Pennsylvania Culinary Institute is a school made for culinary, pastry, hotel, and restaurant management students. This school is a two-year school meaning when you graduate you graduate with an Associates degree. I’ll like to tell you a little bit about the school, buses, dorms, and things to do while you are going to school.
The school is located in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. The best part about the program is all your books are included. They have three different locations throughout the city. One location is for culinary students, the next location is for pastry students, and finally they have a location for the hotel restaurant management students. The building of the hotel and restaurant management students are in is an office building which also is the schools area where the financial office is, Dean’s offices, cafeteria, and all basic courses classes are held. I have learned very much from the school and the knowledge I have taken from the there has excelled my career.
For those of you thinking of living in the dorms the bus pass will be one of the most effective ways of transporting yourself around the city. When I went there I had the zone to bus pass. The bus passes come in three zones but the zone to bus pass will get you everywhere you need to go. Places you might enjoy taking the bus to our South Hills Village, Greentree, or you are right across the bridge to the south side.
As with every four year college, students will tell you some of the most memorable times where in the dorms. While nothing has changed from that in a two-year school, some of the most memorable times I have had have been in the dorms while in college. I would highly suggest to anyone under the age of 21 to live in the dorms. Dorm life teaches you how to be in your own, how to live with others, and allows you to be more free with out having to act completely grown up yet.
Things to do
There are so many things to do in Pittsburgh I can’t even begin to list all of them. Some of the most memorable things I have done though have been things such as going to a Pittsburgh Pirates game, going to Station Square and watching a free concert, or even just walking around downtown. There’s nothing better than living downtown. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
When you sign up for your schooling you may select a meal plan. This meal plan allows you to get one two or three meals for the entire time that you’re going to school. Being that this is a culinary school of meals are generally pretty good as they are cooked by the students. In get your food to go and eat it there. Either way you won’t be disappointed.
I hope this article helps people who are looking into or are going to Pennsylvania culinary Institute better understand everything that there is about the school. Some of my most memorable times were in college, and I hope that everyone out there can say the same thing.
