INSTITUTE OF HOSPITALITY & CULINARY EDUCATION
Hospitality & Culinary Student Association

HCSA stands for Hospitality and Culinary Students Association. Our goal is to help our community and school through our organization, and to reinforce the knowledge we have learned in hospitality and culinary through service, dedication and commitment.

Our History…

HCSA was formed in 2003 by students in the Program with similar interests in honing their leadership skills, teamwork, networking, contributing through college and community work, and personal and professional growth.

The first major activity was the Valentine's Day dinner whereby approximately 50 dinners were sold that first year. The following year, HCSA took the bold step of applying and were successful in securing SAFAC funding for a trip to the National Restaurant Show in Chicago.  HCSA was recognized as Outstanding Student Organization for the year 2004/2005 by Collin College. Other recognitions include winning First Place at the MPI Tablescape Competition (2013-2014).
