I loved the accommodations: they were safe and close to DePaul University. The cafeteria at the University Center was also very good; I used it often for my breakfast. Father Remo Zanatta C.R.S.

DePaul University is a fantastic location and it has been great to be here!  Father Brian Nolan, C.S.s.R.

It was convenient to have breakfast right there at the University Center. I guess I'd have to say that the biggest plus for me with housing was that it was so close to where we met for the Institute. I liked being able to walk there and not have to worry about finding transportation. It was also close enough to the lake that we walked there a number of evenings.

Sister Clarice Korger, O.S.B.

I appreciated the longer lunch break to relax and to network. Thank you for a well organized workshop.

Father Stephen Lopez, O.P.
