The Hospitality Division had a student Christmas party on December 14th.  It was a time to relax before the final exam on the 18th but was also a good opportunity to mingle with the other classes and make new friends.  Special thanks to Epi and Freda for organizing the food and entertainment.   It was a great party full of good food, games and camaraderie.

Solomon College’s new Hospitality wing with approximately 3,500 square feet of space opened on October 26th.  Our doors opened on the same day as we welcomed a new Hospitality class.

The new wing will provide a better learning environment for our students.  The two spacious classrooms with a capacity of 40 students, have touch point technology with a smart projector. Our facility also includes  a storage area, a reception area, a student lounge and a kitchen area with a sink, a microwave, and hot water for tea or coffee.

We are very excited to have a new wing with ample space, large windows with natural light, and the latest technology to deliver an outstanding hospitality program.
