The Campanile, one of the University of Northern Iowa’s most iconic structures, will soon ring out with a newly restored set of bells. Refurbished by The Verdin Company of Cincinnati, the set of 46 bells will return to campus on Monday, May 1 along with nine new bells, equipping the Campanile carillon with a vastly expanded musical range.
Beginning at 1 p.m. on Monday, May 1, Panther students, alumni and friends in the community are welcome to visit campus and get a once-in-a-lifetime photo with the bells before they are re-installed. The Campanile’s first 14 bells will be on display on the ground for the public to see up close, something that hasn’t happened since the Campanile was originally built in 1926.
Many of the original bells were dedicated to various groups, so the public is encouraged to come get pictures with their bell; citizens of Cedar Falls, faculty, wartime heroes, teachers, and many others have dedicated bells that will be on display. Learn more about the Campanile's renovation and how you can support the project.
Location: Campanile Plaza, University of Northern Iowa

This program supports the university's value of cultivating a caring and diverse campus community that values respect for all people, the open and free exchange of ideas, and responsible and ethical behavior. This program is not an LGBTQ+ 101 training, but instead an opportunity for those interested in supporting our community.
