Smith Chapel

The campus community and visitors, alike, are invited into the sacred space of Smith Memorial Chapel. Standing on the main quadrangle, the chapel offers a visual and symbolic reminder of the centrality of religion and spiritual experience to the human condition.

The unique history of the chapel and the variety of activities which emanate from the building support the mission of Simpson College as a church related institute of higher education that nurtures those values which foster personal worth and individuality within a creative, diverse and just community.

Smith Memorial Chapel houses the main sanctuary chapel, Chaplain’s office, Holy Grounds coffee shop in Dirlam Lounge, Meditation Room, classrooms, meeting space, and the Music Department’s Listening Library.
