HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM STUDENTS OF MARSHALLS HOST COCKTAIL EVENT

Date: 06/14/2017

Third Year students of the Marshalls School of Arts and Social Sciences’ Hospitality and Tourism Class hosted a cocktail event as part of their assessment requirements for the academic semester. The banquet programme was a specimen project intended to fete and to introduce the Marshalls community to the undertakings of hospitality and tourism management.

In attendance were Dr. Tetteh Nettey, Prof. Benony Kortatsi and Mr. Owusu-Brimpong, the Group president of the Meridian-Marshalls Holdings, the President and Vice President of Marshalls respectively. Others were the faculty members of the School of Arts and Social Sciences, faculty members of other Schools, staff and students, as well as the Level 300 Hospitality and Tourism Management class, which was the host of the event.

The class was divided into three units- the production team, which was in charge of culinary activities, the event organizers, who were tasked with the planning and production of the event, and the service team, which was in charge of waiting and ushering. The event was live online on marshallsonlineradio, which also provided the sound input at the function.

Ms Lashmina Naa Korkor welcomed all guests, introduced the event and the Chair of the function, Dr. Tetteh Nettey amid rapturous applause. Students and lecturers shared ideas and deliberations behind the many cocktail tables stocked with finger foods as the well-dressed ushers patrolled to and fro with trays of pastries and drinks.

Dr. Tetteh Nettey praised the lecturers and students for such a good job and expressed his admiration for the decorations and costuming, but urged the students to dedicate more attention to detail and planning. Mr. John Amanor, senior lecturer of hospitality management and supervisor of the project shared Dr. Nettey’s sentiments, while speaking to marshallsonlineradio. He disclosed that the event and all inputs, such as publicity, decoration and food will all be assessed for the awarding of marks.

The event itself was both well patronized and well organized, with so much glitz and glamour in an atmosphere of cool classical music and splendid decorations themed on Marshalls’ traditional blue and yellow colours. Most attendees wore tuxedoes or other formal costumes.

The Marshalls School of Arts and Social Sciences also offers undergraduate certification in Leather Technology and Fashion Technology. Other schools in Marshalls are the School of Business, School of Technology and School of Modern Languages.
