This dynamic new 12,000 SF facility is available for use and rental by the University community of alumni, faculty and staff, students, parents, retirees, Board of Trustees, and departments of the University. The Alumni House features a 150-seat dining room, sitting room, bride’s room, conference room, patio, communications center, and four overnight guest rooms. It also serves as an information center for visitors to the Allendale Campus. On completion of the project, the open facility design meant that kitchen noise was audible in the dining room area. Acoustics By Design was retained to evaluate the noise paths and recommend solutions for a more pleasant dining experience. The project was completed for a total construction cost of $1,500,000.
