undisputed hub of student life, St. John’s University’s D’Angelo
Center (DAC) continues to earn industry acclaim.
The building won an Outstanding Design Award from American
School and University Magazine and was featured in the
publication’s Architectural Portfolio for 2012. According to the
magazine, the DAC expertly combines academic and student services
to create an inviting, vibrant educational environment.
“The state-of-the-art D’Angelo Center has become the heart of
our Queens campus, offering a space where the scholarly and social
aspects of our students’ lives come together and friendships are
fostered,” said Martha K. Hirst, Executive Vice President and Chief
Operating Officer at St. John’s. “Inspired by the Great Hall at
Ellis Island, the architectural beauty of the building is matched
by the warmth inside.”
Opened in 2009, the DAC is named for loyal alumni benefactors
Margaret L. (’70Ed) and Peter P. D’Angelo ’78MBA, ’06HON.
