Website previews NSU Seminary Hall celebration

TAHLEQUAH — Northeastern State University’s historic Seminary Hall will celebrate its 125th anniversary on Wednesday, May 7. The theme for the event is “Lighting the Way for 125 Years” and will begin at 10 a.m. outdoors on the south side of Seminary Hall on the Tahlequah campus.

In the case of inclement weather, the celebration will be in the University Center Ballroom.

A special commemorative website, which went “live” on April 21, highlights the historical “path to Seminary Hall.” It is an active hub for sharing a variety of historical perspectives and can be viewed at www.nsuok.edu/seminaryhall.

The celebration will explore a number of themes, including the Cherokee Nation’s long-standing commitment to higher education, and highlighting the faculty and staff who help transform the many students and alumni who go on to impact this region and the state.

Another historic event to take place during the celebration will be President Steve Turner’s official announcement of NSU’s upcoming comprehensive fundraising campaign.

The campaign will include an emergency scholarship fund for NSU students to help relieve them of financial burdens that can potentially keep them from reaching graduation.

“A single financial crisis can be the cause for some students to withdraw from classes, possibly never to return to school again,” Turner said. “Having a fund for such situations, NSU anticipates being able to intervene and help a student with a small scholarship that will keep them in school.”

University faculty, staff, housing managers, and other students who might be aware of such a situation are encouraged to provide referrals.

NSU officials would like to invite all alumni, current students and community members to join them at this significantly historical celebration.

For more information about the anniversary celebration or to support the Light the Way Scholarship, contact the NSU Foundation at (918) 458-2143 or foundation@nsuok.edu.
