Created By: PocketSights


Hollister Hall is headquarters for the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). CEE has three broad intellectual areas: Civil Infrastructure, Environment, and Engineering Systems and Management.

A favorite among CEE’s sophisticated research facilities is the DeFrees Hydraulics Lab,
the focal point of research and experimental studies in the environmental fluid mechanics and hydrology program. The state-of-the-art turbines and tilting water tanks reproduce some of nature’s hydrodynamic complexities in a variety of test conditions.

Hollister Hall was opened in 1959; it is named in honor of Solomon Cady Hollister who was dean of the college for 22 years, beginning in 1937.
