Thank you for giving to Oklahoma State in 2015! Every OSU donor has an orange passion. Some help OSU remain one of the nation’s best college buys for students. Others help the university attract and retain talented teachers and researchers. And there are those who support world-class facilities for learning and collaborating.

We are grateful for the countless unique ways you have chosen to support OSU. On behalf of the entire Cowboy family, I want to thank you for using your orange passion to improve lives and drive us toward a brighter future.
