I am extremely impressed with what I have seen at Alpine College over my past 4 years. The commitment of the staff and management were strongly evident in all my dealings with them. The very nature of my own involvement with them is a strong indicator of their desire to remain at the forefront of hospitality management in a rapidly changing world, and to this end I found their lecturers and management very open to new ideas and quite flexible in their thinking.
I was especially pleased with the industry placement program run by the college as part of their degree course, which offers students practical experience in some of the best hotels and other hospitality businesses around the world. Any young person in our region who is considering a career in the industry would do well to consider Alpine College as the leader in their field.
