Friday, March 18marked WHC €™s Freshman Showcase, during which our campus was turned into a wonderland of food, drink, and decor. Upon arrival, guests received a “passport” directing them through different cultural experiences for the palate. The red carpet was rolled out and guests were invited to walk through the restaurants, kitchens, and classrooms to sample sweet and savory morsels and assorted beverages–including wine for those of age! Cheers to our wonderful freshmen and all of the faculty and staff who helped to make Friday night so delectable!
Freshman Showcase was a truly delightful display of how hard each student has worked so far in their career at Walnut Hill College. Culinary, pastry, and management skills were crucial in pulling off such a large and amazing event. Guests were treated to delicious seafood, some Italian staples, a chocolate fountain, and many other themed savory treats! Every aspect of our newest students’ knowledge was put to the test for their family, friends, and even future colleagues, as some incoming students attended to see what they have to look forward to later this year. The freshmen have already expanded their knowledge in their short time at the college, and Friday €™s event certainly reinforced all of their hard work and proved they have the passion to showcase their technical skills and creative expertise. Families and friends were undoubtedly impressed with the visual presentation and, of course, all of the food upon which they feasted! Hats off to the freshman class at Walnut Hill College. Keep up the beautiful and tasty work!
Sunday, March 13 marked graduation at Walnut Hill College. Although it was rainy, bachelor and associate students donned gowns and decorated graduation caps for the momentous occasion. Family, friends, faculty, and staff gathered at the University of Pennsylvania to celebrate the newest members of the working force. Several awards were granted, including one in recognition of those who very impressively maintained perfect attendance throughout their degree programs.
Students and their guests enjoyed two keynote speakers, one a fellow graduate of WHC. Following eloquent and engaging speeches from the valedictorian of each degree program, Dean Morrow announced the names of his “newest colleagues” as students crossed the stage with pride and received medals, degrees, and congratulations from President Liberatoscioli and Executive Vice President Karl Becker. The ceremony concluded and the grads tossed their beautifully decorated caps in celebration. Cheers to the newest graduates! The WHC community is so proud and cannot wait to see what you’ll do next!
