Honoring Tradition. Securing our Future. The Campaign for Utah State University.

$310 million and growing. The university’s comprehensive campaign is thriving with one year to go. 2010 saw new buildings and marked increases in endowments, chairs and professorships. The $600,000 Merlin Olsen Field Campaign, statue and endowed scholarship are fitting tributes to the university’s most decorated football player and distinguished alum who died March 11, 2010. Honoring tradition and securing our future, indeed.

Utah State University gained new campuses in Price and Blanding with the birth of Utah State University- College of Eastern Utah and moved into a new neighborhood in Park City when the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter joined the university — the result of the largest private donation in university history. And, one became two July 1 when two new colleges were launched on the Logan campus — the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Caine College of the Arts.
