.  Each gift has amazing impact.
