The building includes housing administrative offices, classrooms, an auditorium, cafeteria and more.

Combine this with new course offerings in everything from resort management and hospitality to sustainability studies and culinary programs, and it’s truly becoming a cornerstone of the community.

“Everything we’ve done makes our campus more collegiate and legitimate,” Dean of Student Affairs Brian Hoza says. “It augments what we can do for our students and the community.”
