Opened in 1982, Bauman Auditorium seats 1,150 persons for chapel, theatrical productions, special lectures, as well as band, choir, and orchestra concerts. Chapel is held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and is a required part of student life. Bauman also hosts "Greenroom," the student-led chapel on Fridays that is not required but well-attended.
