black and white Wedding

The Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center is more than a building. It is a story that continues to be written. Thousands of individuals came together to make the dream a reality. They put their hearts into their work, and the result was more than a series of conference rooms attached to a banquet hall. They created an elegant venue that, while functional, was also warm and welcoming. Now, whether you are a Maryland alumnus or a friend, you can write yourself into the narrative.
