The town of Ashland is considered slightly more liberal than most Oregon towns, and, therefore, the university shares the same reputation. As for stereotypes, I haven't run into any. The student body at SOU doesn't reinforce social cliques, and stereotypes are kept at a minimum really.
When people see our school and where it's located they think of the Shakespeare Festival, hippies, and parties. Our school isn't just about theatre and partying, there is a great one-on-one interaction between professors and students in all departments, and a lot of success in the science department.
