More than 350 students, alumni, University leaders, and key donors turned out Sunday to dedicate the Paul L. Locatelli, S.J. Student Activity Center, named for the revered, late chancellor and former president of Santa Clara University.
The 16,000 square-foot, two-story $7 million building was described Sunday as a “dynamic and handsome” symbol of Locatelli’s dedication to student success. The ceremony, which was at times celebratory and at times tearful, took place Sunday, Oct. 10 at 1 p.m.
“Father Paul Locatelli led this University for 20 years with boundless energy and consistent concern for students,” said SCU President Michael Engh, S.J., who noted that the building was the first new one in more than 40 years built specifically for student use. Read more.
