Fourth-year hospitality major Elizabeth Prater was among the hundreds of employees and volunteers at this year’s PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y. Serving as a host in the Wannemaker VIP Tent on the grounds of the country club, she had a chance to meet-and-greet some of the 18,000-plus guests attending the final practice day of the tournament on Aug. 7. Prater, a Fairport resident, and several other students in RIT’s School of International Hospitality and Service Innovation worked at the event as interns or co-ops with the PGA, Oak Hill or Levy’s Restaurants, learning firsthand the coordination and details required to successfully manage a major professional golf tournament. The hospitality students were among several groups from RIT, including alumni, students from ITS and others, helping out with the event.
