At noon on Monday, Sept. 11, four chimes will sound from the bell tower of Kirkland Hall symbolizing the four crash sites and solemnizing both the tragedy and the extraordinary heroism that define Sept. 11, 2001, as a day of both loss and unity.

The four chimes representing the four separate attacks—on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, on the Pentagon, and on United Flight 93—will toll as Benton Chapel’s doors open beginning at noon for remembrance, quiet reflection and solace, assisted by the Office of the University Chaplain and Religious Life.

Other campus spaces for prayer and contemplation that are open to all include the following:

  • The annex next to the courtyard at the Office of the University Chaplain and Religious Life
  • Sarratt Student Center, Room 110
  • The Commons Center, Room 215
