Pieri Gymnasium

Home to the Bulldogs' men's and women's basketball and volleyball teams, Pieri Gymnasium provides one of New England's best home court advantages. With its intitimate feel and seating for less than 1,000 fans, spectators get the chance to be right on top of the action and provide Dean with a raucous atmosphere.

The court, recently renamed for former longtime Director of Athletics, John A. Jackson, is located adjacent to Memorial Hall, a room commemorating the rich athletic history of the College with its trophies, placques and historical images.
