Missouri Southern State University dedicates new Nixon Hall
The dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for MSSU’s newest campus building, Jeremiah “Jay” Nixon Hall, took place on Thursday, January 31, 2019. Jay Nixon spoke at the event, applauding Missouri Southern’s devotion to the education of students.
Named for the former Missouri governor, Nixon Hall houses the university’s mathematics program. The two year, $8.1 million dollar facility was built to meet the growing student demand for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) classes, and features classrooms, faculty offices, a computer lab and a mathematically-themed decor.
“While in office, Gov. Nixon, along with Sen. Ron Richard, recognized this need and found a way to piece together funding for the construction of this dynamic new learning space. Without their unwavering support, this new facility would have remained only a dream, but it is now open and serving students.” – Dr. Alan Marble, president of Missouri Southern
