The ASOSU Cabinet took a tour of the campus and expored the rich history of Oregon State University.
To our surprise, the university was founded to support the “Industrial Class” in their pursuit of knowledge. As education at the time was only available to the wealthy elite, OSU provided the necessary bridge to educate the lower/middle class.
This brings pride to know where your roots lye, and to know that our university is built upon equality, where anybody and everybody should be born with right to an education.
For more information read the above plaque, (pictured) which is found in the OWEN building on OSU campus. It is located on the east wall of the tall smokestack that used to power the university.
