Make plans to join us for our first-ever Reunion Days at Chattanooga State to reconnect with old friends, meet new ones, and help us mark fifty years serving Chattanooga. The goal of Reunion Days is to celebrate our proud past, reconnect with one another and showcase our campus community during featured events throughout this academic year.
Be sure to visit chattanoogastate.edu/50th for the latest on our growing schedule of events. Our preliminary schedule of events is below:
“A ROCKET to the brilliant idea of establishing a first-rate hospitality and culinary center at Chattanooga State in loving memory of the late Michael Hennen… and if we can capture Michael’s delightful zest for life in the students the center will hopefully produce, it will be a godsend for our area.” -Roy Exum
“There can be no better namesake than Michael Hennen because he epitomizes hospitality.” -Jon Kinsey
We are grateful for the outpouring of love and support in establishing the Michael P. Hennen Hospitality & Culinary Center at Chattanooga State.
