Testimonials

  • I am writing to commend the staff working in Tangeman University Center. Any member of the staff that I had contact with was courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. Staff responded immediately whenever I had any questions or problems and were able to quickly help any of the presenters with technology problems. It was a pleasure working with such a great group of people. I know that sometimes you only hear about problems. I wanted you to know that your staff is remarkable.
    College Board

  • The event was a resounding success, due in no small part to the Conference & Event Services and Catering teams. You overcame a power outage and still managed to get everything set up and ready for us on time and in fine style. The setup of the room was perfect, everything we ordered was spot on and really made an impressive presentation for our guests. The food was incredible, simply put. I cannot tell you how many people came up to us after the event praising the food and asking where we got it. Again, thank you for an incredible job; it’s much appreciated!
    Center for Cooperative Education, Research, and Innovation, University of Cincinnati

  • Many thanks to the Conference & Event Services team and to the operations staff. Staff were absolutely indispensable throughout the entire day. It was the first time in years that the event went off without a hitch and all 31 presentations started on time. Fantastic staff with positive demeanors who bent over backwards to make sure everything was taken care of. We don’t take enough time in the day to say “thanks” and acknowledge great customer service when it’s there. Thanks for all you do.
    Mayerson High School Service-Learning Program

  • Thank you for the excellent work and planning you did for Liz and Greg’s reception. The venue looked great, and we have had so many positive comments. Please also give the chef our compliments.
