4.0

WHAT I LIKED

I liked that the professors who were teaching the classes were passionate and showed great knowledge about what they were teaching. They also have backgrounds in the subjects they are teaching, for example, one of my professors owns multiple businesses and teaches us about business strategies on campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like the food because, for a culinary school, I would've preferred there to be more variety and accessibility.

Caitlin McCool
Needle Felting
Poetry
Painting and Studio Art
Baking

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

I loved the way Culinary Labs were structured, and that it was hands-on learning. The class schedule allowed me time to not only complete work, but also have time for friends and to relax. The surrounding area for the Harborside Campus also offered a lot. I spent many afternoons by the harbor water and many weekend mornings at the nearby farmer's market.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

You still have to take academic classes as a Pastry Major.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I loved the community, everyone is so nice and you will know everyone just after your first year.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food is horrible. The dining hall has some of the worst food I have ever eaten.
