  • Thank you for hosting The Daily Record Women’s Leadership Summit today. The Daily Record team commented on how accommodating everyone on campus was-- from pre-event planning through today’s special event. Thank you for representing Coppin State University in a myriad of ways: from helping exhibitors from their cars to the Talon Center to providing a nourishing meal to making each attendee feel warm and welcome. Many thanks for all of the ways you exhibited leadership and collaboration, I truly appreciate all of your efforts.
    Diana, March 2019

  • Thanks so much for helping execute the 12/1 event for The Baltimore Times Newspaper and Times Community Services. I really appreciate everything you and the whole Coppin team did to help make the day a success!
    Terry, December 2018

  • It would be remiss if we did not formally thank you for Friday’s event. We have been receiving many accolades about this conference and we are overjoyed. Also, please thank your support team for whatever role they played in making this day a success. Again, thank you.
    Cherlyn, October 2018

  • Hello! I wanted to say thank you to you and your team for collaborating with our office to make a successful event! 
    Jessica, August 2018

  • Thank you so much for making an amazing week possible for us! Our students and parents left with glowing faces, and many of them were particularly taken by the dorms and campus.
    Peter, June 2018

  • I just wanted to let the both of you know that my husband's 50th birthday party turned out wonderful. Everyone had a really good time. The room setup, the food, the servers all were excellent. The servers were very friendly and attentive to whatever we needed. I will definitely recommend The Tawes Center and use your facility again for any future parties. Thanks again for helping make this party a night to remember for my husband.

  • I want to thank you so much for your outstanding service! I truly appreciated your suggestions and expertise, without being pushy. You did so, with professionalism, patience, kindness and care, as if you were planning the event for one of your family members; and I appreciate it so very much. From suggesting having the shower at Coppin, to the slideshow, the music, the candelabras; your touch put the event over the top. I don’t know what I would have done without you. When I tell you my daughter, her husband, our family and friends were just ecstatic about the venue, they were in awe. We had such an amazing time! I must admit, I would have never thought about having an event here (not sure why) but from now on Coppin’s Events & Conference services will be my first choice for an event. Demetrius did his thing as well. I wish you could have heard the comments; this is so nice, I didn’t know Coppin was like this, I want to have something here. This day was so special for me and my family, you knew that and you ensured that it was; for that I’m so grateful. You are definitely where you need to be; event planning. Again Dawnica, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you did for me and my family. Until my next event, take care!
