Student Executive Welcome 2015/16

Dear Students,

On behalf of the Student Executive Committee, we are pleased to welcome you to the 2015/2016 academic year at the University of the West Indies, Centre for Hotel and Tourism Management.

As students, we recognize you as an integral part in our community and your role in advancing our school’s reputation for being one of the best hospitality and tourism institutions in the Caribbean region.

Likewise, learning at the Centre for Hotel and Tourism Management extends far beyond our classrooms, kitchen and restaurant. We learn a great deal from each other, through the diversity in our backgrounds, talents and cultures.

Therefore, we encourage you to not be fearful in making the best of your tenure here at this institution and we hope your experience here will be exciting and challenging in new and different ways.

Again, welcome and we look forward to meeting each and every one of you.

Have a great year guys!
