(Brookings, SD) — South Dakota State University is focusing its fundraising efforts on a new campaign. The theme of the Bold and Blue campaign is Our People, Our Places, Our Traditions, and Our Innovations. The majority of the funds raised will go toward student scholarships, faculty endowments, and research positions. A portion of the funds will be invested in campus infrastructure, including renovating the school’s nearly 50-year-old basketball arena. Another portion will support campus traditions, and the remainder of the money will focus on growth and innovation.
