The George C.S. Benson Auditorium is Pitzer’s largest indoor event space and is as gorgeous as it is functional. This stadium-style auditorium is home to a large performance stage, cushy movie-style folding seats, and a ton of technology features to support almost any event. The room was meticulously built with great acoustics in mind and a lot of our hosted presenters find that they don’t even need a microphone to address their audience (though we certainly have microphones available if requested).
Benson Auditorium plays host to all kinds of events; including classes, plays, musical performances, lectures, presentations, meetings, conventions, and more.
