Students in Penn College’s Hospitality Connections Club made a trip to Penn State’s Beaver Stadium to help serve fans in the facility’s skyboxes during the Nittany Lions’ Nov. 13 battle with University of Michigan.

“The students got to see the president’s box and others,” said Chef Michael J. Ditchfield.

In addition, before joining the rest of the crew at the stadium, two students in the group of six worked a “tailgate” brunch at the Penn Stater Hotel & Conference Center, which hosts visiting teams and families.

“Some of the cheerleaders and Blue Band came over, too. It’s a nice welcoming touch,” Ditchfield said.

They also worked alongside Nathan Marshall, a 2005 Penn College culinary arts technology grad and Penn Stater employee.

Student participants and their majors are Bryan Aguilar, of Reading, culinary arts technology; Palin J. Hurst, of Gardners, culinary arts technology; Hannah C. Regester, of Bedford, professional baking; Caleb J. Stemler, of Jersey Shore, baking and pastry arts; Charlie M. Suchanec, of State College, culinary arts technology; and Sarah Wolf, of White Haven, baking and pastry arts.
