Showcasing Hospitality to Prospective Students

Showcasing Hospitality to Prospective Students

The Rosen College of Hospitality Management hosted an Open House for prospective undergraduate students and their families on Friday, Oct. 21

Over 210 guests attended the free event that included tours of the Rosen College campus and apartments.  Prospective students benefited from sample classroom lectures, a showcase of student services, admissions and financial aid presentation, and an application and admission question-and-answer session.  Lunch was provided in the new Courtyard Café and families took advantage of the opportunity to buy exclusive merchandise from the Rosen College bookstore.

Senior Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions, Genyth Travis, shares, “Open House is a day dedicated to showcasing the best Rosen College has to offer students that want to study at UCF and pursue a career in the hospitality industry.”  Travis coordinates with various departments to pull off the event and ensure that guests understand what makes Rosen College a great choice.  “It’s not just about our Orlando location,” she adds,  “but the faculty and staff that are so dedicated to our programs and helping students meet their educational and career goals.”

Rosen College currently instructs 3,000 students, many of whom are pursuing undergraduate degrees in restaurant and foodservice management, event management and hospitality management.

The next open house will be Feb. 10, 2012.  To register or for more information, students can visit www.hospitality.ucf.edu or call the Rosen College Undergraduate Admissions Office at 407-903-8166.
