The Hospitality Management Club (HMC)

Welcome to an outstanding opportunity to build on your successful journey in hospitality management at Kansas State University. The Hospitality Management Club (HMC) is a student club that combines the talents and energy of business-minded individuals who are passionate about customer service and ready to serve and embrace the myriad of opportunities available in this ever-changing world of hospitality.

What’s HMC up to?

Throughout the semester, HMC connects with various businesses in Manhattan and surrounding areas to learn from hospitality professionals. Whether that is getting tours of event spaces, restaurants, hotels, or entertainment venues HMC members are getting to see the hospitality industry firsthand. We also like to hold volunteer opportunities, not only to give back to the community but to give students real-life experiences and help them in their college careers.
