Ceremony Venues

Choose from five unique indoor and outdoor ceremony venues – each with their own special features. Plan your reception on campus and experience our creative and innovative cuisine from Le Jeune Chef Restaurant.

In order to hold your ceremony on campus, the bride or groom must be a graduate of Penn College; a son or daughter of a graduate of the College; a full-time student at the College; a retiree, faculty, or staff member, or their children.

Saturday dates are generally available, with the exclusion of April, early May, December, and during certain College special events. The Madigan Library is only available late May through July 31. Dates may be requested in the distant future, but reservations can be confirmed no earlier than one year in advance.
