The new main classroom building, State Farm Hall, opened for classes in the fall of 2013. The nearly $16 million building was a key priority of the University’s $125 million Transforming Lives fundraising campaign.
The 48,700-square-foot classroom facility anchors the north end of the Robert S. Eckley Quadrangle, where Sheean Library had stood since 1967. In addition to state-of-the-art classrooms, study areas and research spaces, the building is now home to the departments of Business Administration and Economics.
An important building feature is the Glenn and Rozanne Parker Kemp Commencement Plaza, which will be the backdrop each spring for Commencement ceremonies on the Quad. See photos from Commencement 2013.
