The Significance of the Pineapple
  • Symbol of Hospitality American colonists began
    importing the pineapple from the Caribbean in the
    17th century. Due to its seemingly exotic
    qualities and rareness, the pineapple soon became
    a symbol of hospitality in early America. 
    Because trade routes between America and
    Caribbean islands were often slow and perilous,
    it was considered a significant achievement for a
    host to procure a ripe pineapple for guests.
    Similarly, some accounts tell of New England sea
    captains who, upon returning from trade routes in
    the Caribbean or Pacific, would place a pineapple
    outside their homes as a symbol of a safe

History of Hospitality continued
  • Due to its association with warmth and
    friendliness, pineapples in America were often
    used as the crowning piece in large displays of
    food.  Similarly, the pineapple symbol was used
    frequently in the 18th and 19th centuries to
    decorate bed posts, tablecloths, napkinsanything
    associated with welcoming guests.  Today, the
    pineapple remains a fitting symbol for the
    hospitality industry, and pineapple-themed
    products still abound.  From lamps to candle
    holders to salt and pepper shakers and beyond,
    the pineapple motif says Welcome!

    work experience.

HADM 4900 Frequently asked questions
  • What are examples of structured internship
  • Disney World offers a structured internship
    program. Although a student typically stays in

    sessions, managers meetings, etc. The

    internships but these three provide an example of
    how internship programs can vary.

    management-level position prior to coming to
    school, 50 of those work hours can count toward
    the work study requirement if the position was
    held within the last three years.

    impressive resumes. If an individual has not
    worked in the industry for the last three to five
    years, more recent work experience is vitally
