  • We had a fantastic experience at the ISU Alumni Center. Bry and her staff were incredibly kind and helpful. She took care of everything and kept us on schedule. We would recommend the ISU Alumni Center to anyone looking for a wedding ceremony and/or reception venue. The building is beautiful, and both being ISU alumni, my husband and I loved the ISU décor and charm. Our wedding day was perfect and it was all thanks to Bry and her staff!
