Grad Testimonial

My name is Haider. I have worked in the Hospitality Management field in Netherland for few years. I decided to join the Hospitality Management program at Evergreen College in order to gain more North American knowledge and experience to support my European expertise and increase my knowledge level in the development and organization of hotel. I strongly recommend anyone who would like to start or continue their education in the hospitality field because the job opportunities are many and varied. In addition, the hospitality management includes different disciplines in a variety of fields. So I advise everyone who has a desire to attend this study and especially in Evergreen College! Evergreen college is the best place for this kind of academic study because there are 12 intensive courses and when I started the program I have found very efficient staff and very helpful in addition to all these privileges there is a co-op program which enhances our theoretical study.
