This tower is towards the middle of the campus. It’s tall and pretty cool. We enjoyed seeing it as we walked past.

Some architectural critics have compared the McFarland Carillon on the University of Illinois campus to the Picasso statue in Chicago. Not so. Located at 1301 West Gregory Drive in Urbana, the McFarland Carillon also has been referred to as the McFarland Bell Tower or McFarland Memorial Bell Tower or South Quad Bell Tower. Built in 2008-2009, it is a 185-foot-tall bell tower with 49 bells, which can be controlled by a computer with 500 pre-programmed songs or can be played directly with a keyboard. Truth be told, the South Quad Bell Tower wasn't supposed to be. The carillon project began as an attempt to upgrade and renovate the University Chimes in the bell tower of Altgeld Hall. But it wasn't feasible to fit 49 bells in a tower that holds only 15. So a free-standing campanile tower that had been considered as a possibility for the campus since 1913 became a reality. The construction of the McFarland Carillon was funded with a $1.5 million donation by Illinois alum H. Richard McFarland and named for his wife Sarah "Sally" McFarland, who died of ovarian cancer in 2003. The tower's 49 bells were cast in the Netherlands and transported to Champaign-Urbana at a total cost of $550,000.

Added to it’s elegance is the music that emanates from this artistic structure that keeps you enchanted around the seating area. And if you lie down and look from bottom-to-top perspective (photograph attached) is a WoW factor experience not to be missed while in the Uni premises.

Great place to take photos. Sometimes bell-ringers play songs on the tower. I believe you can also apply for the bell-ringing job if you have some music background.

This is a very imposing structure, built in 2008-2009, modern in its architecture. It is also called the McFarland Carillon. It is 185 feet tall, with 49 bells.

I found it very impressive that this can play 500 pre-programmed songs!

Hearing chimes is something not to be missed, especially on a beautiful fall day in Champaign-Urbana. The concert was an unexpected treat that enhanced the experience.
