Living the Life: Reflections of a JWU Field Hockey Team Member

I have been on the Johnson & Wales Field Hockey team since my freshman year and am very sad it's my last season because I am a senior. I am a Fashion Merchandising & Retail major and have had my own fashion blog/Instagram since high school. I've slowly started working with brands, and I hope to continue to grow my blog.

Why I Made the Leap from Baking & Pastry to Food Service Management

Hello everyone! My name is Calla and I’m a baking & pastry/food service management (FSM) major in my junior year here at JWU’s Providence Campus.

I love baking. I’ve done it since I was young and I would bake with my grandma. She fostered this love for baking with me and ever since then I’ve wanted to be a baker, she told me about JWU when I was 7 and now here I am.

I had very little prior experience in the food service industry and was anxious and excited to see how I would adapt to labs.

These challenges, however, eventually led to something amazing! My journey to starting the Early Enrollment Program (EEP) at JWU’s College of Culinary Arts exemplifies this perfectly.
