5 College Freshman

Academics: The experience so far is great. I can't wait for classes to start

4 College Freshman

Academics: Things are a little different here we have Trimester instead of semester. You usually have 3 to 4 classes a term and you only have class Monday thru Thursday

4 College Senior

Academics: its a good school for becoming a well rounded educated chef.

3 College Senior

Academics: The school offers a abundant amount of outside programs that many of the lab professors often talk about and influence

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Right now my major at my school is liberal arts. I chose that until I had decided what I wanted to major in for my bachelors. The workload is about average, manageable at least, as well well the curriculum. I don't really have an unique aspects worth describing about my program because liberal arts is one of the most boring majors I have ever encountered. I sat and learned about things I didn't care about because people told me I had to. When I much rather transfer and start taking classes that pertain to my interests and my desired degree.
