The NDSU Alumni Center offers a singular combination of modern architecture and unrivaled hospitality that makes the venue a favorite host for weddings in the area! As you approach the building, you and your guests will be greeted by two towering brick reliefs of stampeding bison, as well as a beautiful weathervane. This striking facade makes a statement before you even enter. Imagine exchanging your vows shaded by a romantic arbor on the airy brick terrace or saying your “I do’s” with a charming gazebo as your backdrop! Move indoors to celebrate, taking advantage of the building’s epic two-story atrium for your reception. This stunning space, named the Diederich Atrium in 2004, provides several points of architectural interest, including overhead skylights, expansive windows, and large glass doors that go out to the terrace. Whether you’re enjoying being bathed in sunlight streaming in from the skylights in the atrium or sipping wine beneath the stars on the lovely terrace, the NDSU Alumni Center is sure to create a memorable experience for your most joyous occasion!
