  • "The HTM Program is one of the best, in my opinion.  The professors were always there for you, and wanted you to succeed in class, and outside in the workplace.  I couldn't have chosen a better major."
  • "Absolutely enjoyed online classes.  This allowed me to do more in school, and allow me to learn at a great pace.  Professors truly care for your accomplishment."
  • "The HTM program has some of the best professors I have ever had.  They are attentive to your needs, and genuinely care about your success as a person/student.  I would highly recommend this program to others!"
  • "Looking back on my academic years, I would have not changed anything about my college education.  From the location of Fort Wayne, and the ability to observe many hospitality businesses in the city, to the strong curriculum and career resources from Purdue, the university has set me up for a wonderful life post-graduation."
  • Dr. Niser, who leads the Hospitality and Tourism Management Department, is looked up to as an international mentor to many students who graduate from the program.  The classes provide a perfect blend of hands-on operational experience, as well as, computer based data analytics and managerial theories.  Students of this program have the opportunity to choose diverse electives, and take on leadership roles in the classroom, which can make them stand out to any employer."
  • "To move away and attend the Work/Study Semester in Florida for 6 months was the scariest thought I've ever had!  I've never been away from my parents for such a long time, so this was a big step for me.  I was nervous, but also excited.  Coming out of this internship, I've grown so much as a person.  I've learned more about myself than I have ever known.  I've learned how to work with different personalities, and THAT is important for the hospitality industry.  This experience was a positive one, and I would suggest to anyone, get out of your comfort zone and take this chance - not everyone has an opportunity like this!"
