I can't begin to thank you for allowing us to take over your magnificent campus for two days. The food rivaled the Four Seasons and I really mean that... no exaggeration. Everyone felt the same. The dorm was wonderful… Gorgeous. But the most important thing, the thing that struck me, was the people. Every single one of those who were helping us couldn't have been more lovely. Michelle and Alice went beyond the call of duty. They made us feel welcome and couldn't do enough for us.”
