Illinois has taken one of the large halls and entrances for a display of minerals, agricultural and industrial wealth, as well as its less commercial activities in the areas of public benefit and education.

The University of Illinois exhibits take up much of the space. A model of the university is set against the backdrop of a group of renderings and plans of the University's School of Architecture.

The School of Engineering and the mathematics and chemistry departments are represented, along with some of the less technical phases of university life.
