Aspen Grille and the Hospitality Management Program at the Lory Student Center
Aspen Grille partners with the Hospitality Management program to provide students with a background in both food and lodging operations. This major draws upon special food service course work in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition and specially designed courses in resort management and an array of courses in business. Course work provides a broad exposure to the liberal arts and sciences as well. Elective credit allows students to tailor their own program of study to their particular interest. The major provides access to a broad array of employment possibilities.
The Department maintains close ties with the hospitality industry locally, statewide, and nationally in an effort to establish as many employment opportunities as possible. This expanding service industry encompasses commercial restaurants, cafeterias, hotels, leisure-time industries such as clubs and resorts, health care facilities, and educational institutions.
The HM major is controlled for students who are currently enrolled at CSU. In order to change your major into RRM, you must have a GPA of 2.7, and have completed FSHN150 and CHEM107 with a grade of “C” or better. Incoming students can declare RRM as their major without these criteria.
