"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."Stacy Hudson (2012)
"The classes, opportunities, and faculty shaped me into the person I am today and prepared me for my career. EIU helped me get an internship with Ralph Lauren in NY, a life changing experience. I now work for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as an Event Marketing Representative.”Mollie Kelley (2014)
"There are courses offered in this program that walk students through the understanding of the consumer and as an FCS professional, I have learned I want to improve quality of life for my clients."Helen Marcotte (2011)
