Long Description:
As best described by the University of the Incarnate Word's website:

"Replicating the illustrious steeple of the Motherhouse Chapel, which peaks through the arbors of the campus and overlooks the city, the Marjorie Jordan Carillon Plaza and clock tower serves as the campus' centerpiece. Dedication ceremonies took place on November 22, 1998 as Rev. Greg Nevlud blessed the carillon plaza, along with University President Louis J. Agnese, the Board of Trustees and the donor herself, Marjorie Ann Jordan.
