About HEC

HEC stands for Hotel Ezra Cornell, which is an annual weekend-long educational conference put on by the students of the Cornell School of Hotel Administration for leaders of the hospitality industry. It is comprised of educational seminars, leisure activities, and food and beverage events. The purpose of the weekend is for students to practice the skills they have learned in the classroom and to showcase their talents to industry professionals.

The history of HEC

Now in its 82nd year, Hotel Ezra Cornell is a tradition older than the Hotel School itself. HEC dates back to 1925, when Dean Howard Meek took a group of students to New York City to manage the Hotel Astor for a day. "[1] Upon returning to Ithaca, the students decided to hold the grand opening of “The Only Hotel for a Day.” The students planned and managed an extravagant formal dinner party for the pioneers on the hospitality industry, and thus, on May 7, 1926, in Risley Hall on Cornell’s campus, Hotel Ezra Cornell was born. Entrance to the School of Hotel Administration The School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University is a school for hospitality management founded in 1922 as the first four-year school devoted to the field. ... Astor on the Lake The Astor on the Lake (also Astor Hotel) is a low-rise building located in the Yankee Hill neighborhood of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. ... The Risley Coat of Arms Prudence Risley Residential College for the Creative and Performing Arts, commonly known as Risley Hall, Risley Residential College, or just Risley, is a themed residence hall at Cornell University. ... Cornell is the name of some places in the United States of America. ...


The second year of HEC was a turning point in the history of the School. One of the world’s leading hotelier, Ellsworth Milton Statler, was a guest of honor, attending to find out whether the good rumors about Cornell’s hotel program were true. When the skeptic got up to speak at the formal dinner, the audience watched with silent apprehension. In two sentences, E.M. Statler breathed enduring life into the future of the Cornell Hotel School: “I’m converted. Meek can have any damn thing he wants.”"[2] Ellsworth Milton Statler (1863 - 1928) was a U.S. hotel businessman. ...


In years to come, HEC became more and more elaborate. The weekends began adopting themes. For example, HEC 60 was themed “Diamond Robbery” and took after a mystery theater. The whole weekend was centered on solving a fictitious diamond robbery, with each social event providing clues. By the end, particularly perceptive guests were able to solve the mystery! However, the themes ended with HEC 77, when the focus of the weekend shifted from socializing to learning.


Somewhere along the line—although no one knows exactly when—students coined the tag line “The Best Ever” to describe how their HEC would top all previous HECs. While Hotel Ezra Cornell has seen some memorable years—from E.M. Statler’s presence at HEC 2 to the dedication of Statler Hall at HEC 25—the best ever still lies ahead!"[3]


Important dates in the HEC timeline 1926: HEC 1 1927: Statler pledges support 1938: HEC is dedicated to Meek 1943: 20th Anniversary of hotel program, announcement that Statler Foundation would support new facility for school 1950: The cornerstone of Statler Hall is laid 1951: Meek is named director of hotel program; the new Statler Hall opens 1955: The Hotel School becomes an independent unit 1962: Meek’s last year, HEC is dedicated to him 1972: Educational focus introduced 1980: Formal dinner becomes multiple dinners—guests get to choose which dinner to attend 1988 & 1989: [Statler Hotel] under renovation, so HEC is held all over campus 1990: Grand Opening of Statler Hotel and J. Willard Marriott Executive Education Center (record number of industry leaders in attendance) 2005: First year with HEC to be held in the Robert A. and Jan M. Beck Center


Why HEC is so unique

HEC is unique because of the high degree of student involvement. Over the course of one academic year, the student Board of Directors, Board Assistants, and Function Managers plan every last detail of HEC, and on the big weekend, over 300 students get involved to make the effort a success. From the food on the guests’ plates to the decorations at all functions to the turndown service at night, everything is done by a student. Faculty members act only as advisors: ultimately, the entire weekend is in the hands of the students. As a practical experience for hotelies to apply their classroom studies and impress hospitality professionals, HEC is truly the cornerstone of the Hotel School experience.
