Drury Breaks Ground On The C.H. "Chub" O'Reilly Enterprise Center

Drury University

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.
