West Virginia University has officially opened a new building to house its business school.

The university says the grand opening and ribbon cutting for Reynolds Hall took place Friday at the Morgantown campus.

The 186,000-square-foot facility will offer amenities that include a 300-seat auditorium, an atrium, a social stairwell modeled after Google’s headquarters, a café and dining area and a fitness center.

The facility is named after Bob and Laura Reynolds, who were on hand for the opening. Bob Reynolds is the president and CEO of Putnam Investments and a 1974 finance graduate of the university. More than five years ago, the couple donated $10 million to begin construction.

Several others donated $1 million or more to the project as well.
