Pursing her passion for hospitality

Being located in one of Florida’s prime tourist locations, graduates of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program will find many opportunities for internships and jobs in this dynamic industry.
In Toussaint’s case, it was the flexibility of the program that worked in her favor to complete her degree.
“It’s flexible and it works with your work schedule; most of us do have a full time job and other responsibilities, children and family” said Toussaint.
