Medbury Hall/Scott Chapel

Originally constructed for Drake's Bible College (later known as the Divinity School), this building now houses the Philosophy and Religion and Law, Politics and Society departments, along with Drake's Honors Program. Medbury's architect Eero Saarinen believed that architecture should "stimulate man's imagination or give man confidence or make him feel proud," and this building's use of light and space make the designer's intentions evident. The building's spacious lounge continues to foster community and learning by providing a space for everyday interactions. Medbury Hall is connected by a covered walkway to the Oreon E. Scott Chapel.
