The foundation you need to succeed

Bri Rose
Bri Rose rolls up her sleeves, gearing up for a career in one of the world’s fastest growing industries – hospitality and tourism. “The career possibilities in this field are endless,” said Rose, a junior at Indiana University Kokomo and one of the first to declare this major after the degree program became available two years ago.
Sophomore Sojourn
A gourmet meal served on fine china is not a typical meal enjoyed by a college student. For 14 Indiana University Kokomo hospitality and tourism majors, however, it is part of a defining experience — the Sophomore Sojourn.
Brenda Morgan
Retirement was just the beginning for Brenda Morgan. Bored with sitting at home, Morgan, now 61, decided it was time to complete the bachelor’s degree she started shortly after high school. She enrolled at Indiana University Kokomo, determined to graduate.
