15th – 20th of January #ajutBradet

After a tragic event that took place at the Bradet Centre Orphanage, American Hotel Academy students decided to step in once again an offer a little help and comnpassion. We gathered clothes, toys, bed settings and money to replace what has been destroyed in the fire.

“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”

13th of January – Welcome Back Party

What better way to give a warm WELCOME to the students than organizing a Welcome Back Party? We highlighted a great start to the Second Semester of this academic year. Everybody got to catch up, to enjoy an amazing night and to even enjoy some traditional Romanian music.For more pictures please check our Facebook page.

6th of December – AHA X-mas Party

In order to make the students associate kindness with fun and to get the Christmas Spirit going, we managed to introduce an event on the 6th of December where the AHA family had a blast. Also, the students had a fun activity – Secret Santa – from which all of them left with a little present. For more pictures please check our Facebook page.

5th – 9th of December – KINDness Week – fundraising event

It was a challenge to organize and form a structure for this particular event but since it was for a great cause, we managed to focus and give our best. The event was spread throughout one week, in which the students experienced different themes each day but with the same purpose – to raise money and gather donations for Bradet Orphanage. The event overall was a success as many students got involved and helped by either donating objects or purchasing items from our stands. We combined kindness with pleasure and created wonderful memories. For more pictures please check our Facebook page.

As we did in the previous years, we organized the event American Hotel Academy Movie Night, where the students could enjoy a wonderful movie, related to the hospitality industry and just have a relaxing evening.

5th of November – Internship and Career

The best way to encourage other people to step out of their comfort zone is to make them confront their fears. The students had to do a little storytelling regarding their experience in their first internship. The event was a success as people were delighted to find out what is an internship all about.For more pictures please check our Facebook page.

31st of October – AHA Halloween Party

It all started with a holiday and a theme. Since Halloween was just around the corner, the students had the occasion to dress up in the craziest costumes and enjoy a night in Brasov’s most spacious and popular club – MOVe. The event itself was entertaining and there was also a costume contest in which the participants had to go through some amusing situations. For more pictures please check our Facebook page.

4th of October – AHA Welcome Party

Even better than an icebreaker meeting, the best way to make people loosen up and see that American Hotel Academy students know how to have fun, is to make them come to a party and have a blast. With that being said, the AHA Welcome Party was the starter of new friendships that will most definitely last for a lifetime. All of the students gathered to start the academic year in an entertaining manner. Also, the students got the chance to meet the academy’s friendly DJ, Stefan Chitoi, who kept the party going.

28th of September – American Hotel Academy Icebreaker

Since the best idea to form a family and to get along with each other is to socialize and to actually get to know the new and the old students; the first informal event was an American Hotel Academy Icebreaker  / socialising event in which students got the chance to meet new people. All in all, it was a socializing event for the students in order for them to start building their frienships at American Hotel Academy.

28th of September 2016 – Opening Ceremony

The first event that started the academic year 2016-2017 was the Opening Ceremony which was described as being grand and spectacular. For more pictures please check our Facebook page.
