08/26/2019 - Few buildings on campus are as historic, or distinctive, as Altgeld Hall. Like the nearby Alma Mater statue, the Altgeld “castle” is an iconic part of the campus and the backdrop for countless graduation photos. Plans to renovate the 122-year-old building have been kicking around for at least 13 years and in a serious way since a 2010-11 feasibility study. The project has been high on the UI’s list of state capital funding requests since 2015. It’s now moving forward with a major funding infusion from the state...
