After about thirty years in the basement of Doyle Hall, the Teaching and Learning Center at St. Bonaventure University has moved across campus to the first floor of Plassmann Hall. This transition is one piece of big changes that have been occurring in the academic building.

This Day in Bonaventure History

By Joe Pinter, News Editor, @JPinter93

September 17, 1983

The Bonaventure chapel was built in 1960 and dedicated as the Friary Chapel on July 16, 1961. But it was on this day that the chapel was rededicated as the University Chapel. The friary would later move from Doyle Hall to its present location.

The chapel and nearly everything it contains has special meaning. It has numerous paintings of significant moments in Franciscan history. A lot of Saint Bonaventure’s life is portrayed in the stained-glass windows.

The rest of Doyle Hall remains to this day as student dormitories, office spaces, and houses both the Wellness Center and the Teaching and Learning Center.
