    Who are the richest donors/possible donors for ISU

    Just curious, my friends and I were talking about the SEZ and wondering who could finance it. I was curious as to who are some of the more well off ISU alums and what do they do.

    Re: Who are the richest donors/possible donors for ISU

    You know, the poster who mentioned tuition.....got me thinking...some of you students should get on GSB. Similar to things like Lied Rec, the Health Center, etc, student fees have been used to pay for capitol projects.

    Now, as JP said on KXNO, the SEZ would have to be more than just seats...if it were seen as a true entry to campus, I think GSB could used to support it. There could be a welcome center in there used for non-game days, etc.

    Think about it. $5 a semester, per student, for say 15 years really would add up. :)

    Re: Who are the richest donors/possible donors for ISU

    Becker & Underwood sold to a private equity firm almost 10 years before the BASF deal. I would guess B & U still had stock, but I am sure it wasn't a $1 billion deal for them personally.

    Also, many people don't realize that the publicized $1 billion acquisition of Albaugh's company didn't go through a few years ago. I would think he is doing quite well financially, but cutting a multi-million dollar check to the ISU athletic department might not be something he is interested in doing.

    Christina Hixson. That wonderful lady (my benefactor for my undergrad scholarship) owns a nice slice of the Las Vegas strip. She's also contributed in the past to the UNLV athletics dept., along with various donations to ISU.
