One of the many Hotelie traditions was the publication of a yearbook until its last print run in 2003. New this year, we hope The 180 will honor the yearbook traditions of the past and start a new tradition of its own.
Although I’m well aware of how powerful the Hotelie network is, this trip really reaffirmed it for me. We were 2,631 miles away from Ithaca, but still somehow felt like everywhere we went, Cornell and SHA was with us.
Twenty students from the Hotel School witnessed firsthand how Royal Caribbean International successfully operates its cruises after they boarded the Enchantment of the Seas in February for a three-day experiential learning trip to the Bahamas.
Talking with administrators during the application process further highlighted the managerial focus of the program. I was not coming here to learn operations, I was coming here to learn how to be a leader in the industry.
The best part about being in the Hotel School is the flexibility it gives me for the future. The amount of different paths that Hotelies take is what makes it such an incredibly dynamic learning environment.
