The building was renamed after the Ferguson's gave Ivy Tech a $1 million donation for building expansion.

Cook executive Steve Ferguson and his wife Connie are giving a $1 million donation to kick-start Ivy Tech’s expansion fund. Ivy Tech officials made the announcement this afternoon at the Bloomington campus.

The main academic building on the campus will now bear the Fergusons’ name.  The Fergusons say they’ve contributed to Ivy Tech for many years but they want to make this gift because they believe so strongly in the value of a quality education.
