Employee Highlight

"I love my job! Advising students in the AAS Culinary Arts and BA Hospitality Administration programs is so incredibly rewarding. I am continually amazed at the talent of these students and even more so with the endless opportunities, there are for these students in the industry once they graduate. We have cutting edge facilities for our students and faculty that are highly experienced in the industry and the classroom, several of which are graduates from our program. 

-Whitney Flores, Student Success Coach, Culinary Arts & Hospitality Administration
