Video: Watch the Smith Tower Bell Ring for the First Time in 10 Years

Watch the Video

On Thursday, November 4, students gathered in Bixby Square to celebrate the first ringing of the Smith Tower bell in almost 10 years. After ASPC Senate members found out the bell did work--it was shut off in 2000 after student complaints--an effort was made to start the bell ringing again. The bell will ring every weekday on the 47th minute between 9:47 a.m. and 5:47 p.m. during the school year. Click here for the full details of the story.

To help celebrate this new campus tradition, we offer this video of the party and bell ringing (at 5:47 p.m., natch), which is both celebratory and a little silly.
