The Ohio State University at Lima received yet another donation for their new Perry Webb Student Life Building.

Crop nutrient provider Nutrien has pledged $75,000 to be used towards activities, programs, and infrastructure needs in the building to help make the space as best as it can be for the students.

"I hope they meet a lot of new friends, make a lot of contacts that really helps them through their career, and hopefully we can retain some of this talent in the local area to stay here after they graduate," says Todd Sutton, general manager of Nutrien Lima Nitrogen. "It really supports our core values. It really gives a nice central spot in campus."

Sutton says those core values are health and wellness, education, and community building, all things that will be supported through the resources available in the student building.

"That's the reason for us building the facility, to provide the students with an opportunity to have this space to enhance their on-campus experience with us," says Dr. Fábio Leite, Associate Dean. "What that contribution allows us to do is to keep at it; keep staffing the desk without students to work, to have controlled access to the gym, and to establish other activities that would bring students to the facility."

OSU Lima named the building's welcome center the Nutrien Welcome Center in recognition of the donation.

They will hold an official grand opening of the building on September 14, 2018, at 10 am.
