Yes. Each year the Student Success Center plays host to many weddings. There is a $2,250 fee which covers the Building Rental, including bridal and groom suites, a building attendant for the duration of your event, and set-up of tables and chairs (furnished by SSC). You will have your choice of either President's Suites A/B/C/D or Press Rooms A/B. The Rental Fee also ensures there will not be any other events scheduled in the building on the day of your wedding.
