Illick Hall is home to the Department of Environmental and Forest Biology (EFB) and features the College’s beautiful greenhouses located on the roof of the building. It also houses the Roosevelt Wild Life Collection (named for Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the U.S. and a dedicated conservationist). EFB is the College’s largest academic department, and Illick Hall contains faculty offices, laboratories and classrooms, along with a small lecture hall.
The construction of Illick Hall on the south side of campus created the ESF Quadrangle, an open-air gathering place for the College community. Illick shared dedication ceremonies on Oct. 11, 1968 with its neighbor on the Quad’s west end, Moon Library. It is located directly across the street from Syracuse University’s Carrier Dome.
