Hotel Department Provides New Opportunities Professor Harry Purchse, who returned last year to head the Hotel department, has introduced two innovations designed to give students broader opportunities to gain practical experience — the European Study Tour and the Black Tie Dinner. Both have met with great success and promise to become yearly events. The first European Study Tour was offered last summer. This tour supplements the traditional sum­ mer Work Practice Program in the Hotel Saranac by enabling students with a special interest in travel and tourism to go abroad and study the operation of a wide variety of resorts, restaurants and hotels, as well as meet with top European travel authorities. Six­ teen students signed up and, with Mr. and Mrs. Purchase, toured England, Wales, Scotland, France, and Switzerland rom June 25 to July 29. Mr. Purchase, desiring to expand educational opportunities in the Hotel curriculum, visited London over the Christmas break to meet with Professor Medlik of the Uni­ versity of Surrey. He was inter­ ested in exploring the possibility of summer classes for PSC stu­ dents at that university.
