  • The GPA Dining Room

    The Culinary Arts Program at Pueblo Community College has been teaching our students to prepare and serve quality food since 1984. The GPA Dining Room is located on the bottom floor of the Student Center next to the bookstore. The purpose of this dining room is to give Culinary Arts students the “real world” experience of preparing high quality food and providing excellent customer service to guests, in a learning atmosphere. Students learn how important customer service is in any type of restaurant or hospitality business. In the “Front of the House”, students learn proper serving methods, different styles of dining room set ups, how to use current technology to benefit the guest, and proper ways to interface with co-workers and guests. Serving quality food is of utmost importance. In the “Back of the House” our students focus not only on the quality technical skills that are expected in restaurant operations today, but also the critical thinking skills needed in order to handle any type of restaurant environment.

    The GPA Dining Room is open to the public, usually beginning the second week of fall & spring semesters, Tuesdays through Fridays, from 11:30am – 1:00pm.
