John and Jacquelyn Dionne Campus Green
On August 30, 2008, The University of Scranton named the newly created, football-field-sized green at the heart of its campus in honor of Scranton alumni and benefactors John '86 and Jacquelyn Dionne '89.
The new 22,000 square-foot campus green transforms the campus and serves as a spectacular campus gateway to the Patrick & Margaret DeNaples Center.
