Student Events

The senior send off is a grand celebration that pays tribute to the hard work, notable accomplishments, and lasting memories of the members of The Hotel School’s senior class. Accomplished guest speakers are invited to offer their insights about the hotel industry to the graduating seniors, all of this occurring in conjunction with fun activities, delicious food and beverages, and special awards. It is the unofficial final time that the entire class gathers together before commencement, which adds a bit of nostalgia to this touching moment.

The CHS NYC Hotelie Weekend is a three day trip to Manhattan that provides participants with the opportunity to learn about the industry, bond with fellow hotelies, and network with Alumni from varying fields within the hospitality industry. The itinerary for the trip includes hotel and restaurant tours, sit down meals with Alumni, engaging industry panels, and fun Saturday night events.
