Summer Conferences & Camps Testimonials

Upward Bound Central
St. Norbert College exceeds our expectations! The staff is welcoming, flexible, and knowledgeable when it comes to hosting summer camps and special events. In addition to the great scenery and atmosphere at St. Norbert, the skilled faculty and staff make the campus an excellent place to spend the summer.

Michael Thielke, Upward Bound
There are two main reasons why weve chosen St. Norbert College to host our summer program. The first is St. Norberts staff. Everyone weve met, from grounds people to department directors, have been very accommodating, helpful, professional and courteous. Conference services is proactive, helping us plan activities, making suggestions for the best spaces for what we need, and quickly solving problems as they arise. The second reason is the facilities. The fully-wired classrooms are topnotch and allow us to work with our students in ways we haven’t been able to on other campuses. The computer labs are great. Did I mention the beautiful campus? Or the fantastic food?

Jim Morgan, Wisconsin Business World
Wisconsin Business World has a long history with St. Norbert College. Since the early 80s, we have been bringing hundreds of high school students to the campus every summer and it has been a great experience – both for our program and the kids.

Mark Thurwanger, conference director, Fellowship for the Improvement of Educational Leadership 
The Fellowship for the Improvement of Educational Leadership (FIEL) annual conference has been held at St. Norbert since its inception. We return to St. Norbert each year due to the ease, convenience and tremendous facilities available. The St. Norbert team is very efficient and easy to work with to arrange logistics and is supportive of our groups mission. The facilities at St. Norbert are top-notch. Their cafeteria, dorm room, meeting rooms and Bemis Center create a professional yet relaxed environment for our attendees that travel from across the United States to gain professional development and conversation.

Serving as director of the conference, my primary focus is the logistics of the conference. All of the individuals from St. Norbert are ready to help arrange logistics of the meeting rooms, establishing times for meals, room assignments and large-group meeting spaces. The cafeteria staff has been willing to explore menu options for our group that cover the wide range of interests for our attendees. Once on campus, the service continues with their maintenance staff being prepared to solve any problem, and the individuals I have worked with in arranging the conference are available to help with the last-minute details. The Bemis Center employees are always available to assist with technology needs, meeting space or to provide assistance in a variety of needs to our attendees.

St. Norbert has been wonderful to work with and our attendees look forward to returning year after year. If you are looking for a place with wonderful people, facilities and positive atmosphere, St. Norbert should be a place to take a close look at during your decision-making process.
