Campus Reservations, Events

The Chapel was one of the first Greek structures in Athens. With its six massive Doric columns and classic design, it was easily among the finest buildings on the early campus and remains one of the university’s most prominent and popular landmarks. The chapel is still in great demand today as a venue for lectures, campus meetings, and wedding ceremonies. One unique feature of the Chapel is that it houses one of the world's largest framed oil paintings, “Interior of St. Peter's Rome” by artist George Cooke.
