With the ribbon cutting during Homecoming 2012, EOU is proud to open the David E. Gilbert Center! The David E. Gilbert Event Center provides North Eastern Oregon an amazing and unique location, perfect for Weddings, Receptions, Conferences, Proms, Holiday Parties, and other special events!

Located in the renovated Ackerman Gymnasium, the Gilbert Center offers plenty of room for a wedding reception, a sit down meal, and dancing. Beautiful photos can be created from the outdoor garden and landscaping available all over campus and within the Gilbert Center.

The Gilbert Center also provides a comfortable space for workshops and conferences. Afterwards, change the Gilbert Center over for a happy hour or dinner party and add our cocktail tables for an additional fee.

During your event, our on-site catering company can offer you an excellent and memorable dining experience. We can even offer beer and wine in our facilities. The Gilbert Center is also equipped with a state of the art sound system that includes different audio and visual options as well as a wireless microphone.

The System Includes:

* a wireless microphone

* mp3 and ipod connection

* cd player

* hook ups for external equipment such as amps

The Stenard Garden may also be booked with the Gilbert Center. This location is great outside reception area!
