Signature Honors Project
March 11, 2020; The beginning of the end. On March 11, 2020, the students at East Carolina University received an email informing us that spring break had been extended and we would remain virtual indefinitely, little did we know what was to come in the next months. The first word that comes to mind about the ongoing pandemic is uncertainty, and that is why I have chosen to complete my signature honors project on creating events during a global pandemic. Being a hospitality student entering my senior year during a pandemic has caused anxiety and unrest in my life, as well as many others. I know that the career field I dreamed of being a part of 2 years ago is not the field I will be entering in December. Hospitality as we know it has completely changed. To ease my fear and that of others, I want to create and execute a hospitality event during a global pandemic to show that it is possible.
