Good Evening Everyone!

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend. I wanted to provide important information regarding registration for classes for the next semester, spring 2017. FYLC is hosting a series of workshops of which there are two coming up on November 14th and November 16th. I have attached a picture of the flyer for more details.


Did you know you can register for a learning community that will help you fulfill your elective requirements??!! If you register for Culinary Arts I (HMGT1203) or Baking and Pastry Arts I (HMGT1204) and History of Photography (ARTH1100) you can earn 6 credits and fulfill an elective requirements such as Writing Intensive, Liberal Arts Elective, Creative Expression or Flexible Common Core. That’s a great way to get ahead and check at least 1 more class off of your list of requirements. If you have any questions contact Prof. Thalia Warner (Culinary and Baking) at


If you have any questions, Do not hesitate to contact me.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend,


Peer Mentor.

Before visiting the Park Lane Hotel, I had very little knowledge about it. I think it was a great opportunity to see what is like to work in a luxurious hotel. This opened my eyes to the many different areas within the hotel industry and the different kind of hotels you can choose to be a part of. I definitely enjoyed learning about the speakers and how they started off and eventually reached their current positions. The most significant information for me was to learn about some of the challenges a general manager has to face and learn more about the responsibilities that a general manager has not only with the hotel, but with its employee, its guests and the community because they all go hand in hand.

Hello my name is ambar ubiera, I’m currently a senior at City Tech majoring in hospitality management. I will be working alongside professor Goodlad and Professor Stewart as a peer mentor, part of the first year learning community. I feel like this will be a great opportunity to introduce everyone in this class to the many opprtunities available for every student majoring in hospitality. I have taken advantage of many opportunties myself, such as the DIsney College Program and The Thomas Ahrens International Study Abroad Program. these both have been amazing experiences that have helped me grow personally and professionally which also have benefited me tremendously and have allowed me to meet people from different parts of the world. I am also involved in volunteering opportunities and extracurricular activities such as being the treasurer of the American Culinary Federation (ACF) student club during my junior year and now have transitioned to be the president of said student club. I am very excited to be part of the peer mentor program and work with the students as well as our wonderful professors to assist and encourage everyone to take part of these opportunities being offered because they will have a positive impact in your personal and professional life. I am looking forward to meeting everyone.
