LAUNCH Hospitality Immersion Program

For more than 30 years, White Lodging has been known for creating fulfilling, long-term careers following college graduation.  With the addition of the Union Club Hotel at Purdue University into its portfolio in 2020, it took this commitment to the next level with the LAUNCH Hospitality Immersion Program.

LAUNCH is designed to propel high-caliber Purdue University students into the hospitality industry by providing a paid, hands-on experience across all hotel and restaurant operational areas.

LAUNCH is an immersive three-stage program that builds upon the learnings and experiences of each previous stage, culminating in a comprehensive manager-in-training experience.  The program helps students define their preferred focus area(s), instills leadership qualities, and provides dedicated mentorship while exposing students to all hotel and restaurant operational areas.
