Luisa Mendoza (BS ’05), applies daily what she learned in the College of Business Administration and appreciates the connections she made in the college and the Hospitality and Tourism Management program.

One way she gives back to the college for these advantages is through her membership in the Alumni Circle, to which she hopes to “bring the resources I have to raise funds for the business school and market it so more people can see the university as a great place to get an education.”
Mendoza has found a rewarding career path in the hospitality industry, selling what the Broward County Convention Center has to offer, and enjoying the impact her successful efforts have on the local economy. She also enjoys the impact she has on young lives through her Global Mentoring Foundation, designed to provide the “tools to help kids at risk of dropping out stay in school,” she said.
