Cornell Hotelies: Celebrate Our Centennial

In recognition of a century as the premier hospitality educator, we have set an ambitious goal to raise $10,000 from 100 or more donors to support student scholarships.

A Milestone 100 Years in the Making

What began as Cornell’s Program in Hotel Management in 1922, has evolved into the epicenter of hospitality that it is todayFor 100 years, Hotelies have been changing the face of this rapidly evolving industryemerging as hospitality business leaders who have shown that a service mindset drives success. Their accomplishments can be traced to every aspect of the hospitality industry, and today, this growing community of innovators and trailblazers includes 14,000 dedicated alumni! 

Now, as we mark this historic milestone, there has never been a better time for generations of Hotelies to come together to celebrate the accomplishments of the last century and build a foundation for the next 100 years.  

Our Future Has Never Been Brighter  

Over the course of the last century, as we have evolved, our commitment to prepare the leaders and innovators who will solve our most pressing industry issues and leave their mark on the world, remains our north star.  

At the Cornell Nolan Hotel School, the future has never been brighter, thanks to the smart, dedicated and, passionate students who call our school home. We look to the future, we know that Hotelies will continue to lead our industry forward.  

To build on this growth and progress, as we invest in our  future, we are calling on our expansive Hotelie community to make a gift in support of the Cornell Nolan Hotel School Annual Fund for Scholarship. 

Help Hotelies Lead the Way 

Scholarships provide critical support for today’s Hotelies, creating access and opportunity for aspiring hospitality leaders to pursue their passion and bring their talents to our campus. Your scholarship gift provides students the financial flexibility to pursue the immersive, experiential education that defines life as a Hotelie.  


A Historic Moment: A Toast to Our Future 

Celebrations like this only come once in a lifetime! This is your chance to be part of our history by investing in our future. Your gift will open a world of opportunity for the next generation of Hotelies, ultimately enabling us to continue to prepare tomorrow's leaders to positively shape our industry, and our world.
