OSU Cascades bought its first building today. The building on Columbia near downtown will house the University's Graduate Programs. One of the people who help make the purchase a reality, is former Bend Mayor, Alan Bruckner, who donated $800,000 to the project. OSU Vice President Becky Johnson says his generosity was overwhelming. “He did approach us which is very unusual. Alan and I are in the same Rotary Club. He knew we needed more space. And he asked if he could help. It was a very generous offer and I was more than happy to take him up on it.” The rest of the money is coming from State Lottery Bonds and funds provided by OSU Cascades. The building needs to undergo extensive renovations to make it classroom-ready; but OSU Cascades plans to have it ready for students by summer term.
