Bachelor of Science, Hospitality Management

While studying at U of D I participated in two student trainee positions. The first was working for our student run fine dining restaurant right on campus called Vita Nova. I gained professional kitchen experience and formal dining service training. For my second trainee position I rotated through several lodging positions at the University of Delaware's Courtyard by Marriott.
