Testimonials

  • "The use of Iona College for our Summer Work/Travel Program Housing helped to provide a true cultural experience for our program participants. Being able to live and socialize on an actual college campus provided experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. Iona helped to make a large world feel much smaller for our group cultural exchange students living and working in the USA."
    Kasey Simon, President United Work and Travel

  • "It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Iona Conference Services! We have held numerous workshops at both the Main and Rockland campuses over the past 5 years. As a small non-profit organization that trains speech pathologists, The PROMPT Institute needs a venue that is professional, and well organized, with people who are willing to accommodate our needs. The communication and support that we have received has been outstanding, and the feedback from our attendees reflects the kind of care and attention that has been given to each of our events at both campuses. Iona Conference Center has been an invaluable resource for us and we look forward to holding many more workshops in the future."
    Suzanne Bremer, Workshop Coordinator
