The Restaurant at Purdue Northwest

Part of the White Lodging School for Hospitality and Tourism Management, The Restaurant at Purdue Northwest allows students interested in hospitality and tourism the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in an elegant setting.

Completely managed by students, the restaurant provides the opportunity to learn hospitality project management. Students rotate from front of the house dealing directly with guests to back of the house food production and then to management positions where they supervise other students in class.
