"Wow, I cannot compliment the [JBU] University Events coordinators enough. They were instrumental in helping make our event a success and making everything work seamlessly throughout our days on the lovely JBU campus. From the very beginning of planning, 6 months out from the event date, the staff showed their desire to make our event a success and worked with us on making it a truly flawless 5 days. We owe them our thanks for all they did before, during, and after our stay."
—Norman King, South Central Rotary Youth Exchange

"JBU is a fantastic location for large events! They hosted our national tournament with grace, enthusiasm, and a can-do attitude that made us feel incredible welcome and cared for! The facility is lovely, and the staff is great to work with."

"There are no words as to how accommodating JBU and their staff were to us. We just held our annual Leadership Conference in the Simmons Great Hall, and we had a wonderful time. The leaders were even raving after the conference via social media about their wonderful time. Thank you JBU for making our conference a great success. We would definitely consider holding another conference at JBU."
—Natalie Foster, Events Coordinator for Mary & Martha/DaySpring Cards

"My daughter’s wedding reception hosted in the Simmons Great Hall was everything we hoped for. It was the perfect venue for us. The beautiful and spacious room was elegantly decorated to suit my daughter’s specific taste. It conveyed perfectly the style she hoped to reflect during the ceremony and was carried through into the reception. The food prepared by the onsite caterer was fresh and delicious. We received so many compliments from the guests regarding the quality of the food. The reception was handled so well that it allowed us to completely relax and enjoy the wonderful day with our family and friends as we celebrated the marriage of our daughter."
