"Miller-Ward is the perfect location to host Garden Greets. It has an open architecture which allows natural networking and conversations. It has a unique juxtaposition of being a large enough space but small enough to not feel overwhelmed or lost. I greatly enjoy events such as Garden Greets as it allows me to come back to campus and provide insight to those sitting in a seat who have the whole world in front of them."
