Small gears can be seen turning the clocks of McConnell Tower. Although the chimes can be heard all over campus, they do not resonate in the Hurley Administration Building where they are housed.

A small spiral stair case leads up into McConnell Tower. Before the bells were taken down, three employees were tasked with the maintenance and upkeep of the clock tower.

Instead of a bell, eight large speakers chime on a schedule every day. The bells, known as a carillon, were replaced in 1972 by computer chips with chime noises recorded on them.
