University May Struggle to Hold Students in the Future

Currently, OSU-Cascades has 1,200 students, but that number could grow to as many as 5,000 by 2025. To keep up with that projected growth, university officials requested $69 million in bonds from the state to expand the campus, including a second academic building.

As Central Oregon Daily’s Mackenzie Wilson reports, those plans may be delayed after state lawmakers revealed their latest funding plan for higher education.

    OSU-Cascades campus looks like a dump with overgrown tall weeds and dead pine trees recently planted and legacy tall pines. OSU-Cascades needs to show they can take care of their existing campus and be a positive influence on the community. The high out of control weeds pose a major fire hazard too. Don’t get me started on parking issues and those bikes that saw no activity in winter.
