Members of the Hospitality Living-Learning Community gathered Friday for pizza and a movie, courtesy of their faculty mentor. Fitting for the first-year students in culinary arts, baking and pastry arts and hospitality management majors, the group watched “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” a 2014 comedy/drama about a family that leaves India for France and opens a restaurant across the street from a Michelin-starred eatery. The group is mentored by Chef Todd M. Keeley, instructor of baking and pastry arts/culinary arts. Penn College’s Residence Life Office offers a variety of living-learning communities on campus, each designed to give students in like majors opportunities to expand their knowledge outside the classroom.
