It €™s Time for Freshmen Showcase!

So it €™s that time of year again when all the new freshman have the chance to showcase their talents in front of their family, friends, and prospective students. There is a lot of talk in the hallways and the kitchens about you guys being nervous and what Freshman Showcase may involve. First off, there is nothing to be nervous about…Freshman Showcase is all about you as a student showing your family members what you have been doing and learning about these first eight weeks here at Walnut Hill College and making them proud. All students are split up into different action stations around campus. An example of some stations would be bread, sushi, flambé, wine, and demo. If you are lucky enough to be chosen for the demo stations you will be down at the center for hospitality studies at the 4100 building to help the Chef Instructor prepare their signature dish in front of your family members and your peers €™ family members. During the night, you do get a break and get to walk around with the people who came to support you which would be your opportunity to show off how great our college is and get to walk around and see what all goes on throughout the night. So have no fear or anxiety about the evening, as all it is, is a celebration of your accomplishments thus far and a great night out for the people who care about you the most!
