Old Main bells ring once again

Just in time for North Central College’s Sesquicentennial, the bells in the iconic Old Main tower are once again sounding chimes.

A team of campus workers recently installed a new computer-controlled system to make the bells operational for the first time in three years. The new system debuted in time to play the National Anthem on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, a date that also marked the beginning of the College’s 150th year.
