  • “I think the facility is great and the staff is outstanding. Assume I wrote 5 paragraphs of rave review here :) Now for the constructive feedback:
  • “Sometimes we are working as a group and need the ability to connect a computer not at the podium to the displays – a longer cable or extension would greatly help that rather than having each person unplug from their seat and move their laptop up to the instructor’s podium.  Also, sometimes not all network jacks are active (in the floor), but the IT staff is always willing to solve the problems when asked – I’m not sure if this is explicitly stated anywhere in the information provided to meeting organizers.” November 2014
  • “Thank you for your excellent and cordial service!” November 2014
  • “Very clean, fresh and inviting facility.” November 2014
  • “Great Service! Always willing to accommodate in any way possible! Great Staff!” October 2014
  • “I really appreciate that the temperature of the room is always perfect. Too many facilities keep it way too cold. Still an issue is the fact that the lights will not remain on for more than 20 minutes at a time. This does create a constant disruption during the presentations. It would be nice if this could be fixed once and for all.” October 2014
  • “Awesome!!!!! We definitely will be back. Thanks again to everyone who helped to make our meeting a success.” October 2014
  • “It was difficult for participants on the telephone to hear everyone in the room (Room 158).  Participants could hear some people but not others, seems like it was dependent as to where the person speaking was in the room.” October 2014
  • “Thank you for helping ensure our event went off without a hitch!” September 2014
  • “Helpful and accommodating! The staff at UMW Dahlgren are the most professional people I have ever worked with. They ensure that all details are taken care of and ask the right questions to make sure that the event/meeting planners don’t forget anything. I can’t imagine working with a better group of people! Awesome!!” September 2014
  • “The instructor was unsuccessful in connecting his iPad to RM 160’s projection system and we had to go to a backup (copy of brief on thumb drive connected to the room’s PC).  No significant impact, but you might want to look into what could be done in the future to accommodate this type of device.” September 2014
  • “The staff at UMW Dahlgren Campus is outstanding!” September 2014
  • “None of the displays except the central projector appear to be compatible with Macintosh computers. When plugging in the computer using the VGA cable (via an adapter), all the other displays flash between black and the display constantly. We mitigated the problem by turning off all the other screens, since we really only needed the one projector in the center. A solution for this would be helpful, but not necessary.” September 2014
  • “Although all of the equipment was present in University Hall, there was not interface to synchronize the internet listeners with the audio in the hall. As digital media and Voice Over Internet Protocols (VOIP) continue to grow it would be a huge benefit to future users particularly in DoD to be able to offer remote participation through the use of internet using applications like Skype for private industry and Defense Connect Online (DCO) for the DoD customers. Ideally, the capability to output audio and video signals from the camera and microphones in the hall as inputs to the computer in the hall would be allow presentations to reach a wider audience and set the conditions to record the sessions for review for quality and for those unable to attend when the event was held.” August 2014
  • “Nice facility overall. It’s great that the rooms can be rearranged to meet the needs of the meeting. Staff was very helpful when we needed assistance.” August 2014
  • “Had a large group (95) in attendance sitting classroom style. The microphone sounded muffled and was difficult to hear in the back of the room. Sounds were loud enough, but could not be heard clearly. Not sure if the mic needs to be adjusted, or better directions given to those using thermic. Parking was a real issue. Heard many complaints from our group as well as other students/visitors coming in the front door, about parking on the grass and driving around for a while until they could find something. Not sure what could be done to help the situation, may want to keep that in mind whenever you book large events.” August 2014
  • “Stellar! Provided just the right atmosphere, technical capabilities, and service for our office training – THANKS!” August 2014
  • “The microphone on the podium does not work with everyone’s voice. Some had a terrible ringing in the background, which was distracting. The space is great though and the staff is very helpful is making sure we had everything we needed for the event!” August 2014
  • “Outstanding like usual.” July 2014
