What is Senior Seminar All About?

Montague and Associates is a student run, professionally driven organization that has developed future industry leaders and Temple University Alumni for nearly 20 years. The company is managed by Assistant Dean Jeffrey Montague and operated by his two Senior Professional Development Seminar branches in the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management. Seniors with interests in Tourism, Hospitality, Sports, and Recreation Management make up the uniquely diverse population of employees at Montague and Associates. Our shared passion for global integration, community support, and developing interpersonal social intelligence is fostered inside and out of classroom. There are no ceilings or barriers restraining our abilities to grow as students, professionals, and as equals. The Senior Seminar gives each student a chance to start taking themselves a little more seriously, and starts using their skills to prepare for the future.
The classroom is run like a business, and the students are treated like employees. We are all working towards a common goal as individuals and as a company. Our purpose in the service industry is to deliver our superb and memorable service to the public, and the world. Now, as seniors and future Alumni of the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management, we are here to deliver all of you our genuine and authentic service as your fellow students, peers, and businessmen and women.The world is composed of all walks of life and traditions. As members of Montague and Associates, the Senior Professional Development Seminar, and Temple University, we carry on a tradition that has placed Temple Alumni with careers in nearly 200 countries around the world. We seek to celebrate and share the continuous aging of our family’s roots, our own personal worth, cultural appreciation, and global expansion. This is why our mission is to educate, mentor, and inspire fellow STHM Students and peers to cultivate interpersonal development and global awareness in the class room and in our own everyday lives.

Record Setting CPR Fundraiser!

April 15th and 16th were two of the most successful days in the CPR Fundraisers’ history. No seminar class has ever reached the mark of 100 participants within their event. This semester proved to be different! On a whole, the Seminar Class was able to certify 120 people during the two days the fundraiser was run. On top of the record setting participation, each section of Senior Seminar was able to raise $1,000 for the respective classes. The Volunteer and Marketing committees did a great job getting this event running.

The Senior Seminar class owes Mr. Earl Ostrander and his wife thanks for a fun and exciting event. Not only did they keep us entertained, they also conducted a very informative presentation.

2011 Fight For Air Stair Climb

On Saturday, March 19th the Section 2 Senior Seminar class volunteered in the American Lung AssociationsFight For Air Stair Climb. These Stair Climbs usually take place in large skyscrapers or arenas where participants can challenge their own physical fitness, race against others or to meet new friends. These climbs are a great way to support those who have lung disease and also as a remembrance to those who have passed. This volunteer experience is just one of the many each Senior Seminar student will be attending.
