What’s in the SU
The SU is a campus hub for activities, student services, resources, and provides space for the campus and community to meet, hold events, and connect.
Explore the programs, services, and resources available throughout the SU below.
Big Event. Small Event. Same Great Food.
SOU Dining is overseen by Aladdin. One of Aladdin’s commitments to SOU is to provide world class catering at every level. They are creative, innovative, and responsive to each and every catering client and guest served. Aladdin understands that every event they serve is a VIP event.
Aladdin offers a broad spectrum of menu ideas or will custom design any event from scratch. Their goal is to create a pleasurable dining experience with clear communication before, during, and after each event. Menu selection may be simple to extravagant, depending on the event’s needs. The team’s experience and ability to create special events make any type of function “out of the ordinary.” Aladdin is committed to providing exceptional, high quality catering events in support of events on site.

Lost and Found
To report a lost item stop by and see us in the Stevenson Union or email us and we will document it in our database. We keep a database of all items that are reported lost and everything that comes in that was found.
When something has a name on it, we will send an email to the student account. All items are kept until the end of fall term and spring term. Then a notice is sent out to students telling them that in two weeks we will clean out the Lost & Found and give everything away. Oregon state rules do not allow us to just give things to students, staff, or faculty so everything goes to local charities or Goodwill.
Other departments do keep their own lost and found, however, eventually almost everything comes to the SU.
We would like to return everything to the rightful owner so here are some tips:
- Write your name in your notebooks
- Put contact information on your USB drives
- Add a contact named “Owner” on your cell phone
- Keep an image with your contact information on your digital camera
- Provide a way to contact you on your calculator, school books, backpacks, or anything else you don’t want to lose
