Louisville-based Sullivan University’s National Center for Hospitality Studies now offers articulation agreements for local students interested in cooking and hospitality careers.
The program is currently being extended to students in Fort Thomas, Campbell County, Grant County and Williamstown schools, but Sullivan has plans to soon forge similar agreements with other NKY schools.
“Our students love taking the culinary arts classes offered at the high school,” said Katelyn Phillips, Family and Consumer Science Teacher at Campbell County High school. “They get to learn trendy cooking techniques as well as operating a student-run catering business for our school and community. We do so much hands-on cooking and learning, the students see how this real-world skill is beneficial to them and how they can use these techniques in the future.”
Sullivan University Provost Dr. Kenneth Miller said articulation agreements allow parents and students to save money on tuition costs while providing students with a chance to earn college credits while still in high school.
“At Sullivan University, we know that the cost of college weighs heavily on the minds of students and their parents,” Miller said. “With this in mind, we crafted these agreements with the idea of bringing down the cost of college while letting a student finish a degree program faster.”
