“The Bob”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Saw Sixers vs the Celtics Pre season and it was Fab. No issues getting in but only one desire for a cold one, but alas no alcohol was being served. Over all a great experience and a good time

“Good space and great experience here!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I believe this is a good place for big events like graduations. I have been to multiple graduations and it is always a positive experience because the space is very well organized, the staff are always there for help and it is very easy to locate. Also there is a lot of parking space and it is wheelchair accessible and restrooms are easily accessible. Another positive aspect of the Bob is that it is fairly close to Main St. and you can easily go have lunch or dinner to any of the restaurants around the area.

“Sporting Events”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is the place to go to see great college basketball both men and women. Great seating. The food is home made and they even have ice cream made at the university's creamery. When they are not having a sporting event the also from time to time have concerts there. Check the U of D website for events.

“Graduation at the Carpenter Center”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The University had carefully organized the podium, chairs, etc. for maximum visuals of the graduates. This is the first time I have been to the Center for a non-sports event. The Center was clean, including the bathrooms and food was available. Seating was plentiful so the whole family could attend. Even those sitting in the back could have a good view.

“Bob Carpenter Center Fall Craft Show”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We have been going to the Craft Shows at Bob Carpenter Center for years. Always good venders with neat crafts at good prices. However , over the past couple of years it has gotten smaller ie...fewer venders, They change the dates of the fall show ....usually between Oct and early Dec.. Sometimes they have crafts on both floors of the huge 2 story building. Admission is between $3-$5 per person with door prizes going off every hour ! Worth a couple of hours
