Area Students to Explore Higher Ed and Hospitality Careers During Bob Billingslea School of Hospitality Summer Bridge Program June 4 – 7





Do you know of high school juniors or seniors who wish to learn more about the hospitality industry? If so, the 2018 Hospitality Management Summer Bridge Program, a rigorous, four-day, three-night summer residential program is just the thing! The program will provide a select group of up to 30 secondary students a head start in their transition to campus life.  

Application Deadline May 18, 2018 

Participants will gain an introduction to the diverse world of hospitality, with an emphasis on the academic expectations of higher education. The exposure will acquaint students with valuable campus resources and provide opportunities to foster social and academic relationships with peers, staff, faculty and the University’s industry partners. 

The program also doubles as a recruitment tool for the hospitality management program with the potential to be a great lead-in to a freshman experience program. Now in its seventh year of existence, the Hospitality Management Summer Bridge program has yielded significant results for the Bob Billingslea School of Hospitality Management. The program is funded by an Access and Retention Grant and supported by industry partner contributions.

The deadline to apply is Friday, May 18, 2018.
