The "Spring 2018 Themed Dinner Series - A Fine Dining Experience" starts Feb. 28.

Students from the Widener University Center for Experience Management in Tourism and Hospitality have kicked off the popular "Spring 2018 Themed Dinner Series – A Fine Dining Experience." Throughout the semester, members of the public are invited to experience fine dining and vibrant flavors from around the world.

Guests will enjoy a four-course, fixed-price meal prepared and served by the Center for Experience Management in Tourism and Hospitality students as part of their Restaurant Operations Management Course.

The students – many of whom are pursuing careers in event planning and restaurant/hotel management – are responsible for service, operations and financial management all while managing their fellow students that are producing and serving these meals.
