Winter/Spring 2012

Happy New Year Triton Alumni and Friends!

 

2012 marks the beginning of exciting change and innovation at Triton College as we gear up to celebrate 50 years of providing quality education for our community in 2014.  You will see change and innovation in the work of the Triton Foundation to raise funds to build a new Culinary Education Center for our growing Hospitality progam, in the launch of the Triton College Alumni Association, the first in the college's history, and in institutional efforts to support veterans in our community.  We look forward to embarking on a year of change and innovation and ensuring our alumni and friends are a part of it.     

 

Sincerely,

Growing Hospitality Program Highlights Need for Culinary Education Center

 

Do you have fond memories of family gatherings in your kitchen at home? Grandparents, parents and children work elbow-to-elbow while someone demonstrates their special way to roll out the dough or season a sauce.

While that scenario describes a perfect way to pass cherished recipes from generation to generation, it is not the kind of environment that is ideal for training culinary professionals. And yet, students in Triton's Hospitality Industry Administration (HIA) program must perfect their skills in extremely tight lab spaces every day...hopefully though, not for much longer.

Triton Salutes Success by Serving Our Veterans

  

Recognized by G.I. Jobs magazine in 2011 as a military-friendly school, Triton College is making every effort to address the needs of its student veterans by providing resources and services to aid in their transition from the battlefield to the classroom.

In late 2011, the college formed a committee charged with bringing together local businesses, organizations and parishes to serve all veterans in the surrounding community. Aligning with President Obama's Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge, which calls for interfaith cooperation and programming in service to others, the college's initiative recently spearheaded a clergy forum and has been   

  developing various events  and

   workshops to benefit the 

   lives and honor the service of

   military men and women and

   their families.
