Giroux Glass on UNLV College of Hospitality

Fifty years ago, a small “hotel” department at a little-known university in the desert started as the “College of Hotel Administration.” Over the next five decades, it became the University of Nevada at Las Vegas’ (UNLV’s) flagship program, and one of the top-ranked hospitality colleges in the world. To celebrate its fiftieth anniversary this Spring, the college launched its new state-of-the art academic building, renaming it, “William F.

Acing Finals: Our Recycled Materials, Two UNLV Students’ Treasure

We have a special place in our company, and in our hearts, for the kind of people who are motivated and enthusiastic about learning; for people who study and examine thoughtfully so as to enable themselves and others to succeed—in short, for students. Giroux Glass often works alongside educational institutions of all levels. Whether we’re installing glazing systems at a school, seen volunteering at campus beautification days, offering grants and scholarships for our partners’ education, or employing college interns (who currently work in our Contract Administration, Information Technology, and Marketing departments), we highly value and support our next generation of [...]
