The Cornell Hotel Society

The Cornell Hotel Society is an engaged network of dynamic, imaginative leaders sharing tradition, friendship, passions and ideas because of the shared belief that life is service. CHS is inspired to create enriching experiences for others, celebrating what it means to be a Hotelie for life.


The Cornell Hotel Society, Collegiate Chapter is the student assembly of the Nolan School of Hotel Administration and the oldest chapter of CHS based in Ithaca, New York. Cornell Hotel Society works with the administration and alumni to develop student involvement in Hotel School organizations and industry events. The Collegiate Chapter of CHS provides students opportunities to learn more about the fields of the hospitality industry that they are interested in, develop their leadership skills, and form a wide network of individuals who can support students into their careers.

This network brings students and alumni together by offering a meaningful platform for Hotelies to connect, share friendships, and further professional endeavors. The organization advances the interests of the school, its students, and alumni worldwide, and serves to support industry leaders - today and for generations to come.
