OSU-Cascades Vice President Becky Johnson addressed the work session of the Bend City Council about the campaign progress to bring a four year university to Central Oregon.  Johnson said that Bend could be just like Boulder, Colorado if we had a four year university here:  “I was surprised to learn that there are only about 20,000 more people in Boulder then there is here in Bend. And they have been recognized over and over for their quality of life. In particular, they have been named in the top ten happiest cities, to 10 brainiest cities, top 10 healthiest cities, top 10 cities for artists. And one of the top 10 cities for raising an outdoor kid." Johnson presented a complete video package to demonstrate the benefits of a four-year university and asked for the City's support when presenting the package to the Board of Higher Education.  The Council decided to instruct staff to put together an agenda for what the city could do to help - besides the political support in Salem.
