In a little courtyard, surrounded by sycamores, USC’s smallest chapel has been a haven for worshippers -- and nappers -- for decades.
Looking to get away from the noise? USC’s Little Chapel of Silence is one of the best kept secrets on campus. It was initially dedicated as a Christian chapel, but it is now an interfaith space that hosts worshippers, nappers and even wedding couples.
Step inside this sacred space and you will find six tiny pews and a pair of brass chandeliers. If you are there to pray, you can jot a prayer on a slip of paper and put it in a wooden box that sits on the altar. Each semester, the Office of Religious Life hosts a ceremony where students read these prayers aloud. Then, they burn the prayers, letting the smoke carry them to the heavens.
