Welcome to the Hospitality Management (HM) website where you will find information and resources if you are an HM major or HM minor.

Check back regularly for updates and news about scholarship opportunities, course information, The Hospitality Society, and advising.

Speaking of advising - every semester, as an HM major or minor, you will automatically have an electronic hold placed on your account before registration for the next semester. In order to remove the hold and register for new classes, you will need to meet with a hospitality advisor before your registration begins.

An email from the department with information to sign up for an advising appointment will be sent to you prior to the continuing undergraduate student registration start date.
