Most philanthropists will tell you the positive feelings that come from giving are even stronger when the gift is sparked by passion. At OSU, the legacy of giving comes from people who are touched by this university and the emotion created by being on campus. Women for OSU clearly understands the passion and emotion that bonds those of us who bleed orange.
As First Cowgirl, I am often energized by our sense of family. Recently, I have witnessed a renewed sense of pride in the beauty of our campus, leading generous donors to help further enhance the vision.
The new Price Family Garden, which serves as an attractive entrance to campus in front of the Atherton Hotel, is an example of such generosity. Stuart and Linda Price, inspired by OSU’s beauty and momentum, established this garden to honor mothers. The garden grows herbs, fruit trees, raspberries and other items that might have grown in your mother’s garden.
Like many non-alumni, the Prices joined the OSU family because they felt the sense of nurturing, openness and compassion that defines us.
The diversity of our Cowboy family is one of our greatest strengths and is reflected in Women for OSU. These ladies help people unite their passion and unique opportunities to give back to the university.
Women for OSU continues the legacy of giving back by supporting our land-grant institution. In this newsletter you will read more about our history, including two women who helped establish it – Jessie Thatcher Bost and Angie Debo.
Together, we are continuing their work by making the world a brighter orange.
