I knew I wanted to use this venue a couple years prior to my wedding. I was a part of an event inside the stunning ballroom. This venue is not only aesthetically pleasing, it is extremely affordable with a great package compared to other local venues. I got so many compliments on both my event and the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni center. One of my guests even inquired about planning her 65th birthday there. In addition to my wedding, my baby shower was held here a year prior. If I need to plan another event, this venue would be my first choice AGAIN. The staff, specifically Sienna (Event Sales Coordinator) and Ali (Event Manager), were very professional and AMAZING to work with.

The Alumni Center was the perfect place to host our wedding. The staff was incredibly helpful and patient with our many requests for additional amenities. The price was quite reasonable given the extent of the space we were given: in addition to the ballroom segment, you also get the entire atrium, rotunda, and patio reserved for the entire 8 hours of the reservation. The spaces are open and so gorgeous, we didn't even need to decorate besides a few flowers. We easily fit our 100 guests in this space (garden for the ceremony, 1 ballroom segment for the reception) and could have fit a few dozen more. We couldn't recommend this space enough for your ceremony and reception.
