Entrance to the Red Herring

The Channing Murray Foundation is known throughout the UIUC campus community for its good music, great food, and the opportunity to engage in nonjudgmental spiritual exploration. Writing, dance and arts workshops flourish, and our chapel hosts a wide array of justice oriented community forums, concerts, poetry slams, and student theatrical productions.

Located on the corner of Oregon and Mathews, Channing Murray welcomes everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious background. We invite you to come and just be yourself and to participate in activities and events that appeal to you.
