This mega field trip kicks off with a College and Career Expo and panel featuring current CSU hospitality students. Students are then separated into groups of 20-30 for exclusive front-of-the-house and back-of-the-house tours of hotels, restaurants and hospitality venues. The day wraps up with an interactive student-industry networking lunch.
