The first new academic building in 20 years at Drury University will be named after the O’Reilly family.

At a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday, Drury officials announced the building will be called the C.H. “Chub” O’Reilly Enterprise Center.  The O’Reilly family made a significant lead gift for the project.

The late Chub O’Reilly was the patriarch of the O’Reilly family and is a Drury alum.

The three-story, 56,700-square-foot facility will cost $27 million to build.  It will house several programs, including the Breech School of Business Administration and the Department of Political Science and International Affairs.
