Interesting how fewer than 40 universities have been able to raise a billion.

The campaign still needs to raise money for the Spears School of Business, the College of Human Sciences, a new performing arts center, a new baseball stadium, the OSU success center at OSU-Okmulgee and a new classroom facility for OSU-Tulsa, according to OSU President Hargis.

Glad I'm the first to say how great this is. Not a lot of people on this site that care even 1%!

As an OU grad I'd like to say this is great news! The success of the state is interconnected with the success of its universities. Besides, competition can help OU and OSU both raise their standards and goals. Scholarships for students and endowments for professors can really solidify the talent a university can draw. And I'm not just saying that because the latter is my career...

You’re absolutely correct and good for OSU.

The better both OU and OSU are the more prosperous our state can be.
We would all like better job prospects and nicer communities for our self and for our children’s futures…..
Great university’s help a lot.

So who besides T. Boone kicked in all the money? Just curious.. is this all mostly small donors digging deep or did they get any other big-time donors on board?

Hargis said more than 80,000 individuals and corporate partners have participated in the campaign.

Yeah, OU might as well get jealous and announce a $5 billion dollar fund raiser.

The new Spears School of Business will more than double the size of the old one.

I mean it's wonderful that s many folks gave a little...

But the list I wanna see would look more like:

1. T Boone, $550-ish million
2. Sherman Smith? So many million
3. The Riata people, X millions
4
5
6
So on

Details, specifics. I feel like these kinds of pat on the back kind of stories are designed to discourage the dissection of actual news.

And so the article said: "One of the highlights during the announcement was a $5 million gift from Chesapeake Energy Corporation for the Chesapeake Energy Student Success Center in the new building."

They should cash that check in a hurry.
