Student Spotlight

“The Hospitality & Restaurant Management program sets you up to have your cake and eat it too. You don’t actually have to choose between running hotels and culinary arts. You get to do both things at the same time, and they even set you up with an internship so that you can gain real life experience in the industry.”

— Kelly Halgrimson, AAS Culinary Arts and BA, Hospitality & Restaurant Management
