Hear from our Students

Marina Pappalardo,
SMCC student

“I transferred to SMCC after attending a four-year college in New Hampshire. I’m not only saving money but getting a quality education on a beautiful campus.

The hospitality field is broad enough where you can get into multiple things. There’s event planning, airlines, hotels, restaurants, the list goes on. And I love being around people, so this was a perfect fit for me.

The faculty expose us to all the different possibilities in hospitality, and they make sure we get a foot in the door.”

Lydia Lane
SMCC graduate, Owner of fern & flair

I launched fern & flair Wedding and Events while taking classes in the Hospitality Management program. After graduating with two degrees, in Hospitality and Business, I continued growing my business as a wedding and event planner.

But the biggest thing for me was all the connections I made with people in the industry. Hospitality isn’t something you learn from a textbook, and thankfully our classes weren’t like that.
