U of I's Assembly Hall is now called State Farm Center.  Associate Athletics' Director Kent Brown says the building needs serious renovations and the insurance giant is dishing out 60-million dollars toward upgrades.  The renovations will be complete in 2016.  

Assembly Hall has been a staple on the U of I campus for 50-years.  The new name takes effect immediately.
