What's New in the Tower

October - Did you see our live stream StayHomecoming concert on October 10? The replay is available if you missed it (NetID, Facebook, or Google login required). Did you see who joined us for the concert? Touchdown the Bear stopped by.

Sorry, the tower will be closed to all visitors this semester but we still want to take your requests! Use our Music Request Form to submit your song request. If selected, we will notify you when we plan to play your song.

The Cornell Chimes are the university's oldest musical tradition, and one of the most frequently played set of bells on any American college campus. Housed in historic McGraw Tower, the 21-bells are played primarily by student chimesmasters.
