Hudson County Community College – “Culinary Student for the Day” Structured Learning Experience
Six County Prep culinary arts students visited Hudson County Community College on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 to participate in their “ Culinary Student for the Day” program. Tamera Alicea, Kyra Amaya, Joshua Lopez, William Matlock, Chelsea Steward, and Antonia Tsielepas were part of an excellent experience. The students cycled through the various culinary labs to gain exposure to the post-secondary culinary arts program and to “feel” what it is like to be a college student. They also had the opportunity to interact with the professors and to partake in “hands-on” activities in the various kitchens. The students met with an admissions counselor to review the application process. At the conclusion of the tour, the students attended a luncheon in the dining hall that was served and prepared by the culinary college students. Overall, it was an invaluable structured learning experience that defined a potential career option for our students.
