Professional Meetings Students participate in monthly meetings of
organizations such as the North of Boston Convention & Visitors
Bureau. At these meetings students have the opportunity to network with
future colleagues and listen to guest speakers. Topics may include how
to plan tourism in a down economy, marketing opportunities for your
business, and how to sell travelers insurance.
Service Learning Volunteering Experiences Students

is a teaching and learning method that connects meaningful community
service with academic learning, focusing on critical and reflective
thinking, and civic responsibility. Service-Leaning enhances what is
taught in college by extending students? learning beyond the classroom
and providing opportunities for students to use their emerging and
acquired skills and knowledge to meet real needs in the community.

volunteered at Lynn Arts Asssociation in Lynn, The National Park Service
in Salem, and Girls Lynn Inc. in Lynn.

classes such as Hotel Operations and Tour Management students may tour
the front and back of hotels to do what the industry calls "site
inspections" or students may take a walking tour of a particular city to
understand its tourism development.
