CEPA and Humber College Toronto celebrating 10-years anniversary at the CEPA study center in Strasbourg, France

For 10 years, Humber College (School of Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism) and CEPA Europe have been running a semester abroad program in Strasbourg, France open to students with a major/minor in Culinary Management, Hospitality Management, Tourism Management, and Tourism & Hospitality Management.

During the program students reside at the historic Chateau de Portales and complete seven weeks of classroom instruction. Weekly field trips are taken to breweries, wineries, patisseries, hotels and attractions around France, including Paris.

After 10 years, we feel very honored to have this relationship with the people at Humber College. Together, we work hard to continously improve the program in order to make it an excellent opportunity for their students to connect their classroom learning with real-world experience.

“The experience and CEPA changed our lives! That’s the truth.

Our family will always have the unbelievable memories to hold onto for the rest of our lives. We are so incredibly thankful for the opportunity to experience Europe. I truly cannot think of a day that goes by where our trip doesn’t touch us in some way. Whether we are looking at some of the artwork we brought back or singing our own kugelhopf song or Skyping Biggi or looking at our photos, smiles our brought to our faces each and every time.

Thank you Uli for all that you and your team provide to EVERYONE who graces the Chateau’s doors and CEPA’s programs.

WOOHOO HUMBER and CEPA!!!!

And thank you for letting me, my family and so many of us over the past 10 glorious years enjoy the ride!!!!”

All our love,
Kristy, Brent, Carter (12) and Griffin (9)
