In the history of Baldwin Wallace University, only one cow can claim to have attended chapel on campus. The Plain Dealer reported that the befuddled bovine was led into the chapel during the height of Halloween activity on campus. Security that evening was provided by select students, entrusted with keeping an eye on the various festivities taking place. It was during this opportune time frame that the cow was stolen from a nearby farm and released into Recitation’s (present day Wheeler) third-floor chapel. Upon discovery, the cow was blindfolded and backed down two flights of stairs into the open air. Rumors that cows cannot be led downstairs are greatly exaggerated.
