Alumni Memorial Chapel

Nestled amidst trees and lawns that slope gently down to the Red Cedar River stands the picturesque Alumni Memorial Chapel. Thousands of Michigan State University students and alumni have selected the chapel for their wedding ceremonies since its dedication on June 7, 1952. Its simple elegance, timbered ceilings, stained glass windows and collegiate Gothic charm are among the reasons many travel from around the world to celebrate weddings, baptisms, and memorials at their alma mater. The chapel was built “in honor of those who served their country” and “in memory of those students and alumni who made the supreme sacrifice.” More than 5,000 alumni and friends of the university raised the initial $200,000 to build the chapel. The Michigan State University Alumni Memorial Chapel seats approximately 190 people. Accommodating all faiths, each ceremony is treated with the same respect and reverence. This commitment to excellence has made countless weddings at the chapel unique and memorable. To reserve the Michigan State University Alumni Memorial Chapel, call1-517-884-8127.
