    Welcome Week

    Welcome Week is always organized at the beginning of the academic year, with the help and involvement of senior students (Student Ambassadors).
     Through this period, all first year students take part in the orientation program that introduces them to their academic curricula, student services, student government, internships, rules and regulations, dress code, on campus facilities, lecturers, staff, colleagues and many more, everything with a mix of social activities which are meant to connect all American Hotel Academy community members.
    For the existing students it is a “welcome back” to school when the curricula for the next academic year and the new lecturers are introduced.

    Resources and Online Access


    The Academy has a library located on the ground floor. All of the material relevant to courses taught is held at the Library and is available in electronic format. Most electronic resources are available both on and off campus. During the Orientation students are informed about the opening hours, resources available and group study room availability.

    Student Email

    Each student is assigned a professional email account that they can use in order to communicate with the school and with prospective employers or to create accounts on professional platforms like Linked In. As with all resources provided by the school, we kindly ask you to use the email responsibly and to follow the internet usage rules and regulations.

    Online Campus

    OnlineCampus is an online platform that keeps you connected to all the important information and events taking place in the Academy. Through OnlineCampus you can have quick 24/7 access to news, schedule, grades, courses, attendance, resources, handouts, online library, information about internships, forms, faculty, student handbook and academic rules & regulations.

    Student Counselling

    This activity provides a safe place, separate from your daily life, where you can explore issues or feelings which are causing you distress. The counsellor will relate to you in a supportive and purposeful manner and assist you in the task of finding your own way forward.

    An amazing team, a multitude of outstanding events, happy faces and great times - those are the words I would use to describe my experience as the President of the Student Government team. It has been a year full of challenges and rewarding moments, of misunderstandings and difficult situations solved over a cup of coffee with people that I grew to love. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, it changed me, made me improve and want to become better and because of that, I will never forget it.

    Camela Tiju

    Student Body President

    During my experience with the Student Government I developed both personally and professionally by having around me a team of wonderful people and participating to all sorts of special activities. There are so many different things to do in so many different events. They manage somehow to prepare us not only for our careers, but also for different situations that we might encounter in our lives. I encourage every spirited person to get involved and join the Student Government. They will not regret it.

    Catalina Vaida

    Events Department

    The Student Government is very united. We always discuss and communicate. We learned along the way how to help and complete each other above everything. We learned how to work together as a team to create social events, charitable events and various activities for all the TASTE and AHA students. I am proud to be part of the Student Government, I believe in our team and I wish that in the future the team stays as united and as great as it is now. I wish that they are successful in everything that they do.

    Roxana Draghiceanu

    Head of Sales & Marketing Department

    I must say I was skeptical at first about joining the Student Government, but now I am very happy I've decided to join it. The main selling point for me has been how this is the concept of a group of students coming up with ideas or plans and organizing them for all students, ranging from social nights to charity events. The team is full of energy and eager to do as many wonderful things as possible. It is an unique experience that I would recommend to everybody that is interested.
