From the beginning of the planning of the College campus, the student body had requested that the Chapel be the first building constructed, and they asked that it be American colonial in style. The Chapel, made of Bedford Indiana limestone and a steel and concrete frame, sits on the highest point on campus overlooking the Mississippi River. During the academic year, the Chapel is home of the Christian Science Organization (CSO) which offers a Sunday service and Wednesday testimony meeting each week. CSO also hosts a Sunday evening Hymn Sing, Christian Science lectures, as well as other events to nurture spiritual study and practice on campus.
