Program Co-Curricular Activities (HTMS)
The Ledger is a student newsletter that is published each semester and distributed
to Hospitality and Tourism Industry. The newsletter informs all of our alumni and
industry friends what’s happening and what is new at the university and with the Hospitality
and Tourism Studies Program. The Ledger features articles and profiles of prominent
figures at the university. Any student can get involved with this publication. You
