Meet Ariel

Ariel Staffin is a senior in the hotel school. After completing her freshman year at Rutgers University, she transferred to the Hotel School where she was ecstatic to join such an incredible and welcoming community. Ariel's love for hospitality started at a young age, as she was always found helping with dinner, setting the table, or planning events for her family. Ariel is interested in event planning and operations and has career aspirations to open her own restaurant one day.

Ariel is the Food & Beverage Director for HEC 97. She was a designer for HEC 95 and the Design Director for HEC 96. She is super excited to get to further explore her passions for F&B operations, service, and events on such an incredible industry platform.

Outside of HEC, Ariel is a TA for the infamous wines class, involved with Christian Union, and a sister of Phi Sigma Sigma Sorority. She is also in the Army National Guard and Cornell's ROTC program, and she's a candidate in the Miss America Organization. In her free time, you can probably find Ariel cooking, eating cheez-its, or watching Wonder Woman for the 17th time.
