DeGarmo Hall

Location:
DeGarmo Hall 250 S. University Street
Normal, IL

DeGarmo Hall is home to the College of Education and to the Department of Psychology.

DeGarmo Hall, opened in 1972, was named after Charles DeGarmo (1849–1934), a Principal of the Grammar Department of the Model School from 1876–1883. DeGarmo graduated from Illinois State Normal University (ISNU) in 1873 and began his career as a prolific writer by co-authoring a language book.

After seven years at ISNU, DeGarmo left for Germany for three years of advanced study. He then came back to ISNU as a Professor of Modern Languages and Reading. In 1881, DeGarmo published The Illinois School Journal.

There are carillon bells at the top of DeGarmo Hall that chime on the hour from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
