The student body will raise funds for the Student Union.
The students will kick off the $5,000,000 gift campaign. They
have been entrusted with the task of inoculating the public
with the spirit of giving. The first manifestation of philan
thropy must be at home. To get help, the University must first
help itself. And the maneuvers for a great drive are now in
lhe alumni, with that benign feeling toward their Alma
Mater which can have only one form of expression, have
pledged $1,000,000. This will build a men’s gymnasium, a lib
rary and a memorial court. Leading citizens of the city of Eu
gene have accepted the proposal that the community raise
$500,000 for a great auditorium. And now the students are
to step in before anything else is done and do their share by
building the long-needed Student Union.
Theirs is a signal responsibility. Success or failure may
mean the spread or check of state-wide interest in the Uuivcr
sit.y Gift Campaign. With the money raised and the Union
built and the alumni and the city both would find the going
easier. It will be seen that when the students can afford to sac
rifice for the cause of education, others should be able to give
lhe advisability of the scheme has been agreed upon. Ore
gon students have never really had a center of academic, admin
istrative and social activity. There have never been adequate
quarters for student offices. The graduate manager has been
shifted from pillar to post, always uncertain of his next destin
ation. There has been no stability in the location of student
government, student records, chronicles, archives and histories.
There are needed a banquet hall, a lounge, a campus hearth to
supplant the nicotine tree. A cafeteria "would be a convenience.
There are ever so many uses to which a building exclusively for
student affairs could be put.
The feasibility of the plan is certain. Students in other in
stitutions have raised remarkable sums for union projects which
have proved indisputably successful. In fact, the oracles tell
that not many years hence a university without a union will
be like a dinner without food, there just won’t be anything there.
Today the union is an absolute necessity. Tomorrow it will be
an asset and a convenience.
The campaign for the Student Union will begin within the
month. The entire campus will organize to attain the goal in
sight. The quicker the money is secured, the sooner the build
ing will be erected, and the greater impetus will be given to
the campaign as a whole. The Student Union idea should be
like a germ, it should be contagious. It should multiply and
bring us many other and more magnificient buildings.
The students have an opportunity. They have only to suc
ceed in doing their little part in establishing the Greater Uni
versity. The rest will follow.
