“I have performed in both the Lazzara Performance Hall and Robinson Theater spaces on the campus of UNF.  For the needs of my event, both spaces are wonderful. It is always a pleasure to work on this campus because not only is it in a beautiful location, the office and technical staffs of the Fine Arts Center are always helpful and courteous, making the experience beautiful too.”

Talon Room


“We held a holiday party for our student club leaders and Business Advisory Council in the Talon Room this year and it was a tremendous success. The event coordinator was very helpful during the planning process and our support at the actual event was top notch. I will be using the Talon Room for more events in the coming year!”
