Schaller Chapel, which was dedicated in 1963, adjoins Dixon-Eilers Hall and is named for George J Schaller, a long time member of the Buena Vista's board of trustees. Schaller plays an important role in the undergraduate life of the campus. It serves as an auditorium, theater, and chapel. It also hosts weekly chapel services and special events such as the Baccalaureate and Founder's Day, as well as most events in the Academic and Culture Events Series (ACES). There is a small meditation chapel on the lower level. The building features a Hansen Organ, a three manual Reuter pipe organ with 2048 pipes, and the chapel spire, which is a campus landmark.
