The OSU Student Foundation, or OSU StuFu, is a service organization that promotes philanthropy through in a variety of events on the OSU campus. These events allow our students to interact and build lasting relationships with OSU alumni and friends, and instill a desire for philanthropy across the student body.
The Student Foundation strives to support the mission and purpose of the OSU Foundation by providing a student perspective on giving, promoting awareness of the ways private gifts impact student life, and establishing a culture of philanthropy that enhances the future of Oklahoma State University.

Note from the President
Jordan Burns, StuFu President
Entering our eighth year of existence here at OSU, our organization has experienced an astounding amount of growth since its founding, and our members are passionate about making a lasting difference on our campus and in the lives of students. Throughout the year, our members play a major role in thanking donors to our university as well as cultivating a culture of philanthropy on OSU’s campus by encouraging students to give back, developing the next generation of generous alumni.
In August, Student Foundation received several awards at the National level at CASE ASAP (Council for the Advancement and Support of Education and Affiliated Student Advancement Programs). Student Foundation was recognized as an Outstanding Student Organization among over 100 student programs at universities around the nation. One of our programs, Tuition Freedom Week, was awarded National Outstanding Student Advancement Program. We as a Student Foundation are incredibly proud of these accomplishments, and we hope to use this recognition to continue pushing forward and creating change on our campus. I am incredibly proud to watch students from diverse backgrounds, majors, and ages come together with a shared attitude of gratefulness and a desire to improve student lives. I am honored to serve as Student Foundation President this year, and I believe that together, we can inspire a culture of giving at OSU.

What is your favorite part of being involved in StuFu?
My favorite part of being a member of the Student Foundation is being able to devote my time and efforts to an organization that makes immediate and lasting impacts on OSU students. I am especially passionate about the focus the Student Foundation places on student scholarships. Originally, I was not going to be able to attend OSU due to financial reasons and had signed to play softball at a junior college. However, late in the spring of my senior year of high school, I received a full-ride scholarship to OSU! This meant I could attend my dream school and it gave me the freedom to pursue a challenging major that would prepare me for medical school. Four years later, I am now fulfilling my dream and will be attending OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine in the fall. I can’t imagine what my life would have been like without the generosity of donors and hope to one day be able to give back as much as was given to me.
What is your favorite OSU tradition?
My Favorite OSU tradition is singing the Alma Mater after football and basketball games. Seeing the entire stadium come together arm and arm shows just how close the OSU community is.
What is your favorite place on campus?
The Anne Morris Greenwood Reading Room, it is the best place to study on campus!
Would you rather be Pistol Pete or Bullet and why?
Bullet! Because he is the most loved horse in history.
