History

The college was chartered in 1872 and enrolled its first students in 1878 at Warren Street, in Jersey City, on the present site of the St. Peter's Preparatory School. In September 1918, the college was closed, along with several other Jesuit colleges and high schools, because of declining enrollment in the face of World War I. Although the war ended only two months after its closing, and despite clamoring from alumni, it took until 1930 to re-open the college. The college was temporarily located on Newark Avenue, before moving in 1936 to its current location on Hudson (now Kennedy) Boulevard, between Montgomery Street and Glenwood Avenue.

Recent years have seen much construction for the college. In 1975, the college constructed the Yanitelli Recreational Life Center, a sports complex. Beginning with the 1983 acquisition of its first residence hall, the college has converted four apartment buildings to dormitory use, and constructed two brand new dormitories. Gannon Hall, the science building and one of the first structures on campus, underwent an $8.2 million renovation, bringing it up to state-of-the-art standards. In 2004, the long-awaited pedestrian bridge over Kennedy Boulevard linked the East Campus and the West Campus. As of 2006, the college is embarking on a $50 million capital campaign, designed to raise funds for a new student center.


Athletics

The college fields 17 athletic teams. The men's teams are known as the Peacocks, and the women's teams are the Peahens; Saint Peter's is the only NCAA Division I institution with this mascot. Owing to the school's urban location, the football team plays its games at Caven Point Stadium, and the baseball, softball and soccer teams play at Joseph J. Jaroschak Field, in Lincoln Park.

The women's basketball team has won seven MAAC championships and automatic bids to the NCAA tournament, (1982, 1992, 1993, 1997, 1999, 2000 and 2002); it also won the MAAC championship in 1983 and 1984, years when the MAAC champion did not receive an automatic NCAA tournament berth.


In recent years the basketball program has seen a resurgence, owing much to the success of Keydren "Kee-Kee" Clark '05. In 2004 and 2005, Clark led the nation in points scored per game, becoming just the eighth player to repeat as NCAA Division I scoring champion. On March 4, 2006, Clark became only the seventh NCAA player to score more than 3,000 points in his career; on the next day, he passed Hersey Hawkins to become the sixth-leading scorer of all time. At the time of his final game on March 6, 2006, Clark held the NCAA all-time record for 3-point shots, with 435. A second fourth-year student and a forward on the basketball team, George Jefferson, died on June 21, 2005, due to a previously undiagnosed heart condition.

Peacock mascot

As mentioned above, Saint Peter's College is the only NCAA Division I institution whose mascot is the peacock. This choice was made for several reasons. Primarily, the land on which Saint Peter's now stands was once owned by a man named Michael Pauw, whose last name means "peacock" in Dutch. Second, a section of Jersey City (albeit not encompassing Saint Peter's) is named Pavonia, in reference to the Latinized form of Pauw's name[1]. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA, often pronounced N-C-Double-A ) is a voluntary association of about 1200 institutions, conferences, organizations and individuals that organizes the athletic programs of many colleges and universities in the United States. ...

In pagan and Christian mythology, the peacock is considered to be a symbol of rebirth, much like the phoenix. For Saint Peter's, it is a reference to the closing and reopening of the college in the early 20th century. The phoenix from the Aberdeen Bestiary. ...


At one point in the 1960s, live peacocks roamed the campus. Many institutions within the college derive their name from the peacock:

  • The school newspaper is titled the Pauw Wow.
  • The literary magazine is titled the Pavan.
  • The school's yearbook is titled the Peacock Pie.
  • The dramatic society calls itself Argus Eyes, in reference to Argus "Panoptes", who, according to Greek mythology, had his 100 eyes preserved by Hera in the tail of the peacock.
  • One of the major dining facilities is named the Pavonia Room.

In Greek mythology, Panoptes (the all-seeing) was an epithet for both Helios and Argus. ...
