Just off interstate and well worth a visit. Plenty of spaces to park for those visiting and you can just stroll around the various building and see college life. Plenty of gift shops to look at. An ideal sunny Sunday afternoon visit.

Pamela. Sorry, I don't know that chapel, so I have to refer you to the person above and their answer to contact the college. I personally used Chapel in the Woods in TN, and could not recommend it higher. It was perfect.
