Transcript Dinner Series Teaches Students Restaurant Business The UH Hilton's Barron's restaurant dinner series provided a living, breathing laboratory for Hotel and Restaurant Management majors. The series was hosted by students attending one of five sections of the capstone course in the hotel school. Each class was responsible for a different night of the week. Students managed all aspects of restaurant operation, and a different cuisine was featured each night. The school had been criticized in the past for using students to help turn a profit for the school, but Beth Needham, restaurant manager said this criticism was unfair. "Since we are a training facility, our main objective is not maximiz- Hugh Walter Acting Dean-College of Hotel/Restaurant Management ing profits. Instead we try to provide the student with as realistic of an experience as possible including the bottom line-making a profit," she said. "A lot of the people who attend are family and friends of the kitchen and service managers," Needham said. "Part of their grade is how many people they get in and how effective their marketing is, so they get people from wherever they can get them," said Needham. The students who worked on the series were exposed to each of the different restaurant occupations. Students assumed different roles fromserverstomanagers.-John Varriale Students in the College of Hotel & Restaurant Management enjoyed good food, talking with friends and dancing at a dinner and dance.

Making A Great University Even Better Making a great university into an even better one while working with diminishing resources is the most difficult challenge, said James Pipkin the Dean of the College of Humanities, Fine Arts and Communication. The first stage of changes were centered at the faculty level because of the campus-wide reshaping exercises the HFAC college recently finished, Pipkin said. One of the changes implemented was that faculty meetings and evaluations were held weekly to work on techniques to teach and improve student-faculty relations, he said. "The beginning and end to everything is the commitment to the student," Pipkin added. The HFAC college hosted external events for the community. Three professors and two students shared their talents and university experiences in a performance for a number of influential community members. The purpose of the event was to gain support and interest in UH and the HFAC college. "UH is better known to various parts of country than to the city of Houston," Pipkin said. "We are working to bring the city of Houston in touch with UH." -Mindi King James Pipkin Dean-College of Humanities, Fine Arts & Communications HOTEL & RESTAURANT MANAGEMENT HUMANITIES, FINE ARTS & COMMUNICATIONS 304 Academics Colleges 305
