We are VERY pleased to acquire the Ballroom at the University Student Union. It is on the Second Floor of the Union. There is elevator service, as well as a flowing stairway. The Ballroom gives the event a large high ceiling, air-conditioned space with a full stage. The campus side of the Student (City) Union has recently been remodeled giving the North area a windowed view of the beautiful Broyhill Fountain and green space to the North. The downtown location allows a fine selection in restaurants within walking distance.



Also within a 2 block walk is Claes Oldenberg's 'Torn Notebook' sculpture which is to be, if weather provides, an excellent location for the World Juggling Day Toss-Up.
