JWU Heads to the NY Produce Show

Each year, College of Hospitality Management Associate Professor Douglas Stuchel takes his students to the annual NY Produce Show. This year, 4 Food Service Management students — Daniel Cartagena, Janghoon Ji, Yinyan Shao and Madeline Balassie — attended the show, which is an annual trade convention celebrating fresh produce, and also took part in the team challenge. Madeline wrote about her amazing experience at the show:

Chef’s Tables: Southern Sea


Chef’s Tables at JWU are a little like “Restaurant Wars” on “Top Chef”: a team of students design and execute their own restaurant concept, starting with a unified theme. The chefs are then paired with student designers from Deana Marzocchi’s Design Solutions class, who help them flesh out a visual identity for their concept, including a logo, menu designs and table settings.

Tasty Branding: JWU Design Students Bring Food Companies to Life

Food is a visual medium — so naturally, designing food packaging brings out the playful side of JWU Providence’s Graphic Design & Digital Media students. Professor Karyn Jimenez-Elliott’s Advanced Print class recently had the task of conceptualizing and designing an identity system for a hypothetical beverage company.
