Utah Valley University has received a $1 million donation to match any money raised for a new science building.

Marc and Debbie Bingham made the donation Monday.

UVU officials say the donation couldn't have come at a better time.

UVU has the fewest square feet per student of any institution of higher learning in Utah. That's been compounded in the last two years by growing enrollment and state budget cuts.
