Went there for my daughters official signing for her college scholarship. Great venue and was a fun event. If your kid got an athletic scholarship, this is a great place to sign!! Check the calendar for dates. Most sports are Nov 9.

Not well done. Very little of interest and what there was not well presented. Third floor basically plaques on walls. So much more could be done.
