On Saturday, September 18, students and faculty members
at the Dubrovnik campus united their forces to mark the World Cleanup Day 2021
by organizing and executing a cleanup action of the area surrounding our
campus. The idea started off as a spontaneous and generic communication between
Dr. Marlena Ćukteraš, who is teaching Environmental Science courses, and Milena
Kužnin, who is teaching HTM courses. It did not take long for them to find a
group of enthusiastic students who were happy to take part in the initiative, followed
by Kevin Walker, the HTM Area Head.
"It is wonderful to see how quickly and efficiently we are
able to come up with an idea and bring it to reality. By taking part in events
of this nature, students have the opportunity to exercise experiential learning
(Plan-Do-Reflect) and at the same time, have a positive impact on the community
by contributing their knowledge, time and effort for a good cause”, commented
"Students are very supportive and positive about community events; they feel more connected to each other, to RIT Croatia and to the community in general, and they often state there should be more of similar events in the future” said Milena and concluded that "many of the students who volunteered for this event are also members of the Eta Sigma Delta honorary society and this event was just one in a series of service related events that will be done by ESD students throughout the academic year. Whenever possible and aligned with their goals, the ESD members will cooperate with Dr. Marlena Ćukteraš or any other faculty members of RIT Croatia community in order to support their activities”.
Senior capstone project is the crown of education at RIT Croatia for graduating students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program. Senior year students choose topics based on their own interests, which gives them the opportunity to tackle anything they find interesting and worth exploring. Creating a successful senior capstone project is a complex process which requires a lot of maturing along the way, a lot of problem solving, researching and, above all, a good and firm connection with the faculty member mentoring the whole process.
Eta Sigma Delta (ESD), an honorary society for students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program at RIT Croatia's Dubrovnik campus, held its induction ceremony to welcome 10 new members on Thursday, April 29 at the Hotel Hilton Imperial.
After an exciting weekend in Dubrovnik, filled with interactive workshops and final presentations done by all finalists, we are happy to announce the winners of the Hospitality Star Search Contest 2022!
As part of RIT Croatia’s celebration of its 25th anniversary, the college organized a creativity competition for its students. Students were invited to produce a video, an image, or a text on the topic of celebrating 25 years of RIT Croatia.
