Century Club

The Century Club is a specially designated group of OPSU supporters who give $100 or more annually. This year, all proceeds of this campaign will be designated to the Hughes-Strong restoration project to make necessary upgrades to the building.

The first phase of the project will include renovating the lobby of Hughes-Strong Hall, an area used by students and community members. The lobby will also hold a piece of history as the original Sower statue will have a forever home right through the front doors. As generations of Aggies pass through this area, they will be able to see this piece of history. As part of the Century Club, donors will receive a Century Club decal and special recognition as a donor to the project.

President's Message

At Oklahoma Panhandle State University, we pride ourselves on our legacy of excellence. As we celebrate our history by continuing to recognize historic areas on campus, this year we will renovate the Lobby of Hughes-Strong Auditorium.

I invite you to be part of this great campaign to honor our history. In doing so, you can honor your legacy as well as commemorate the success of our University with a lasting tribute to past generations of the Panhandle family as well as inspire countless generations to come.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to our future at Panhandle State.

Dr. Tim Faltyn,
University President

Named after Senator W. G. Hughes of Guymon and Representative W. A. Strong of Boise City, Hughes- Strong Hall has stood as a monumental building on campus since 1926. Having once housed the President’s office, Hughes-Strong has seen many adjustments over the years.

Since the last known renovation in 1999, the building now houses three classrooms, the choir room, the band hall, the music theory lab, the music library, two music practice rooms, six faculty offices, the auditorium and its original white oak stage floor.

It remains one of the oldest buildings and one of the most publicly used spaces on campus. As this building is occupied by both students and community members, it is fitting that this year we renovate the lobby in Hughes-Strong Hall with plans to refurbish the auditorium seating and stage area in the near future.
