The old college motto,"Vigeat Radix" (May the Root Thrive) is as appropriate today as it was in the early 1850’s. The work of the Foundation thrives today, with Taylor Hall, the Gym and the Pool as its retreat center. St. John’s Chapel stands in the middle of one of the oldest intact collegiate quadrangles in America and hosts numerous weddings and services each year. Wedding receptions are held in both the Assembly Hall and the Great Hall. Each Tuesday at noon, a service for visitors and guests is held in St. Mary’s Chapel with its striking carved wood reredos and altar, unusual clear glass Gothic windows and baby grand piano. The DeKoven Center continues a legacy of education, spiritual reflection and recreation, sponsoring monthly retreats and quiet days, hosting quarterly retreats and conferences led by nationally known speakers, and promoting a variety of events and programs in the arts. The Center also has a full range of gym and pool classes and activities. We invite individuals and groups of all faiths to visit and use our historic campus and its unparalleled facilities.

  • The Dekoven center was amazing! The staff is great and was very helpful and quick to respond to all of the questions that we had. Their pricing was very affordable and included a lot of things that other venues did not.
  • It’s one of the best venues for wedding and other events!
