Welcome from the President
Thank you for looking at Lexington College. Welcome. We hope that you enjoy your virtual visit to the women's hospitality management college.
The hospitality industry is known for its customer service, but we can see that at times, professional training of personnel in the industry has been lacking and narrow in scope.
Only in the last decades have colleges and universities developed programs in hospitality management—programs that move beyond vocational, technical, 'hands-on' programs. Today, many colleges provide technical expertise, but few, if any, provide the breadth of education in hospitality management that Lexington does and no others tailor their education only to women.
At Lexington we combine personalized, professional training with a solid foundation of general education courses to truly serve the needs of women. We hope that the knowledge that each young woman internalizes from her study at Lexington enables her to be a strong professional who works well, and is also a leader for her colleagues.
Our curriculum combines foundational skills along with pathways for specialization, so that each student can pursue goals according to her interests. For example, our general education curriculum at Lexington includes solid components of English and literature, humanities, philosophy, mathematics, and theology, as well as an exposure to economics, history, and social science. Our hospitality management degree requirements provide a strong group of management courses ranging from human resources, business administration, marketing, strategic marketing, business law, to entrepreneurship.
Our concentrations in event planning, culinary arts, hotel/restaurant management, and health care & wellness give students specialized skills and knowledge that when coupled with the management component of our curriculum, equip them to enter the industry ready to succeed in entry-level management positions. And our grads report they are well prepared for professional life after college!
Throughout our curriculum, we foster critical and analytical thinking in students. And all courses have the goal of helping students to become life-long learners as they progress in their careers.
But at Lexington, professional competence is not enough. Students also need to grow socially and spiritually. So, we provide an educational environment that fosters these key aspects in each woman's life.
Come and take a look for yourself! We look forward to hearing from you or seeing you visit the campus soon.
