The Oklahoma State University campus is a beautiful place where fond, lasting memories are made. By making a gift of a decorative planter, bench or lamppost, you are commemorating a loved one, a mentor or a memory on the campus to be enjoyed by all for years to come.
A popular gift option for those wishing to have their own special place on campus is an attractive, comfortable cast-iron bench – an amenity much appreciated by students, visitors and the entire University community. Benches provide places for faculty, staff, students and visitors to enjoy campus or meet informally, and are an important aspect to the overall landscape at OSU.
Your personalized bench will preserve the legacy of a family member, treasured faculty mentor, or friend, while enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the campus and the surrounding community.
A 3” x 10” bronze plaque commemorating your gift is a functional way to have your generosity acknowledged and enjoyed for years. Bench plaques include three lines with 30 characters per
Tribute benches are located around Theta Pond, the Edmon Low Library, Student Union, in display gardens, along trails, and around most academic and residential campus buildings. Tribute benches provide a place of rest and contemplation for thousands of visitors. Your tribute bench gift not only provides an additional seat for visitors, but also supports the care and maintenance of our gardens, outdoor art sculptures, and campus beautification efforts.
Decorative planters are located throughout the campus providing our landscape with a home for beautiful foliage year round. A true focal point of our campus beautification efforts, the decorative planter allows the campus to fully bloom from season to season. A gift of a decorative planter ensures the beauty of Oklahoma State University continues on. Recognition will be etched in brick and placed at the base of the planter at the discretion of the University dependent upon the location.
Gifts will enable an aesthetically pleasing and unified approach to lighting across campus, providing a consistent look with those elements in the future. Lampposts adorn the Oklahoma State campus to provide light and safety to the many students, alumni, visitors and campus family. Whether down historic Monroe Avenue or the newly established Legacy Walk, lampposts are available to memorialize or honor individuals.
