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.
