The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's history has always contained a deep belief and commitment to the religious freedoms shared by all. Proud and stately symbols of this are seen in the two chapels that anchor the historic quadrangle of the UTC Campus. In the early years, honor convocations, and performance testaments, and commencements have echoed through these halls. Currently the chapels see mostly wedding and memorial activities.
Patten Chapel is one of the busiest sanctuaries in the city. Reserving the chapels should be done as soon as possible; almost every weekend is taken, up to a year in advance. A rededication of the buildings took place in 1988, in which the chapels were restored to their original beauty and grace. During the campaign, an effort was undertaken to recall the brides of the past. All who were wed in the chapels were invited to attend the luncheon and ceremony. Overwhelmingly the number of those wed at the chapels poured in. The support and stories were tremendous.
The chapels have stood the test of time. We hope you will visit UTC and the chapels that have anchored this University. As to the future of the chapels, they will continue to allow us to reflect on our own commitment to the Universitys mission: to prepare those who enter for a better future and never forget the past.
