Keep going Dawgs!
Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford is once again participating in the international social media day of charity, #GivingTuesday. This year SWOSU is competing against historic rival Northwestern Oklahoma State University (NWOSU) in Alva to see which institution’s alumni, emeriti and friends will make the most private gifts to support student scholarships and grants.
“Of course, we want to beat Northwestern,” said SWOSU President Dr. Randy L. Beutler. “More importantly, we want to provide our students with the scholarships and grants that will permit them to achieve the highest levels of excellence. I’m asking for each and every friend of our university to make a #GivingTuesday donation today. Help give the Bulldogs a victory over the Rangers!”
