Mattoon native finds her niche in the hospitality industry

Stacy Hudson


Choosing to attend school at Eastern was an easy decision for me as I am a native of Mattoon, IL.  However, I didn’t start out as hospitality major.  I began my education at EIU as journalism major but soon learned that was not my passion.  While attending EIU,  I was working at the local Comfort Suites and it was not long until I changed majors and immediately knew I had found my niche in the hospitality industry.  From the first course I took in the area of hospitality in FCS with Dr. Brooks, I met professors with industry knowledge and also made great friends with similar interests who helped me start my career path.
