“Originally, I thought the hospitality industry was all about service and guest satisfaction, but Camosun’s Tourism and Hospitality Management program taught me it's much more than that. It's about the people, the community, about the land we live on and how all these play a vital role in ensuring that a business is a success and sustainable.”
