About the Club

The Club at Gateway Center is an integral part of the educational experience for the Hospitality Management program. The restaurant is a showcase training laboratory for students enrolled in two restaurant operations courses.

In these courses, students learn how to run a successful restaurant. They practice fine dining service techniques, management skills, menu planning, financial management, marketing techniques, and food production. The original Club at College Inn successfully operated for 14 years. In the fall of 2001, the Hospitality Management Program relocated to the Club at Gateway Center. It is a premier learning environment for students and a delightful experience for guests.





Guest Chef

Each semester the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism invites a local chef to visit the Club. Students are given the opportunity to work alongside a culinary master in preparing an exquisite luncheon Menu. Guest Chef Day is the most popular day of the semester and is always a sold-out event!
