  The Advanced Food & Beverage Class Fall's dining series.
Watch this short video to see and hear what our dining series experiences are all about.



During the academic year, Advanced Food and Beverage students majoring in Hospitality Management delight the University community and beyond with dining experience. The "Dinner and Brunch series are an opportunity for students to apply fundamentals learned through classes in the Hospitality Management Program, and give the students real-world, hands-on experience. Students are responsible, with instructional guidance from faculty, for all aspects of the event: planning and preparing the menu, selling and marketing the event, managing finances, and creating an enjoyable night for all who attend.

Check out Facebook for latest updates!

This year we are excited to be taking a different approach to the dinner. Instead of a banquet style event, we are having a prix fixe menu with interactive stations, and will be taking reservations. There will be a cocktail area for those waiting for their table and reservation times are indicative of the time your table will be seated.

To purchase tickets click on the date:

Friday - April 12, 2019

Saturday - April 13, 2019

Sunday - April 14, 2019

(Price for Dining Series: $55 for Dinners and $30 for Brunch.)

We will try to accommodate all reservation requests. Thank you for your understanding.

We would like to thank our past sponsors for whose generosity and support have continued to allow the hospitality management program to continue its current and future students.
