If you plan it, they will come

by Erin Rosacker

Uh-oh. The winter holidays are almost here and despite the dC)cor that started showing up in stores before October, you've forgotten to book your office party.

Don't worry. There are plenty of options.

ISU Catering can bail you out, arranging anything from a coffee break to a seven-course meal. Office parties can be catered just about anywhere -- from your own conference room to a site you've reserved on campus.

The Knapp-Storms complex, which houses the catering headquarters, can seat up to 250 people in its newly renovated commons area, and parking is a dream. The Memorial Union and Scheman Building have rooms to accommodate groups of just about any size. ISU Catering has on-site facilities in both buildings for refreshments, buffets or sit-down meals.

Reiman Gardens has rooms and other areas for seating up to 200 people, and its party packages include rental, food and beverage. Rental times aren't limited to the Gardens' regular hours, with bookings available any day of the week until 11 p.m.
