The North Central Missouri College Foundation is hosting a Groundbreaking Event to celebrate the start of construction of the Dr. Neil & Susanne Nuttall Student Center on Wednesday, April 10, at 3:30 p.m. at the intersection of Chestnut and West 13th Street in Trenton, MO. All members of the public are invited to attend. The Nuttall Student Center is a major initiative of NCMC and part of the NCMC Foundation’s Transforming Lives, Empowering People campaign. 

North Central Missouri College has a rich campus history. As the campus and student body continue to grow, so does the demand to enhance the collegiate feel of the campus and provide students with a place to congregate, build friendships, and provide educational opportunities outside of the classroom. The Dr. Neil & Susanne Nuttall Student Center has been designed to be student-centric: a central location where students can interact socially, relax, take advantage of recreational opportunities, and accommodate basic services. The center will be home to a new, state-of-the-art bookstore to supply textbooks and everything a college student needs to start their academic journey, as well as the campus community, athletic boosters, and the public with Pirates apparel. A new and larger dining hall will be open to students, faculty, staff, and the community. A functional and technology-rich meeting room able to accommodate large and small campus and external groups will also be available. The Nuttall Student Center is anticipated to be completed by the summer of 2025.

The Nuttall Student Center will be built on the block of Main and Chestnut between 12th Street and 13th Street south of Geyer Hall. The architect firm is Ellison-Auxier Architects, Inc., and the general contractor is Lawhon Construction. Those interested in learning more about the Groundbreaking Event or the Dr. Neil & Susanne Nuttall Student Center can contact the NCMC Foundation office at 660-357-6403.

Speakers during the event will include Campaign Committee Co-Chair Kim Washburn, NCMC Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Kristen Alley, and NCMC President Dr. Lenny Klaver.  The public is asked to park behind Geyer Hall.
