DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — High school students who want to learn more about careers in the hotel, restaurant, and tourism industry are invited to apply for a new one-week hospitality management summer program at the University of New Hampshire.
Twenty students who will start their senior year this fall will participate in the program. They will learn about careers available in the industry, including in hotels, resorts, restaurants, food service businesses, casinos, cruise ships, clubs, transportation, and tourism.
The program concludes with an awards dinner where all participants will receive a certificate of completion from the UNH Department of Hospitality Management 2014 Summer Program.
Applications are due April 15.
The students will be able to live on campus, take college courses and meet enrolled hospitality management students.
A typical day in the program will include breakfast at Holloway Commons, a field trip to the Wentworth By the Sea in New Castle, lunch at the Wentworth Marina, afternoon tour of a mid-size historic inn and the Sheraton Portsmouth and a visit to the historic John Paul Jones House in Portsmouth.
