(WOUB) - A seven-point-five million dollar gift will help create the new home for Ohio University's Scripps College of Communication.

According to a news release, the donation from alumnus Steven Schoonover and his wife Barbara is the largest single cash gift from a living alumnus in the history of the institution.

The new building will be called the Schoonover Center for Communication.

It will combine the former Baker Center and the Radio and Television building to house the school's five colleges and the WOUB Center for Public Media.

The total project cost is estimated at 37-million to 40-million dollars.
