Gordon Niva and Susan Lahr Challenge Match for the Lohr College of Engineering

Today, your gift to the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering has the opportunity to make an even bigger impact.

Gordon Niva ('73) and Susan Lahr ('75) have generously agreed to give $5,000 to the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering if we reach 50 donors to the college on August 30 - One Day for STATE.

Jackrabbits love a good challenge - so let's pull together to make a difference!

Dean's Advisory Council Challenge Match for the Lohr College of Engineering

Once the first challenge is met, let's keep the momentum!  The Dean's Advisory Council for the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering will provide $7,000 if an additional 50 donors make a contribution to the college on August 30.

Let's rally together to make an impact on our campus!

Where Will the Money Go?

Your gift provides support to the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering to help meet highest needs within the college, such as:

  • State-of-the-art equipment for labs and machine shops
  • Outreach programs to inform and excite K-12 students about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields at SDSU  (Examples include:  BEST Robotics competition, GEMS (Girls: Engineering, Math and Science), Engineering Expo, others)
  • Support for student group activities (i.e. – SWE, Engineers Without Borders and IEEE)
  • Special student project support (i.e. – Formula SAE, Human-Powered Vehicle, Concrete Canoe and ¼ Scale Tractor)

Every Gift Makes a Difference

Any gift, of any size, really can make an impact for the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering.  For example, gifts in these amounts may provide:

  • $50 purchases a strain gage kit for the Measurements and Instrumentation Lab
  • $100 buys replacement tooling for the CNC machining lab
  • $200 funds a new materials lab project
  • $500 provides mall equipment for the Production Lab such as circular saws, cement mixer, laser level and slump testing kit
  • $1,000 updates computers in the Construction Management computer lab

A History of Support

Gordon Niva and Susan Lahr both attended Frederick High School in Brown County, SD, but they never dated until they started attending SDSU.

Susan graduated from the College of Pharmacy in 1975; Gordon graduated from State in 1973, majoring in Engineering Physics and Chemistry. They married in 1975, while Gordon was attending graduate school at the University of Nebraska. Their giving reflects their interests while on campus: Pharmacy, Engineering and the Hobo Day Gallery.  A fun fact - Gordon was a Hobo Day Committee member and has the distinction of having served as “Weary Wil.”

The Dean's Advisory Council members are engineering alumni, employers and business leaders that donate their time and talents to the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering.  This group represents local, regional and international firms that look to SDSU and the Lohr College of Engineering for highly qualified engineering graduates and research advancements.  These individuals and companies are some of the best supporters of the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
