Oregon State University has announced a $50 million lead gift from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous in support of renovations to Reser Stadium.
The gift will support a $153 million project that includes the renovation of the west side of the stadium and construction of other facilities, including an interactive welcome center, new health center facilities, and additional meeting space for university students, faculty, and staff. Slated to be completed by the start of the 2023 football season, the project will offer new seating options, a 360-degree stadium concourse, expanded concessions and restroom facilities, enhanced sightlines, and improved accessibility options for fans.
"This is a game changer for our football program," said OSU head football coach Jonathan Smith. "We want to show our recruits that Reser Stadium is intertwined within our community and campus every day of the year. As we bring families and recruits to campus, they will see the construction of the stadium and see the momentum of this program. The level of support this program, our athletic department, and the university receives from Beaver Nation is always impressive. I'm so grateful to everyone who is contributing to make this project a reality."
