We worked with Rachel Sommer to coordinate our wedding reception. Rachel was prompt and professional in her emails, and she was a delight during our in-person meetings. The venue itself was excellent, as was all the staff who were onsite. We have zero regrets!Sent on 06/19/2019

Phenomenal experience at this gorgeous venue! We used the outdoor back area for our ceremony, had cocktails on the wraparound terrace and held the reception in the Ballroom. Everything was absolutely perfect. The staff at the Alumni Center is wonderful to work with! I received so many compliments on how wonderful and gorgeous our wedding was!Sent on 05/01/2019
