Grab a drink and join us for a virtual happy hour, LAS on Tap: Preserving the Storied Past of Altgeld Hall.
Altgeld Hall is one of the most iconic and distinctive buildings on campus, and many alumni have a story or two to tell about its hallowed halls. Work has begun on the restoration and renovation of this beloved campus landmark and the architectural elements that make it unique, including the rotunda, library, and murals.
The College of LAS invites you to join Sheldon Katz, Special Advisor to the Dean for the Altgeld Hall Renovation, and Robin Whitehurst and Karla Smalley from Bailey Edward, the architectural firm overseeing this project, as they lead you on a unique storytelling experience to explore how the hidden history of Altgeld Hall is being recaptured through restoration work and remarkable discoveries. Learn more about the stories Altgeld Hall is still revealing and how, by uncovering the building’s past, we are helping to rebuild for the future.
