The O'Reilly Family Event Center is located at the heart of the Drury University Campus. This new center is approximately 65,000 sq. ft. with a seating capacity of over 3,000. The facility offers expanded and improved spaces for academic and athletic functions, as well as allow Drury University the ability to host NCAA Division II National Tournaments.
Being conscientious to both the users and community, the O'Reilly Family Event Center is designed in a manner that is responsive to the existing architectural style of the campus, while also being one of the largest projects utilizing green technology in the area.
The large tower feature acts as a definitive landmark to the structure and defines a new plaza entry onto the campus site. Through the utilization of brick and brick banding, along with decorative metal panels, this new facility complements the existing surrounding structures without overshadowing the conservative and clean line style of architecture that is predominately displayed and noted as the image of Drury University.
