New Seating in Hendricks Chapel Will Accommodate Growth and Enhance Accessibility

Recent renovations to Hendricks Chapel continue to make history. In February, People’s Place Café celebrated a grand reopening with a renewed interior and updated menu. In May, central air conditioning was turned on in the main chapel for the first time. As of this week, the main chapel now features new interlocking chairs in place of the first six rows of pews.

“To witness the ongoing growth in religious and spiritual engagement is a delight,” says Hendricks Chapel Dean Brian Konkol. “I am thankful for the outstanding efforts of our chaplains, staff, student leaders and advisors. This latest renovation, which would not be possible without our partners in Campus Planning, Design and Construction, is part of Syracuse University’s larger efforts to foster and support an inclusive, accessible campus of opportunity for a richly diverse student body.”
