Last week, the Campanile’s four clocks, along with its hourly chimes that the campus uses to stay on schedule, came to a halt.
Because the Campanile’s clock installation is anything but ordinary — thought to be one of the nation’s largest when it was made 100 years ago — it’s going to take some time to find or craft the right parts that will ensure it runs for many years to come.
The Campanile’s carillon performances, however, will continue according to the regular summer schedule.
Further details on the status of the bell tower’s stalled clocks will be available next week. In the meantime, visit the NewsCenter to learn more about the Campanile’s rich history.
