    The events staff was so helpful and very responsive to the many questions that come with booking a venue and the ensuing planning. Working with a student coordinator was also a very pleasant experience, Rebecca was so eager and positive! I can't say enough nice things about working with the Union. Not to mention the beautiful interior and exterior architecture provide many wonderful photo ops

    I recommend this location and catering. The staff were very helpful explaining services and setting up the schedule for the day. They assisted in planning for the back-up option for the outdoor ceremony. The event planners were easy to communicate with when we had planning questions and available most of the day to address issues if they occurred.
