The War Memorial Chapel is located on Drillfield Drive. The chapel is a tribute from alumni and friends to the sons of Virginia Tech who made the ultimate sacrifice in our nation's wars. This memorial is a shrine to fortify education with worship and inspiration. It was conceived as a central campus structure, giving visual evidence of the ethical standards which are traditional at Virginia Tech and are based upon the honor system. It is dedicated to those who gave their all; yet it is designed to inspire the living, especially the Virginia Tech graduates of the future. The chapel's permanent features avoid creedal symbolism, yet the space easily accommodates events such as weddings, memorial services, initiations, military commissioning, departmental commencement ceremonies, concerts, religious services, and meetings. The Owens Banquet Room is an elegant, spacious ballroom that can accommodate up to 400 guests. It is equipped with state-of-the-art sound equipment and a baby grand piano.
