Current Areas of Support


OPSU Housing Fund

Donations to this fund will be used towards renovations to campus housing. This five-year project encompasses renovations for all OPSU housing including the president’s house, the dorms, the apartments and faculty row. The first phase is to remodel the president’s house and is in progress. This historic home will be an essential tool for attracting external resources. The next phase will focus on the student dorms. Dorm renovation plans are currently being finalized with upgrades to bathroom facilities and lighting improvements, as well as the addition of moveable furniture allowing students to personalize their rooms.

No Man’s Land Football Stadium Fence Pillars

A few naming rights are still available for the “Pillars of Pride” at No Man’s Land Stadium at Carl Wooten Field. Each pillar has a 12 x 18 white logo plate that can be engraved with your name. Pillars are $3,000.00 and can be paid to Panhandle State Foundation. For more information, contact Coach Russell Gaskamp at 580-349-1332 or rgaskamp@opsu.edu.
