Description

Alumni are invited to return to Penn State School of Hospitality Management classrooms for the alumni outreach program that provides students with an opportunity to learn first-hand about the careers they are pursuing.

The two-day program includes alumni serving as guest presenters during regular classes as well as opportunity for alumni to engage with other alumni, faculty and graduate degree students during special topic education sessions.

In conjunction with the Alumni in the Classroom event, the Penn State Hotel & Restaurant Society (PSHRS) Alumni Awards Reception will be held at the Nittany Lion Inn Oct. 10, where several SHM alumni receive honors.
