Missouri S&T has received a $2.5 million gift from Nucor Corp for the university’s Arrival District. The events plaza in the district will be named in the company’s honor.
The Arrival District will connect the university’s entry point off I-44 to campus through a series of landscape and building projects that also will improve access along Bishop Avenue and direct visitors through a grand entrance plaza into a campus commons area featuring gardens, walkways and an expansive lawn.
Nucor is the largest steel producer in the United States and North America’s largest recycler. Nucor was also a major contributor to the expansion of Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall and donated structural steel to complete the Clayco Advanced Construction and Materials Lab, and Kummer Student Design Center expansion. In 2006, Nucor established the F. Kenneth Iverson Chair of Steelmaking Technologies endowment, which supports Missouri S&T’s Peaslee Steel Manufacturing Research Center.
