"SWOSU’s Advancement team at Burton House is strategizing on how we can do the next right thing in support of SWOSU and our university’s alumni, emeriti, and friends during this unprecedented situation. I have been in extensive consultation with the leadership of the SWOSU Foundation, Inc. Board of Trustees and the Board Presidents of the Foundation’s two subsidiaries, the SWOSU Alumni Association and the SWOSU Athletic Association. All of our generous, involved volunteers and stakeholders are unanimous in their continued commitment to standing with SWOSU as they have for decades. 

The entire SWOSU community is grateful for and encouraged by the steadfast backing of our philanthropic partner organizations in all seasons.

We are postponing all Advancement-oriented gatherings planned for the months of March and April including the Alumni & Friends Reception in Amarillo, TX that was originally going to be held on March 26 and the private fundraising event in western Oklahoma that was originally going to be held on April 4.

We fully intend to hold these events on new dates once the current situation improves.

Please keep in touch, and do not hesitate to contact me if we can be of assistance. As always, we consider it an honor and privilege to be of service to SWOSU and our supporters who invest their time and treasure in SWOSU’s mission of delivering a quality higher education to all.

In Southwestern,

Garrett T. King, M. Ed."
