State Farm Hall of Business

State Farm Hall of Business 410 S University St.
Normal, IL

The State Farm Hall of Business building embraces the best features of the nation’s most prominent business schools, while retaining the spirit of personalized, student-centered education that is the hallmark of Illinois State University.

The 118,000-square foot State Farm Hall of Business building, designed in the Georgian style of architecture, opened in January 2005. The facility blends the small college campus environment with a corporate presence and state-of-the art technologies.

The COUNTRY Insurance and Financial Services Atrium, the central core of the building, was designed to reflect the modern, strategic focus of Corporate America. Those entering the building are greeted by a six-story, 1,000-plus square foot open area. A glass wall on five levels offers a picturesque view of the courtyard. The Atrium also serves as the crossroads between the building’s classroom wing on the building’s west side and the faculty/administrative wing on the first, second, and third levels on the building’s east side.

The building’s four stories wrap around a courtyard in a 21st century version of the Oxford College model. Three arched openings from the Quad lead directly into the courtyard, a scenic location for informal study sessions, conversation, and meetings.
