Wouldn't you like to know?

After I was accepted at Johnson and Wales Denver I started trying to find as much information about the school that IS NOT on the website and brochures. What there is to do on campus. What the student population is like. What do most people do for fun, etc. I asked around and talked to as many people as I could. Finding them on websites such as Facebook or Myspace and asking away, becoming friends.

When I finally did come out to Denver that fall I really felt prepared. I wasn’t someone who was walking on campus completely clueless and scared of what life was going to be like. Don’t get me wrong, it was still difficult. Having to move away from home for the first time, living with someone I didn’t really even know. But, I did feel prepared for what was ahead.

A Change In Roles
Now that I will be a sophomore in the upcoming year, the tables have turned. This summer I have been contacted my several students asking me the same questions I did. Its funny how just a short amount of time at college makes you some sort of authority on life on campus.I enjoy the role reversal of going from the “student” to the “teacher”.

My Question to You
So my question is; What would you like to know?Even if you are not going to Johnson and Wales.Are there any questions that I could answer for you, or explain an experience I have had at school?Please let me know.The Dish was created for us to inform you.To help you become more familiar with what to expect at school.What do you want to hear about?
