Student Organizations

Want to have fun and develop your leadership skills and professional contacts at the same time? Then join one or more of the College's student clubs and organizations. There are more than 30 to choose from, and each gives you the opportunity to apply what you're learning in the classroom while making lifelong friends. Here are a few organizations you might consider joining as a hotel and restaurant management student:

  • Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) is an organization that is committed to learning about country clubs, city clubs, athletic clubs, etc. As a student chapter, we network closely with our sponsor chapters in St. Louis and Kansas City. With them, we are increasing awareness about the country club industry and the management jobs within. The student chapter meets once a month for educational and recreational activities. The club has club tours and attends the world conference for CMAA members each February. Networking with other club members and managers can lead to to the best jobs possible after graduation.
