Alumni House & Visitor Center

The Alumni House & Visitor Center on the north end of the Allendale campus is not only a beautiful manor but also holds significance as a symbol of support and dedication from Grand Valley’s Alumni Association and its supporters. Its availability for use by a wide range of university affiliates, as well as the community for events and meetings, underscores its role as a hub for connection and celebration.

With its capacity to host wedding and social receptions for up to 150 guests, the Alumni House offers a charming setting for such memorable occasions. The solarium and courtyard, described as beautiful, likely provide an elegant backdrop for gatherings, adding a touch of sophistication and ambiance to any event. Such amenities make it an attractive choice for those seeking a distinctive and accommodating venue for their special events.
