Hospitality Students Staff Detroit Conference on Geotourism
October 14, 2013
As a hands-on learning experience, four Flint campus Ferris students, with instructor Dr. Lorie Tuma, participated in the 2013 International Society of Travel & Tourism Educators conference on Geotourism in Detroit, MI. The conference program can be seen online.
The four students helped to organize the conference, register attendees, direct guests, and more, which provided real-world course-work for their Convention & Meeting Sales class. Student travel was financed through Academic Service Learning funds.
