Rice Bell Tower at Sunset

Rice Bell Tower

Rising to the sky just outside of the Zondervan Library's main entrance is the Rice Bell Tower, presented to Taylor by Garnet I. Rice.

One of the most distinctive architectural elements on the campus, the Rice Bell Tower is 71 feet, 10 inches in height.  It was dedicated in memory of Garnet's husband, Raymond E. Rice.

The twin spires of the tower symbolize the integration of faith and learning. At Taylor, we seek to understand more about our Creator, His creation, and our place in His plan of redemption by infusing Christianity into every class.

Not only will all Taylor students take a series of classes devoted to learning about the Bible, Christian history, and Christian doctrine, they will see how God interacts with every discipline. Each student becomes a lifelong learner and a truth-seeker—striving for spiritual maturity, responsibility, stewardship of our gifts, and a Christ-like character as a professional.
