Saddened by the news that the Hospitality Program is coming to an end at the University of Akron. The great memories, friendships, connections and networking are ours forever and we will treasure them. We are creating a Facebook Group page for Alumni and Alumnae so we can stay in touch and gathered once a year. This is the end of an era but the beginning of a new season. Please pass along the invitation to our great friends and colleagues who have AkronU HMP in common. Once a Zippy, always a Zippy
