OSU's Dr. Kayse Shrum Talks About the New Frontiers Ag Hall and More

Mon, 08 Nov 2021 16:30:04 CST

OSU's Dr. Kayse Shrum Talks About the New Frontiers Ag Hall and More At the recent Annual Oklahoma Farm Bureau Meeting, KC Sheperd, associate director of Radio Oklahoma Ag Network, spoke with OSU President Dr. Kayse Shrum. Shrum was one of the speakers at the event, talking about OSU’s revival of the famous Dairy Bar.

Right now, the Ferguson College of Agriculture at Oklahoma State University is building the New Frontiers Building which will be the new home of the college and will feature a re-imagined Dairy Bar.

According to this story from OSU, the Dairy Bar was a staple on OSU’s Stillwater campus beginning in 1928. Students would frequent the campus eatery for a variety of foods and dairy products, including ice cream and ice-cold milk. The eatery was housed in the old Dairy Building and offered a place for students to enjoy good food, socialize and unwind between classes.

“I am an ice cream fan; it is my weakness,” Shrum said. “I am looking forward to getting the Dairy Bar open so I can stop by and have ice-cream with students, faculty and alumni.”

The New Frontiers building is looking for final funding through the New Frontiers campaign, which is one of Shrum’s short-term goals as 2021 wraps up.

“We are going to begin working on strategy,” Shrum said. “We want to continue our fundraising, complete our campaign for the New Frontiers Ag Hall, we are going to expand our offerings online … and win a Big 12 Conference, right?!”

Still bothered by the NCAA’s decision to uphold a one-year ban on the postseason competition for OSU men’s basketball this upcoming season, Shrum said the decision is tremendously unfair to OSU’s student-athletes.

“We want to see what we can do to ensure that our student-athletes can play in the postseason,” Shrum said. “Many of the seniors were in middle school when this happened, the coach is no longer here, other schools that had the same situation did not get postseason bans, so this is really a travesty for our student-athletes and Oklahoma State.”
