So, it is time for an update! The weather has been quite good the last couple of weeks and many activities have been happening lately at the school, I was thinking that this time I would try to summarize a little of what has been going on in the student life, on and off campus.
First of all I would like to mention the successful Alumni meeting that took place last Sunday, on the 20th of August. During this meeting, students from Les Roches were able to interact with the Les Roches Alumni in a Grand Reunion with Les Roches graduates from years 1990 to 1995. These Alumni meetings have been arranged previously but this was the first time only graduates from these years gathered and came to the campus to interact with us. This was a great opportunity for all of us who wanted to find out more about how the opportunities of having studied in Les Roches helped them to enter the real world of hospitality.
Mr. Nicholas Allen, a Les Roches graduate from 1992, and a group of Les Roches Alumni came up with this great idea, along with the help provided by the Les Roches Alumni representatives and the CDIP office (the Career Development and Industry Placement).
We all had a wonderful time accompanied by nice food and soft drinks by the school pool on this Sunday afternoon. Getting acquainted with former students who are now managers of hotels, directors of restaurants, clubs, cruise companies and high representatives of numerous hospitality related companies is really outstanding.
I have to say that it was great to get advice from them, answers to questions that we as students have and just listen to their life experiences in different companies. It was indeed a great opportunity to make contacts for our future career and on behalf of all the students who attended this session, it was a real pleasure to share this with you all and below I have a few pics to share with you!
Brazilian former graduates 1990 – 1995 thanks for the click!!
I also wanted to post a few pics about some activities that some courses like HO2 students (Hotel Operations II) have lately performed. Thanks to Johanne Fremmich for the pics of her and her classmates during the internship fair that they prepared in order for everyone to know more about the hotel they worked in, the activities and the tasks that they performed during their period of internship. This was really a source of information for a lot of students who are starting to apply for internships and training programs. Great work guys!!!
