“…MANCHESTER, NH – A group of students and alumni of the SNHU culinary arts program have organized a meeting for Monday to persuade university President Paul LeBlanc not to cut the culinary arts major…

…Talbot launched an online petition at with close to 1,200 signatures so far, and also has created a Facebook event, “Save SNHU Culinary!” for like-minded students, alumni and residents, Jan. 23 at 2 p.m. at the on-campus Quill restaurant.
[What we want is a chance to convince them that it’s a mistake to shut down the program. Rather than look at is as failing, we want them to try to compete with the other programs out there. President LeBlanc is a reasonable man. He’s grown the university from its NH College days to what it is now,] says Talbot. [He’s interested in growth. And he’s done things, like buying the naming rights to the Verizon, so that every concert T-shirt you buy has the SNHU brand on it.
Talbot believes shutting down the program will have a domino effect on the New Hampshire restaurant scene, as it serves as a feeder program for the state’s booming hospitality industry. The decision would directly effect young people like Talbot, who are able to “stay work and play” in New Hampshire, rather than go elsewhere for employment opportunities.”
