BLI Alumni Leadership Update - SUNY Broome Culinary and Event Center
Join us for an exclusive tour of the SUNY Broome Culinary and Event Center. The $21.5 million project represents a transformation and a preservation of the historic building, which opened in 1904 and housed what became the Broome County Public Library for 96 years. By 2000, the library had outgrown its space and moved to its current location just blocks away.
The CEC is open for the Spring 2020 semester and houses the college’s popular Hospitality programs, which include Culinary Arts, Event Management, Lodging and Casino Management, and Restaurant
It features state-of-the-art amenities such as garde manger, production and demonstration kitchens, a fully equipped beverage lab for mixology classes, a full-dining room, a state-of-the-art lecture hall for
cooking demonstrations, high-tech classroom space, and more. Originally built in 1903 in the Classical Beaux-Arts style, the building contains many historic touches, from the plaster to the painstakingly
restored woodwork, a terrazzo floor with a Grecian key pattern, and two faux fireplaces in the main-floor student lounge.
Parking is available in the lower lot of the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator at 120 Hawley Street. Additional parking is available on street, at the Collier Street Lot, and at the State Street Ramp.
