Spending a Day with an Alumnus

The Spend a Day with an Alumnus program is designed to give students an opportunity to see what “a day in the life” is all about for those alumni in different occupational areas of this industry. By pairing up students with alumni from their field of interest, we provide an opportunity for the students to go on site to the alum’s place of business in order to experience some of the daily operations at a hospitality organization.

Alumni need to define a clear outline of activities for the day that the student will partake in while on site. The student needs to have completed at least 60 credit hours of coursework and/or be of junior status and maintain a 2.5 GPA, or higher. Alumni and students are partnered according to the area of interest. Only one student will be assigned to one alumnus. The “shadow” date is mutually agreed upon by the student and the alumnus, but is to take place between October and May of the respective academic school year.
