Wildcat orientation session. Starting off really good so far. Great rates at the hotels if you mention that you are staying for orientation . Great information on what to do while your student is at orientation. I had a good time.

I love everything about this place, however, you must see it for yourself, especially if you're a student trying to find a new school.

This is an excellent culinary school. In fact, it is known nationally and churns out a lot of successful chefs. The only drawback is that it is located in a bad (crime-ridden) section of Providence.

We went for a cooking class a while ago, and really enjoyed it. They are a bit expensive, but the small weekend classes give you a lot of individual attention. We left with some great recipes, and you get a wonderful lunch that you have helped prepare. Ours was the New England cuisine class, so tons of seafood made it... More

The culinary museum at the harborsidencampus campus is really well done. It is in the back of the library building. Parking is a bit of a problem with hundreds of students cars, but it is worth the visit if you have not been here before. Very interesting and well done.
