The Imagine America Foundation recently got a whiff of something new over at the Lincoln Technical Institute campus in Columbia, MD. We decided to pay a visit to check it out, and what we found was quite exciting. Lincoln Technical Institute has opened a brand-new Culinary Arts wing. Three new modern industrial kitchens – two for cooking and one for baking – have been added to the 95,000 sq. ft. facility. The wing also has an in-house diner/café where training in the use of the latest restaurant, point-of-sale, wireless technology is offered to hospitality management students.
As Sara Vander Weide looked ahead toward the second half of her senior year of high school at Central Valley Christian in Visalia, Calif., she decided that it was time to get serious about what she was going to do after graduation. Sara had a hunch that she wanted to study something related to psychology or healthcare, but the more she looked at traditional universities in her area, such as Fresno State and Fresno Pacific, the more daunting it seemed to be in school for four more years.
Choosing a college to attend can be difficult. What would help with that decision? Would getting opinions from students already attending that college help? On a recent trip to ECPI College of Technology in Virginia Beach, VA, we decided to do just that. By speaking with their students, president and staff, we got an inside look on how the college operates.
