The Lady Huntingdon Amphitheater is a beautiful site for any function, as the marsh provides the backdrop for the stage. The main seating area can be set up with chairs only (theater style) or with tables and chairs for a dining experience.

The Burroughs-Lawton Patio is located across from The Berne and is an open patio space between Burroughs and Lawton Halls – two signature buildings on campus. The Patio is connected to Tribble Plaza by a walkway, and using both areas provides the flexibility of a L-shaped event with ease of flow for your guests.
