2019 Remembering Boone Pickens

Oklahoma State University came together to honor the legendary Boone Pickens, the Ultimate Cowboy. 

Mr. Pickens passed away Sept. 11, 2019 at the age of 91. He was a captain of industry and a record-setting philanthropist whose success in the energy field led to a transformative impact on OSU. 

The 1951 graduate of OSU’s School of Geology, now the Boone Pickens School of Geology, gave a combined $652 million to the university during his lifetime, split evenly between athletics and academics.
