On November 8, 2015, Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) students traveled to New York to compete in the inaugural Smith Travel Research student market study. Over 28 universities, each representing a different city, presented a comprehensive hotel-market study. SF State’s team researched and presented the city of San Francisco. The students did an amazing job! Competing against seven finalists from around the nation, the SF State team was awarded second best team in the nation!
Other competing teams included Penn State, UNLV, NYU, Purdue, FIU, and Texas Tech. The HTM student team were Tu Dinh, Yuan Feng, Tianyu Chen, and Lauren Rojo. The HTM department plans to compete again in 2016.
