Daniel Chapel from afar at sunset

Daniel Chapel

Centrally located on campus across from the James B. Duke Library, with its steeple backdropped against Paris Mountain, the Chapel has become a beautiful focal point on campus. Not only do we host worship services in the chapel, our students use the downstairs space for their own religious group meetings, and our community members reserve the sacred space for religious services like weddings and funerals.
