CLARKSVILLE, Ark.--The University of the Ozarks has met a $1.6 million 
challenge issued by the Mabee Foundation of Tulsa, Okla. The challenge 
stated that the University would receive $1.6 million if it raised at least 
$10.1 million in pledges for capital before Sept. 28, 1995. The challenge 
was met in August and on Sept. 18, the university received the $1.6 million 
check. Funds from the Mabee Foundation will furnish the initial funding of 
five capital projects: renovation and expansion of Smith Science Center and 
Seay Student Center; construction of the new Robson Library and Boreham 
Business Building; and renovation of the Dobson Library into an 
adminstration center.

1997-98, to be named at a later date.
