The Collins College Of Hospitality Management

Experience Hospitality: Orange County

 May 13 | Anaheim Hilton | 8 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

This was the first leadership summit of its kind in Orange County bringing together aspiring young students, the hospitality industry and partners in higher education. More than 450 Southern California high school students participated in this half-day event featuring industry speakers, tours of hospitality venues in Anaheim and a networking lunch. Students also received information on the California State University, community colleges and financial aid.

The purpose of the event is to increase high school students’ exposure to the hospitality industry and provide them with resources to take the next step towards college and career. This outreach event is modeled after successful events in Los Angeles, San Jose and San Diego.
