Welcome to the Stroh Center....the Next House that Roars

And here, my friends, it is. The next home of the Falcon basketball team, to be known as the Stroh Center. Why, you might ask? Because Kermit Stroh and his wife Mary Lu announced yesterday that they will donate $8M to the facility, according to this article in The Blade.

Mr. Stroh is not an alum, however, many of his family members attended BGSU, and he has served on the Board of Trustees and led fundraising efforts at the University. He is from Wapakoneta and made his way in the natural gas industry.

From all Falcon fans, a sincere thank you to this family for their support of our University. In today's day and age, it is essential, and a grateful Falcon Nation salutes him.
