Rush Rhees Library at the University of Rochester is a few minutes’ walk from the Simon Graduate School of Business. The library houses more than 3 million items (some dating back to 1850), including collections that make up the Business and Government Information Library used by students in the Simon School, which offers full-time MBA, part-time MBA, executive MBA, and undergraduate business programs. Rush Rhees was dedicated in 1930 and named after the university president from 1900 to 1935. The tower is 186 feet high and houses the Hopeman Carillon, 50 bells weighing 6,668 pounds that were imported from Holland and collectively make up one of the largest musical instruments in the country.
