- I needed a private meeting space for an off-site retreat with my staff. Springfield College was a great location. It was easy to get to for people coming from all directions. Free parking was a plus. Our meeting room was quiet and comfortable. Catering delivered plenty coffee, juice, fruit and pastries. At lunch we had the opportunity to walk around the beautiful campus and we enjoyed eating in the Cheney Hall because everyone could choose what they liked and we had fun comparing it to our college days. I will definitely contact Springfield College the next time I am planning a staff meeting.
