Cathy was very attentive - she noticed that we needed an extension cord for our laptop and even taped it to the floor. The events staff also brought in an extra small table to allow for a "sign-in" area for attendees.

Overall a very nice experience. The catering staff went above & beyond the call of duty when we were "running out" of food. Many thanks to all the staff that contributed to our event.
-Academic Technology Services
The building manager, Greg I believe is his name, was incredibly helpful and polite as usual. This was a more complicated show than I am used to running, due to more equipment requests/sound check requirements. Tom, the technician who helped out, did a fantastic job and was always available when we needed him to set up or test out equipment.
-Take The Mic
It is always a pleasure working with the University Student Centers. Any request we needed, they were there to help, even last minute requests. Our biggest issue with trash/recyclables and the Event Services staffed helped us out a lot in disposing of that.
-Alpha Phi Omega
Our technician was WONDERFUL!!!! He was so helpful and so kind!

I was extremely pleased with the service I received for the symposium. This was the first event I have planned, and everyone was very helpful (and patient!) throughout the process. Our laptop's mouse died right before the program started, and the technician immediately came to our rescue with a spare computer. Thank you!

I think 209/211 is one of my favorite places on campus. It's so flexible. I may consider using it more than the spaces I've used before (I just hope it's available!).

The only issue we had was that the piano had a padlocked cover, which I don't think anyone realized, but the event services staff was wonderful and fixed that as soon as they could. I thought that everyone we encountered was wonderful, and I would definitely give them all a gold star!
