Opening Day at OSU Cascades Tykeson Hall

by Karim Hassanein

Today marks a shift in the Higher Education landscape of Oregon. We’re excited to announce the grand opening of the new OSU Cascades campus in Bend, OR!

As the architects of Tykeson Hall, the first new academic building on campus, we feel privileged to have contributed to this major advancement in educational access in Central Oregon. For a region that has been historically underserved, OSU Cascades is more than the first new four-year public university in the Oregon in half a century; it is a transformative opportunity for personal, intellectual, social, and economic growth.

Check out the video to hear OSU President Ed Ray discuss the Cascades mission. For more coverage of the opening, and the driving vision behind this endeavor, read Oregon Live’s writeup here, along with this post on the OSU Cascades website.
