NDSU is "the university of choice" and is an institution with both success and momentum, according to President Joseph A. Chapman. During his annual State of the University Address, Chapman said, "I know of no other university that has accomplished so much in such a short timeframe." During the annual speech, Chapman announced the completion of the highly successful Momentum: The $75 million Campaign for North Dakota State University. He said the campaign’s final total was more than $100 million. "We’ve enjoyed 27 gifts in excess of $1 million," Chapman said of the campaign that began in 2002. "These are institution changing gifts and vital in our ability to reach our goal." The campaign raised more than $41 million for scholarships, $12 million for teaching enhancements and another $12 million that provides support for other needs. Chapman said the campaign added infrastructure to the university, with funding for Klai Hall, Richard H. Barry Hall and phase one of renovations to the Bison Sports Arena.
