    Great place to have a reception!

    We were very satisfied with our whole experience at the Eberhard Center. The day itself went smoothly. The staff made it so that we could thoroughly enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about anything. They set up all our decorations, but still let us come check out the set up and it was just how I envisioned it to be. Leading up to the day, we were well informed of everything we would need to know. Kelly was very professional and personable and great to work with.

    Superb Value

    My fiance planned our wedding in 5 months and chose this venue because of awesome downtown location, unique space and value. The GVSU team was phenomenal to work with and our wedding reception was such a fun party that I will treasure!
