Penn State Hotel & Restaurant Society

PSHRS is the umbrella student organization in the School of Hospitality Management, and also serves as the student chapter of the School of Hospitality Management’s 9,000-member-strong alumni society.

All students upon their entry into the program become members and may continue as a member of the alumni chapter of this group upon graduation. The purpose of the organization is to unite and build closer fellowship among the students, alumni, and faculty of the school with the objectives of strengthening all the professions of the program and building the reputation of the school. Student members can be active in any of the committees of the club: education, alumni relations, social, fundraising, and community service. This organization provides trips to Washington, D.C. and the Annual HX: Hotel Experience in New York City.
