My name is Nicole Holden, I graduated in
December of 2008 and I’m currently employed at the Fargo-Moorhead Convention
and Visitors Bureau. I think some of the skills that I
learned in the hospitality program was just the ability to think about the
details and work on your feet, and really learn how to work well
with professionals already in the industry. So it was really nice as a
student to be able to approach some of the restaurants and some of the caterers
and be able to get them involved and being able to work with other people
other than just your students and your teachers, and working with real-life
individuals who are already working in the hospitality industry. It’s such a great
networking a connection piece as well. The Food & Wine Show supports our Hospitality
Students Association (HSA) members for two scholarships. The additional money we create
goals to next year for our funds. I’m Emily Klumm, I graduated in 2012 and I
work at the Fargo Convention and Visitors Bureau. I think the most important
thing is people skills, you always need that in the hospitality
industry. It’s also great because a lot of my classmates are still in the area and
if you ever need help, you know that now they are in the GM positions, or sales
positions, it’s always good to count on them to get
help if you need it, or to get ideas. We definitely all stay in contact still, a
good group of us. Helping with the Food & Wine Show really taught me that it takes a whole team to get a job done. So the food when she was really complex
and we needed all five of our officers plus all of our team members in HSA to help
us really pull it all together and have a good show. I am Laura McMartin I
graduated in 2013 from the Hospitality program here at NDSU. It was super
beneficial to my career and my success I’ve had thus far. It made me realize a lot of work goes into an
event more than you think goes into it. We were afforded with a ton of opportunities
that translated towards the real world. A lot of them being hands-on experiences,
whether through HSA, really good guest speakers in the classes, the most
beneficial part was the variety of classes that NDSU does offer within
the Hospitality program. You can choose your emphasis whether it’s golfing or
country clubs or hotel management, food and beverage, restaurant. I chose
kind of event planning route with a little empathy on lodging and it was a good choice.
