The University of Scranton dedicated and named three prominent spaces in Brennan Hall in September 2008. These spaces were dedicated based on the generous leadership and philanthropy of three of the University’s most prominent alumni: Jack Sweeney ’61, Frank Pearn ’83 and Harry Rose ’65.
The Jack and Jean Blackledge Sweeney Classroom was dedicated on the first floor.
On the second floor, the Pearn Auditorium was dedicated. The auditorium is used for various lectures, classes and presentations within the Kania School of Management.
The Rose Room was dedicated on the 5th Floor and is used for lectures, dinners, and other campus/community events.
