Construction of the Gideon F. Egner Chapel began in October, 1929, and the building was dedicated on January 1, 1931.
The Chapel plays a major role in campus life. In addition to Mass and weekly worship services, highlighted events such as Honors Convocation and Candlelight Carols are favorites among the community. Recitals, vocal performances, and choir concerts frequently take place in the Chapel.
The chapel underwent an extensive renovation from 2011-2012, and now features a restored roof and interior masonry.
