LONGTIME SUPPORTERS Dave (B.S. Agricultural Sciences ’72) and Paula Edwards built their one-of-a-kind home at 218 W. Magnolia St. – three blocks from the CSU Oval – with the dream it would become a gathering place for family, friends, and the community. That dream will take on a new dimension next fall, when they transfer ownership of the stately brick home to Colorado State University.
Colorado State University will use the 7,449-square-foot house as a home for future CSU presidents and to host events, visiting dignitaries and small gatherings.
“This is such a rare and generous gift, and it’s a reflection of how much Dave and Paula love CSU,” CSU President Tony Frank said. “Their passion and energy enliven every part of the community they touch. We’re delighted their home will become a centerpiece of campus and community life, and we’re deeply grateful to them for making it possible.”
The Edwards received the Charles A. Lory Public Service Award for extraordinary contributions to the university in 2009. In 2014, they each received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the College of Liberal Arts.
A president’s residence is traditional on college campuses, but CSU hasn’t had one since the 1970s.
