The venue was perfect for us. We wanted a place that was classic and that we could have an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception and after looking a bunches of places that only filled one or the other, it was wonderful to find this place was just perfect for everything we wanted.

From the first time that I had contact with this venue everyone was wonderful. We ended up working with Amanda and I could not say enough wonderful things about her and the staff at the venue. Amanda always went above and beyond and made ever effort to help me out, I will definitely miss getting to email with her, she was one of my biggest fans while planning our wedding.

Everything that day went perfectly and it was wonderful to have the event staff of the venue there to help out. Amanda even ran the rehearsal in the very hot August afternoon! And her event staff worked the sound for us and handled any issue that came up, even helping with decorations!

If there was any "con" to the venue, it would be that there are only a few options for catering due to this being part of the university still, however since the venue works with these caterers directly it worked out amazingly that many times that if I had a question for the caterer, Amanda either had the answer or worked with the caterer (MSUM Catering) directly for me. Also, if you are looking to have keg beer that isn't an option either, however Green Mill had a large selection of bottled beers to choose from, and when it's a wedding, I would hope people wouldn't be all that picky and just enjoy the time there! :)

Overall, I couldn't have created a better venue myself. And there is nothing better than a venue that has an amazing staff that becomes so endearing to you that you know you will have to make a point to stop by again!

I hope you all find this useful.

My husband and I booked the NDSU Alumni Center for our ceremony and reception because we wanted everything in the same place and it worked wonderfully! We had the entire venue to ourselves from 10a to 12:30a. The actual Alumni Center itself is very pretty and hardly needs any decorations. There are rooms upstairs to get ready in and there are plenty of places at the Alumni Center or across the street at the University to take pictures. The staff is very helpful, but not as prompt as I would like in returning phone calls and e-mails since several of the staff do not work everyday. On the day of my wedding, there were three staff present for most of the ceremony and reception. They were very helpful and even assisted with setting up some of the decorations. There are no hotels within walking distance if you are having out of town guests, but we booked a shuttle service that worked great. Overall this venue is great and I would highly recommend it!

Amanda at the Alumni Center was just absolutely amazing to work with. Super responsive and extremely helpful in the whole process especially since we were planning our wedding overseas. Would recommend to anyone to utilize the venue for any type of events even if it's not wedding related.

The venue was perfect, and the staff was wonderful - especially the day of. We had a game of bags out in the courtyard and around 10 p.m., it began to rain. Jennie made her way out in the rain to bring items inside so they wouldn't get drenched! Exceeded expectations. Leading up to the wedding, Jennie also answered all of our questions and put any stresses we had at ease.

My only criticism is responsiveness. Our coordinator Jennie only worked Tuesdays and Thursdays, so she wasn't able to reply to emails on other days. She did warn us of this ahead of time (so we were prepared). Other venue contacts, however, were equally as unresponsive. We set our date with Amanda, and I almost wanted to cancel, because of how difficult she was to get a hold of - didn't return emails or calls for days/weeks. I'm so glad, we stuck with the venue though, because it turned out simply amazing!

We had our wedding ceremony and grooms dinner at the Ndsu Alumni and should have had are reception, but are numbers were to high to have dinner and dance at the alumni. The service and attentiveness was amazing, everything I would have hoped for and above! The staff at the alumni are so accommodating. They helped every step of the way. Our wedding was beautiful. Thank you ndsu alumni for making our day perfect. Highly recommend them for any kind of event. I'm sure all the caterers are great however, MSUM is who we used for grooms dinner and it was perfect.
