We create experiences!

In preparing students for careers as restaurant, hotel, and tourism leaders, event planners, and entrepreneurs in the 21st century we offer innovative learning experiences. The students experience learning in both informal and formal learning spaces during their time in the hospitality program. One day you will be in the cranberry bogs learning about ecotourism and the next you will be running a shift as a manager at our student run restaurant, Vaulted Cuisine.

The Hospitality and Tourism Management program at RCBC takes pride in its partnerships with industry organizations in our community. These professional relationships provide our students with diverse job opportunities for RCBC’s on-site practicum program requirement, as well as student and alumni part-time and full-time careers. RCBC works with Hyatt Place, Disney College program, Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, Springhill Suites by Marriot, and many, many, more!

Our Hospitality and Tourism Management graduates leave RCBC prepared to transfer to many of the area’s best four-year schools for Hospitality and Tourism Management. Transfer agreements with high-quality institutions allow students to take advantage of a smooth transfer process to earn their bachelor’s and master’s degrees.  

Student Testimonials

"After things weren't working at another community college, the best decision I've made was to transfer to RCBC to finish my degree and it paid off! I ended up with 2 degrees in Hospitality Management and Liberal Arts & Sciences, as well as honors recognition and becoming part of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Professor Holovacs and Professor Dipietro did an outstanding job challenging me while making me eager to learn more and each class enjoyable. I strongly recommend RCBC as the choice to pursue your educational goals and to set your future in motion." - Jacquaie Church-Ways

"RCBC's hospitality program was the best decision I've made in terms of my education and career. Working in a hotel, I've learned that every class RCBC offers is crucial to the overall understanding of the industry, from hotel operations to hospitality purchasing, ecotourism, and global tourism, these were all enjoyable and informative. Professors Van Wright, DiPietro, Cuddy and Holovacs are experienced professionals in the industry who have all helped me and pushed me to strive for more in the hospitality industry." - Danielle Wilson

“I want to thank you for everything that you have taught me! You have inspired me in so many ways! I am going to miss you and all of the great professors in the hospitality department at RCBC! Thank you for all that you have done for me!” - Cathryn Rosnick

“I'd like to take this time to thank all of you for helping me along my journey.  I've learned a lot, from each of you, that will help me on my new job.  Because of you all, I'm prepared for my future in the hospitality industry. Each of you have given me profound moments of learning.  When my "unique story" is told, you all will be a part of that story.  This is me "honoring the art of teaching" by honoring you!  Because of you all, "anything is possible" for me.  Thanking you all from the bottom of my heart.” - Jenutia Lobster
