Here on Monteagle Ridge, students are busy planning for College of Hospitality and Tourism Management Alumni Advantage (formerly Alumni & Friends Day). No event demonstrates the dedication of you - our valued alumni - to the success of the students more than the annual Alumni Advantage event. “Career Day” is an event in which we invite all of our alumni and friends of the college to campus for a day that allows students to learn from your experiences and advice.
Career Day is an important component of the college’s focus on experiential learning. The day is composed of several breakout sessions that allow you to participate in panel discussions, during which you are invited to share work experiences and knowledge of the industry. Students will also be given an opportunity to ask questions. By exposing the students to distinguished college alumni like you, they become more educated on life outside of the university and better equipped to enter the workforce.
The goal of this program is to help students gain valuable knowledge of the industry by having the opportunity to interact with industry leaders. Additionally, this program helps current students find jobs and internships through the networking opportunities provided. This, in turn, adds high quality professionals to the hospitality and tourism industries.
