**History:**

The Dominican Center holds a beautiful chapel. The smaller pews in the front face each other so that the people could sing face to face. The arches of the ceiling were made so that voices would be echoed and that microphones and speakers would not be needed. Also, the red coloring in the stained glass windows is one of the rarest shades of red that could be found. Finally, it is believed that if you were to look down near the Hudson River from the Dominican Center entrance, it is the best view on campus.
