Cornell's hotel school continues to show the way for tomorrow's hospitality executives through Dean's Lecture Series
It’s the first day of class at Cornell University and its prestigious School of Hotel Administration in Ithaca, NY, and the school’s home, Statler Hall, is buzzing with students as the realities of a new school year and the memories of summer switch mental positions. Nowhere is that psychological transition more obvious than on the faces of the freshmen. You can spot them a mile away, shiny new backpacks, apprehensive gait and all. It is these freshmen that represent the future leadership of the hospitality industry. Yes that’s an easily-stated, eye-rolling cliché for any freshman class in any school. But when it comes to Cornell’s School of Hotel Administration students, it’s actually born out to be true.
