THE SOUL OF THE CAMPUS
WRITTEN BY MARK COLLINS
Each year, the Heinz Memorial Chapel plays host to more that 100,000 visitors, from brides and grooms and assembled guests to the scores of the prayerful or merely curious who pass through its doors each day. But the statistics hide the truth of the stone. Whether the reason for the visit is one of celebration or solace the chapel allows each viewer access to an inner sense of wonder.
NOW IN ITS sixth decade, the chapel has served as a centerpiece for many university events, concerts, religious holidays, as well as more somber events such as the funeral service for Pennsylvania Senator H. John Heinz III. Like its history, the chapel's architecture and stained glass windows celebrate the breadth and fullness of our intellectual and spiritual heritage.

The spiritual tide in men rises and falls," said Chancellor John G. Bowman at the cornerstone dedication ceremonies in February 1934. "Through these changes, the chapel will stand, calm and undisturbed."
