“Please accept my enduring gratitude for all your contributions to the success of the University Commencement. So many months of planning, and so many people lending their expertise and dedication, yielded a joyous and meaningful celebration of the proudest day on the Rutgers calendar. To know that so many people sacrificed their Mother’s Day to be there only adds to my appreciation and affection for an incredible team effort.
For all you did to ensure an exceedingly well-organized and successful Commencement, and for all you do for Rutgers throughout the year, I thank you.”

-Richard L. McCormick, Former Rutgers President

“Thank you for all the help right from selecting the location to helping me with food choices for my Conference. All our guests were highly appreciative of all the food choices and the Conference room at Livingston. Everything was in place at the right time and in the right quantity. My guests loved the lunch at Winants Hall and take away lunch bags that were handed out today.
A special thanks to Nancy – who helped at Winants Hall and Joan who helped me today at Livingston. Last but not the least a huge thank you to Maren, who patiently answered all my questions and helped me with every single thing that I asked for always with a smile. I am so glad that I had this opportunity to work with such a great group of people who supported me to make this event a huge success. Looking forward to working with you in the future. Thanks once again.”

-Nirmala Sundaram, Office of Budget and Resource Studies

“Thank you again for a wonderful catered dinner! The set-up, service, and food for the Symposium Speaker’s Dinner was another success.

You are all first class! Many thanks again.”

-Peter Gillies, Ph.D; Director of IFNH

“Thank you so much for all your hard work behind the curtain. You and your team worked to take care of each and every detail so perfectly that everyone who came will remember this meeting for a very long time. Everything worked out so perfect. Your attention to details from past few weeks and on that day, made me so relaxed and confident that it was right choice to stay at the university. Please convey our regards to Chefs, Managers, helpers, servers, and everyone who was part of the event.”

-Danielle Chirico

“Joanna and I thank you and your entire staff for a wonderful dinner and reception last night. We were very pleased as were all the dinner guests. Everything was wonderful– the food was exceptional and truly delicious, the service was outstanding, and it was a wonderful visual presentation. The menu selections worked out perfectly. People talked about the dinner and reception all evening–and you have now set a new goal post for dining services! Thank you so much to all (and this is including the reception after the talk–and thanks also to Chef Julian Brown). All dining services efforts to make this event special are truly appreciated. Thank you!”

-Maryella, Senior Program Administrator of Global Initiatives

“I want to thank you and the Dining Services staff for the delicious barbecue they prepared for us in front of Old Queens. Everyone did a wonderful job, in very high heat, to keep the crowd well-fed and refreshed. Special kudos to Susan DiMaio, who worked with Carol Koncsol, as they have done so many times in the past, to ensure a very successful and enjoyable event. For all that you and Dining Services do for the Rutgers community, I am deeply grateful.”

-Richard L. McCormick

-Barbara E. Bender, Associate Dean Graduate School-New Brunswick

“Just a quick note to express my gratitude for the expeditious, efficient, and exceptional manner in which you handled the Muschinske memorial reception. Your recommended menu was perfect, and the servers were exceptional. Thanks for your sensitivity and responsiveness on such short notice.”

-Dr. Kenneth J. Breslauer, Linus C. Pauling Professor Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology Dean and Vice President, Life and Health Sciences Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

“What a great night Tuesday was, thanks to you. And, interestingly, I think most folks (at least those at my table) were so excited and delighted by the appetizers that it might have been better to go with your
first idea and do a Russian main course. None-the-less everyone loved the food and drink (the red wine was especially nice I think; I didn’t have any white so I can’t comment on that) and the service was exemplary, just fabulous. It is such a pleasure to work with you, Susan, you know how to do things right and we are grateful.”
