    The perfect venue.

    I'm so glad that we decided to go with the Brown Ballroom in the Bone Student Center. We worked with Mollie who was absolutely amazing to work with. She was prompt anytime we had a question; which we had a lot of questions.

    It was a relief to have the venue all figured out and know there wouldn't be any issues the day of.

    Bone Student Center's reply:

    Kayla,

    Thank you for the great review. It was great getting to know you and Sam and helping to make your day extra special. Thanks for choosing the Bone Student Center for your ceremony and reception.

    All the best - Mollie

    I can't say enough wonderful things about the service we received from ISU Bone Student Center for our venue and catering. It was by far one of the most accommodating, flexible, and budget friendly options in the Bloomington/Normal area. The staff was professional and quick to respond to any question or concern I had. They showed a genuine interest in making sure our wedding day was everything we dreamed of, and they took a lot of stress off our load by being on top of our planning needs! We received so many compliments from our guests on the food and decor. I highly recommend talking to ISU for your reception and catering needs!

    My husband and I have nothing by wonderful things to say about the staff and facility at the Bone Student Center! The team we worked with to plan our wedding reception was very nice, professional, and went above and beyond for us. We used the Brown Ballroom and they transformed it into our dream reception! The room looked absolutely beautiful! If you are looking for a banquet hall that you can personalize and transform the space, this is the venue for you!!
