Garden Chapel: A quaint location with red brick walls and rustic wood trusses. The large arched windows allow views of the beautiful Garden of Reflection and Remembrance that surrounds the Garden Chapel on all sides. Maximum occupancy is 100, with about 90 guests seated comfortably.
Bridal Suite: Quaint and vintage, the Bridal Suite features two rooms: a powder room rich with 1950's flair, and an adjoining seating room. This location is available for all Main Chapel weddings, but has been used for wedding proposals and as a green room space for large events.
Lounge:A cozy, informal space with chairs and sofas that can seat approximately 25 people, with stacking chairs for a maximum of 30 people. This location is perfect for an informal meeting. Food and beverages are allowed in the Lounge.
Conference Room:A formal meeting room with seating for 18 people. It is equipped with a flat screen TV with laptop connection cables, wireless internet, dry erase board, and easel paper. The Conference Room is the formal atmosphere needed for departmental board or committee meetings and reports or presentations.
Chapel Garden, Patio & Labyrinth: The Garden of Reflection and Remembrance contains many elements that come together to create an area uniquely for contemplation. The labyrinth is a sanctuary for those who walk while they think, while benches offer a place for those who want to sit still. Water features add a soothing dynamic, while journals allow the community to express their emotions. Additional spaces commemorate the bravery of our veterans as well as historic university milestones. This space can be used for meditation sessions, class sessions, and very small weddings.
