Historical Note

The Alumni Memorial Chapel was dedicated by President Hannah on June 7th, 1952 in honor of the approximately 6,800 alumni wartime veterans and 427 victims since the Civil War until World War II. Various stones from European bombed cathedrals, a synagogue, and the White House were set into the walls of the narthex, nave, and chancel. The chapel serves as an interdenominational spiritual gathering place available exclusively for MSU alumni, students, faculty, staff, and their immediate families and seats 190 people. The stained windows depict historical events important to MSU as well as the names of some who perished in war.
