Also known as the Church of the Holy Spirit "the church is a reminder of Kenyon's Episcopal heritage. The College is nonsectarian now, and the church also serves as the campus chapel, a site for services, ceremonies, and the occasional concert (as well as the occasional alumni wedding). It's also a daily presence in campus life, because its bells chime on the quarter hour. They also ring in the weekend: every Friday from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m., the Kenyon College Pealers give a concert from on high, playing both traditional and contemporary tunes. Echoing across campus, the bells produce a conditioned response: everyone moves into relaxation mode." - Reference Keywords: Institutional buildings, school buildings, ceremonial and/or religious structures, churches, Ohio, Knox County, United States, middle path, pathway, walkway, landscapes, complexes, campus.
