Testimonials

Testimonials


"Conference and Event Services at The University of Scranton exceeds our expectations year after year. The Conference team is a pleasure to work with and see that all our needs are met. If you're seeking the perfect camp or conference location in Scranton, look no further." 

"Excellent customer relations, attention to detail and a sense of caring are the hallmarks of The University of Scranton's summer camps and conferences program."

"The University of Scranton was an excellent location for our week-long annual conference, Energypath. The campus was large enough to accommodate 300 to 400 attendees and small enough to walk around the campus with ease. The conference and event staff were immensely helpful during the planning process and made themselves available 24/7 throughout our conference. Our event needs, including dorm and classroom space, as well as outdoor space for hands-on training activities, were met perfectly by the campus. We received many compliments from our conference attendees about the facilities, signage, and seamless flow of the event. The combination of attentive staff and first-class facilities make this a perfect location for any event. I look forward to future Energypaths being held at The University of Scranton."



"We've had other sites where we had great first impressions--only to have a disappointing experience when we arrived. HT's experience at The University of Scranton was every bit as good as our first impressions. I'm grateful. Thank you!"

"I want to extend my personal thanks and the appreciation of the AREA II Board to you and your entire staff for all of your work in making our recent conferences a huge success. ....From the beginning of the process, your enthusiastic support and assurance that you and the University staff would be able to meet our needs put me at ease. Indeed everything was delivered as promised! Despite not having hosted a handbell event before, the "can do" attitude of all involved helped us to accomplish a most successful event. We enjoyed our time at The University of Scranton and work with your staff. ....it is certainly my recommendation and hope that The University of Scranton becomes part of the regular cycle for our biennial conferences. Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality! Chris Braden, Chair - AGHER, Area II
