The Campaign for OSU Celebration
A Community Inspired. A University Transformed.
What can 105,000 donors accomplish at Oregon State University?
A two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The New York Times and native of Yamhill, Oregon, Nicholas Kristof is an extraordinary thinker, human rights advocate, and chronicler of humanity.
