The University’s Fine Arts Building is home to a 2400-pipe organ, a behemoth of an instrument that has seen many students sit down to play since it was first purchased by the University in 1974 for $100,000.

The organ was made by the von Beckerath organ makers, a company based in Hamburg, Germany, and founded by Rudolf von Beckerath. His organs stand in churches in the United States and Quebec.
