Greetings from Pete Coming Soon
By the end of 2015, the OSU Institute of Technology campus will become the newest home of a bronze statue of Frank Eaton, or as he’s more widely known, Pistol Pete, the mascot of Oklahoma State University. Donations can be given through the OSUIT Campus Beautification Fund. The statue will be sculpted by Oklahoma artist Wayne Cooper, who has shown pieces in galleries and museums all over the world. Cooper specializes in Western art on large canvases and larger-than-life sculptures. LEARN MORE
Investing in Community
As OSUIT grows, the campus is working with the city of Okmulgee to provide more residential housing for students. OSUIT will purchase two properties in downtown Okmulgee to develop into residence halls. Construction is expected to start this summer and administrators hope the building is ready for up to 70 student occupants by 2017. If you would like to support this project, give to the Okmulgee Downtown Revitalization Fund.
