Student Voices

I was in the middle of a serious career shift. The financial support from the Worker Retraining program made it possible for me to complete this training.”
David Blum, Class of 2022 Human Services
The Culinary Arts program is so worth it! The work is challenging but you will not be alone. There are so many faculty and staff willing to help. It is a phenomenal, hands-on experience. I am so confident in my skills now. I feel great.
