The purpose of Sigma Iota is to unify all students within the School of Hospitality Business Management in the Carson College of Business at Washington State University. Sigma Iota will allow every student an opportunity to get involved with the university, the Carson College, and the hospitality program. Sigma Iota will provide a forum for students to network within the organization and with other hospitality clubs.
We meet bi monthly in Todd. To find exact dates and times go to the Facebook page/website.
Sigma Iota is an “umbrella” club for the School of Hospitality Business Management which provides a group to which all hospitality majors/minors can belong. Sigma Iota serves as a freestanding club while providing members access to four additional hospitality clubs/student organizations (Ambassadors, Eta Sigma Delta, National Society of Minorities in Hospitality, and Professional Convention Management Association).
