Parks Tower was the University's first large-scale dormitory and although sometimes it appears that Parks Tower is taller than the Bell Tower, it is not. While the Bell Tower is 191'5/8" tall and Parks Tower measures 198'7", the Bell Tower is on a elevation of 621' while Parks Tower is on an elevation of 594'6". What all this means is the Bell Tower does in fact clear Parks Tower by 34'6".
