Using characteristics inclusive of employment, Grade point average and career orientation; either front of house (Academic) or back of house (vocational) ,the Educational Satisfaction with Curriculum Index is designed to measure the satisfaction numerically of hotel and Restaurant management students at New York City Technical College (NYCTC) where students, regardless of career orientation, are required to complete both sets of courses (front and back of house.) This requirement is referred to as cross-curriculum training. FoH students scored greater satisfaction on BoH courses than FoH courses. The same was true of BoH students as they scored1 higher on FoH courses than BoH courses. Employed students scored lower than unemployed students. Finally, students with a GPA greater than 3 . 0 scored higher than those below 3.0.
