Narrative:
The College's Bell Tower sits at the literal center of the campus. In the middle of the quarter mile long causewalk spanning Lake Ansley C. Moore, the almost seventy-foot-tall tower holds a full carillon with both manual and automated features. Since its construction the tower has been an icon of the College, reflecting its Presbyterian heritage.
