Café Laura: The Living Lab

Café Laura is an educational partnership between Penn State Housing and Food Service and the School of Hospitality Management. Inherent to the development of students as professionals in the foodservice segment of the hospitality industry is their successful completion of food service simulation courses designed to prepare them for management positions. Each time Café Laura opens its doors, it is a unique blend of instructional foodservice laboratory and contemporary dining facility open to the public on a daily basis.
