Nearly 250 students flooded the Statler Hall Beck Center Park Atrium for the open house hosted by the Centers and Institutes (C&I) at the School of Hotel Administration (SHA). Held on Friday, September 2, the event was a collaboration with the Office of Student Services as part of SHA’s Student Orientation of first year and transfer students. The academic directors of each C&I spoke to the group just prior to the open house event, and students could learn more about the events, programs, and activities offered by the C&Is. This is a great opportunity for us to reach out to students early in their college careers and expose them to what CREF has to offer. An increasing number of students indicate they have an interest in real estate when they arrive at SHA.
