Tulsa native Anne Glasco always had her sights set on Oklahoma State.

“When I went to go look at OSU, I fell in love with the campus,” she said.

As a student, Glasco was involved in the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, Freshman Follies, Spring Sing and Homecoming. As an accounting major, she was also involved with Spears School of Business.

Glasco met her husband while at OSU, and shortly after graduation, they moved to Texas to start their careers.

While reflecting on her time at OSU, Glasco said one of her favorite memories was Homecoming her
senior year. “It was one of those things, Glasco said. “That could be the last Homecoming you see for a little while.”

Now the Houston OSU Alumni Chapter president, Glasco still stays involved with the university, but in a different way.

The chapter’s Brighter Orange Gala is an annual event for OSU alumni in the Houston area to get together for some fun while also raising money for a scholarship fund for OSU students in the Houston area.

It was at one of these events Glasco heard the Houston Chapter was looking for some new faces on the board.

“I thought that was a perfect opportunity to get re-engaged with the university,” Glasco said.

As the chapter leader, Glasco has the goal of getting more Houston- area alumni active and engaged with the university. Glasco is also trying to connect the chapter with high school students who are interested to going to OSU.

The Houston Chapter does several events throughout the year including watch parties, a charity golf tournament and a Cowboys for a Cause service project. The chapter also hosts a senior sendoff at the end of the summer for students in the Houston area who will be attending OSU in the fall.

“I enjoy being a part of the Alumni Association, meeting with the people we have on our board and coming
up with great and crazy, new ideas to find and engage the alumni down here in Houston,” Glasco said. “Just being around other Oklahoma State people and that beautiful orange.”
