At SHA, you get the best of both worlds, belonging to a tight-knit class of fewer than 160 students within Cornell's entering class of 3,100. You can enjoy all of Cornell's resources and opportunities within a richly diverse community while forming close bonds with classmates who share your interests and faculty who know you by name.

SHA offers many exceptional opportunities outside of the required curriculum, encouraging its students to explore their many interests and passions.

As a Hotelie, you will have a unique student experience. The opportunity to focus on research, to study abroad, to obtain solid management experience, to earn dual degrees, and to gain exposure to all aspects of the hospitality industry gives our students access to the best education in the world—and a clear advantage when entering the hospitality industry.

"Being a Hotelie means being a member of one of the most well-connected and integrated communities in the industry. It's not about being a part of a community just for your four years at Cornell; it's about joining a community for a lifetime."

"Hotel Ezra Cornell is one of the hallmarks of my Cornell career. The chance to run a hundred-million-dollar facility for a weekend and create an innovative and educational conference for the world's top business leaders is incredible."
