The Dorthy and Arthur Dahl Chapel and auditorium was designed by Monmouth College graduate Dan Everett Waid (Class of 1887), who was chief architect for the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in New York from 1902 to 1933 and served as president of the American Institute of Architects. Waid was influential in the development of the Monmouth College campus, designing buildings and offering professional advice throughout his distinguished career. The building was completely renovated in 2003 but maintains many of its original architectural features.
