Thrive Starts... NOW

Posted more than a year ago.

OC Family,

This is it! The day we've been waiting to spend with you is finally here. Thrive:The Complete Campaign--a campaign of a totally different breed--is coming out of the box for the world to see. And I can't tell you how excited we are to share this unique effort with you.

I'd encourage you to check out the "About" tab for more information on Thrive. We've also posted a news release on the blog that explains our "grand experiment."

I think you're really going to like what you see. Thrive is all about the students (their academic and spiritual experience), it's all about getting things done, and it's all about communication. We're going to take you with us every step of the way--from the beginning of our fundraising efforts to the close of construction or a successful program launch, you're going to have inside access to what's happening and why.

Our hope is that Thrive gets your blood pumping about the wonderful, Kingdom-growing, world-changing projects happening at Oklahoma Christian. At the same time, we also hope our campaign gives you a glimpse at what it takes every day to make a dynamic, proactive higher education community like OC happen.

Please read all about it and tell your friends. If you have any questions or ideas, please contact me at will.blanchard@oc.edu or 405.425.5115.

What a thrilling day for Oklahoma Christian (and for Eagles and Eagle Fans everywhere). We've always done more than survive, but from today on...WE. THRIVE.

-Will

PS - If you haven't watched our Thrive video on the front page, you should. If you're an Eagle, especially, it will bring a tear to your eye. So much love for alma mater.
