  • 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.

  • Not sure who to send this to as I am sure you already know but you and your staff are awesome. This trip was so well planned from the beginning thank you for all of your help to make this possible. The food staff was helpful, flexible and friendly! The event staff was great and helped us in every way, we didnt have a need that wasn't accommodated, so thank you! We are hoping to do this again next year and as long as we do, we will be coming back to Springfield.

  • I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for all of your assistance leading up to our training this past week, as well as everything you did for us those two days we were there, including making last minute copies for us. Your facility was perfect for the training and everyone was very pleased with the set up, space, and technical assistance. Thank you for considering our healthy message in helping us with the catering options-you really understood what we were looking for! Thanks again for your willingness and ability to meet us early that first day, it is very helpful to have that extra time to set up and make sure everything is working smoothly.
