Photo: Some Kind of Bell Tower?

During the years I spent at Trent University, one of my enduring questions centered around the bell tower at Champlain College; just what is the deal with that thing? I mean, they call it a bell tower, but to the best of my knowledge there's no bell in it. In function it's practically more of a gateway, as you must pass beneath it to get to the parking lot. I like it as an architectural piece purely on its own merits, sure; I just wonder if it has any purpose beyond the aesthetic.

  1. This is obviously a screenshot from a remake of a 90's shooter. No one else could make architecture that ugly and nonsensical.

  2. How typical, coming from an LEC man. :P
