NDSU Alumni Center Wins Couples Choice Award

The Harry D. McGovern Alumni Center at NDSU won a Couples Choice Award from

Center Director Amanda Sosa said this is the first such award the Alumni Center has received since she started at NDSU three years ago.

"I think when people see we've reached that award, they automatically think 'This is a venue that takes care of their couples, that strives for excellence and great customer service,'" she said. "So by winning this award, it just reinforces the fact that we've been doing a good job."

Sosa said after each wedding, Alumni Center staff sends a request to brides and grooms asking them to fill out a survey on, and the winners of this award are chosen based on these reviews.

"For us it's reward enough to see the smiles on their faces the day of and see the family and the friends all come together to celebrate that day, but to be acknowledged for it by those brides and grooms themselves makes it even better," she said.

The Wedding Wire Couples Choice Awards recognize the top five percent of local wedding professionals from the Wedding Wire Network who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism based on feedback from couples, according to the website. The Alumni Center was the only winner in the Ceremony and Reception Venue category for North Dakota this year.
