Student Spotlight: Konner Smith
"I chose this major because I love people and I love traveling. There's so many opportunities to travel, and there's so much you can do through Hospitality and Tourism - like airlines, cruises, restaurants, hotels, and casinos. I hope to one day have a career in sales and marketing for hotels and resorts. I enjoy the aspects of booking rooms, talking with event planners, and setting up for conferences. That's why I chose Residence Inn by Marriott as my internship."
