After years of planning, playing ‘musical offices’ around campus this summer, and some nerve-wracking last-minute hold-ups on state funding, the rehabilitation of Schroeder Hall is now well under way.

Home to the Criminal Justice Sciences, History, Politics & Government, and Sociology & Anthropology departments and one of the largest classroom buildings on campus, Schroeder will undergo an external and internal renovation which will take up to four years to complete. The project will include upgrading the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems of both wings of the building as well as replacing heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems, electrical distribution and lighting systems, fire alarm system, and water and sewer systems. All hallways and classrooms will be removed and then rebuilt, resulting in improved classroom facilities, better offices, and nice department suites.

Of great excitement to the whole campus is the fact that the facility will be modified externally to resemble other Illinois State Georgian buildings.
