“I frequently tell people that half the value of my Cornell Hotel School education has come after graduation. Connecting with alumni through the Cornell Hotel Society has not only benefited me professionally, but has provided some very enjoyable “Hotelie moments” like a private lunch with Robert Mondavi in his vineyards. Hotelies are very diverse, but we all share a common belief that service is not demeaning. Providing joy to others is something very noble.”
