Oppenheimer gives largest ever charitable donation in Cal Poly's history

what are they doing?Specifically, the gift will fund a new 70,000 square foot, 2,500 seat Agricultural Events Center capable of supporting livestock events and industry activities and conferences; a new equestrian pavilion with two 60,000 square foot arenas; a farm store to support the sale of student-grown meat, dairy, produce and horticultural products; and a sweeping modernization and expansion of the animal science teaching and research facilities and equipment.

why are they doing it?“Cal Poly’s Learn by Doing philosophy had a tremendous impact on our education and lives,” said Peter Oppenheimer, a 1985 graduate of Cal Poly. “We want to help modernize and expand Cal Poly’s animal operations and build new facilities to offer future students an even better experience than our own.”

I could have used a picture of Oppenheimer from the site linked above, but it promoted apple so I found something with Cal Poly on it.  Incidentally, this is the university my parents went to and I plan on attending when I fiiiiiiinally finish this associates I've been working on for the past 4 years.
