Southern Oregon U. Prepares To SOAR

Even if there's an institution of higher learning in your town, you may not visit it much.

Southern Oregon University aims to remedy that situation, at least once a year, with its SOAR program. 

SOAR stands for Southern Oregon Arts & Research, a showcase for the projects students are churning out as they are learning.  SOAR returns May 16-19; we get a preview from board member Jeffrey Gayton and professor (and Ashland City Council member) Dennis Slattery.
