OSU Cascades has met its goal to raise at least $1-million by the end of June. It was a capital campaign to show state leaders the community is behind making OSU Cascades a four year university. Mt. Bachelor has pledged a quarter a million dollars over the next five years. The Ski Hill will give the college 1000 ski vouchers every year for the next five years, and they'll be good for an all day ski lift ticket for $50 dollars, any day except holidays. Andy Goggins is Mt. Bachelor's Director of Marketing. “The economic impact for our community could be pretty significant if it goes through. It’s going to be great for OSU and great for the community.”
Ultimately, OSU Cascades leaders hope to raise $4- million in local donations, along with $4-million in campus funds and $16-million in state funds to make OSU Cascades a four year university.
