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.
