Cincinnati — Antonelli College has established a partnership with the Crowne Plaza Cincinnati North providing Hospitality Arts students the opportunity to study in a cooperative learning environment beginning in the winter quarter. The partnership affords students access to facility leadership in addition to the theory based curriculum.
"I am very excited for this partnership; there is not a comparable classroom atmosphere that can replicate the opportunities the students will have while learning in an actual hotel environment," said department chair, Christa Eldridge. "This is the kind of ‘real world’ education that advances our students to a new level in both practical experience and professionalism."
Beginning Jan. 5, students will attend instructor-led lectures at the venue in addition to completing rotations alongside the hotel staff as a part of the lab curriculum requirements.
“We look forward to Antonelli College’s Hospitality Arts students attending classes and engaging at the Crowne Plaza Cincinnati North. Our property will be a great resource as we encompass all aspects of the program; Food and Beverage to Meeting, Conference and Event Planning,” said General Manager, Ted Hyle.
The Crowne Plaza Cincinnati North offers 257 guest rooms, over 15 thousand square feet of meeting space and an onsite restaurant. Additionally, the venue has earned an Excellent meeting planner designation by the Crowne Plaza corporate office.
The Antonelli College Hospitality Arts program offers coursework toward an Associate of Applied Business in Hospitality Arts. Specializations include Food and Beverage, Hotel and Lodging and Meeting Conference and Event Planning.
Antonelli College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), registration number # 90-03-1270-T. It offers students the opportunity to develop their gifts and talents in the arts, business and IT, health and well-being or medical into professional skills. A well-known asset of the visual arts community in Cincinnati, Ohio since 1947, Antonelli College offers degree programs at both their downtown and West Chester locations as well as two campuses in Mississippi and online.
