Allison Beach, MSW, LICSW
My 2nd year at
This year a typical weekday for me on the Cornell campus is something, I have never experience before. I wake up, start school, and sleep. I have lecture from 8-11 in the morning about the hotel industry. In the afternoon we learn about business writing and presentation in the computer lab from 1PM to 4PM, leaving me with 2 hours of free time per day.
Over the past week I have experienced an abundant amount of rigorous assignments. I have had to read an average of 25 pages per night on the lodging industry and the history about hotel. Every afternoon, I am exposed to new software, specify Microsoft Office 2007. Today I turned in my first business memo about my strategy toward running my own 250 rooms upper-upscale hotel simulation, which was done using Microsoft word 2007. This weekend I will have my hand full with my assigned group working on a PowerPoint Presentation about the Marriot International Hotel, which will be present on Monday during Lecture time.
