On September 22, 1974 the center was dedicated in honor of Bishop Joseph McShea (1907-1991), first Bishop of the Diocese of Allentown, whose idea it was to build a Catholic college in the Diocese. The center provides an opportunity for relaxation, out-of-class discussions, socializing, meetings and recreation.
