Living in community is part of the unique St. Bonaventure experience. The Marchiori Pavilion is a new gathering space on campus where community members can engage in the power of conversation and reflection.

I thought I was coming to St. Bonaventure to play basketball but it was so much more. The people, the professors and the school — they changed my life. I will forever keep St. Bonaventure in my heart.
