Extreme makeover - Around the Arch
September 2008 Issue
The Chapel Bell got a makeover this summer while workers refurbished the tower and mechanism that holds the bell. The work was necessary because fans gave it a vigorous workout following last year’s victory over Florida, causing the 700-pound bronze bell to fall a few feet onto a wooden platform that kept it from reaching the ground. Quick repairs allowed the bell to ring for the rest of the football season, but more extensive work was needed to ensure long-term security.

The refurbished bell was expected to be reinstalled in time for UGA’s first football game on Aug. 30.
