Client Feedback

Thank you for choosing Iona! We would greatly appreciate feedback on your experience!

"St. John Fisher College’s Executive Leadership Doctoral Program has had the pleasure of using the services and spaces on the Iona campus for the last three years. We use the Murphy Center classrooms, Burke Lounge, and the La Penta End Zone regularly. The Burke Lounge and End Zone are clean, bright, airy spaces with more than adequate technology support. Once a year we use the Murphy Auditorium, a large, spacious, more formal setting with an audiovisual system for our hooding/awards ceremony, as well as the Arrigoni Center, a classic and unique space, for an annual reception. All spaces are enhanced by the availability of visitor parking and on-site security who are friendly and informative. The Iona support staff work hard to ensure that we are well serviced. It is the people of Iona who cheerfully give their support to you that makes any occasion successful!"
