Angie Milbourn is a single mother of three children. She’s been working toward a college degree since she graduated from high school. It’s been a challenging and convoluted journey to UVU’s new Hospitality Management program, but it also has been rewarding and successful.
Her journey started at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC), where she received an associate degree in general studies. She considered studying culinary arts and nutrition, but she decided they weren’t the right fit.
“I started to think about what I wanted to do,” Milbourn says. “I realized that I really like people and events. Hospitality management seemed like a good choice to me, and I shifted gears.”
She compared hospitality management programs at universities across the state. Milbourn discovered UVU’s online program was not only the least expensive option but also ranked as one of the best in the state and offered a plethora of helpful programs
