A historic year for OSU!

At Oregon State University we are educators, innovators and leaders working together to solve Oregon and the world's most pressing problems. Our ambitions are not contained by classroom walls or computer screens – we are out there making a difference. None of this would be possible without the help of our visionary donors.  This year donors made OSU the go-to place for philanthropy (we had the best fundraising year in OSU history!) Thank you!
