The 127,000 square feet, five-story building is by far the most popular hub of student life on the Queens campus. This $77 million student-centered structure has been a dream of the university and has been designed to enhance the learning environment and student life on campus.
Named after Peter and Peg D’Angelo and their family, who both serve as esteemed alumni and longstanding benefactors of St. John’s University, the D’Angelo Center reflects St. John's focus on providing the highest quality campus and academic services — and the loyalty of graduates like Peter and Peg D’Angelo, whose generosity made the Center possible. Peter D’Angelo ‘78MBA is a University trustee. Margaret LaRosa D’Angelo ‘70Ed chairs The School of Education’s leadership committee.
“Now we have two places where our community gathers. We have St. Thomas More Church where we gather as a community of faith, and we have the D’Angelo Center, where we gather as a community of learning and a community that shares life together,” said Rev. Harrington, C.M. “My hope and my prayer is that the D’Angelo Center will radiate for many, many years that very special spirit – which is the St. John’s spirit.”
