For years, the “bells” of the campanile – and music for occasional campus dances piped through the tower’s speakers – were operated via a magnetic tape machine in Cowles Auditorium. The lines for the bells were inadvertently cut in the 1990s, when The Loop was dug up for the installation of fiber-optic cable to provide Internet access in the residence halls. Since then, the bells have been computer-operated from the library.
