I love everything about it

Everyone is very close and accepting. Chefs take the time to get to know you on a personal level and the student body is very diverse which makes classes very fun.
College Senior 2012-11-28T22:02:12Z

Career Services is great, they help us find jobs and externship opportunities along with helping us set up great resumes and portolios. We have an open student lounge, and a student study room as well.

Curriculum is very helpful, we get to learn why things are added to certain dishes when they are are why some things should be avoided. We also learn the science behind ingredients for example who you would use baking soda rather than baking powder. Workload is easy to handle. We have daily cooking and written tests along the way and also projects throughout. Job opportunities are great. Our career serives helps you find jobs in your area and have alot of great connections.

Career Resources Are Excellent! The career services make sure that everyone who graduates gets placed in a job to their liking. I have full confidence that once I graduate, I will get a job that I will love!

Resources Are Good – The best resource that Le Cordon Bleu has is its library. It has a cybrary, which I can access from anywhere, and a traditional library for research. The campus is modern, clean and welcoming.
College Senior 2012-08-14T16:03:04Z
The Campus resources are excellent. I can use the computer lab or my own laptop due to the wireless connectivity. The computers are top-of-the-line!

Thoroughness of the Curriculum – For those looking to get a degree in culinary or pastry arts, Le Cordon Bleu is the best school to go to. They have a comprehensive curriculum, that gives the students tools to use in their career. They also have a wonderful externship program, allowing the student to practice what they have learned in a busy, professional, high-class kitchen.

It's Been Great So Far! My experience with Le Cordon has been great! My adviser has been very helpful and provided everything I've needed so far. Touring the campus, I was also impressed with the professionalism that everyone had but there was also a loose feeling too. I could tell they enjoy working there. Financial Aid has also been very helpful through that process.

Seem Great – I have not graduated yet but I am looking forward to the options that Le Cordon will provide. They seem very professional and they have a good reputation, so I'm hoping that will help me in my career.

After Graduation – Career services at Le Cordon Bleu schools is for your lifetime. Graduation doesn't mean that you're gone from school, but rather a different "campus" better known as the real world. As a graduate here, I will be part of the best culinary professionals in the world, and through my classmates and career services I'll have at my hands connections to employment and career advancement.

Who Doesn't Love Food – The campus here is small enough where I can have individual help from the instructors. A lot of people think that cooking is easy, but here I found that to make good food better takes skill, patience, and a lot of practice. The chef instructors practically drop everything to answer questions, help learn techniques, and have the patience of saints when it comes to students making mistakes. Having been in a large part of this country, I find the campus here "homey," close knit, and supportive not only for the academics, but for my future goals and dreams. I know once I graduate I'll have friends in staff and student alike that will support me and cheer me on in whichever direction my life takes me. And in my own opinion, I don't think I'd find that anywhere else.

Half and Half – About haldf the students are full time working adults with or without kids, and the other half is fresh out of high school and are very immature.
Recent Alumnus 2011-06-28T22:51:41Z
Not Many Resources – There is a small library with not a lot of books, and a student lounge with vending machines tha have expired food in them. There's a decent amount of clubs to join, and the occasional campus activity.
Recent Alumnus 2011-06-28T22:48:57Z
Pastry and Baking – You learn pretty much everything you need to know, some things are focused on too much others not enough. There is a required 3 month internship, the workload isn't too hard depending on your professor or chef. Class schedule is done for you.
Recent Alumnus 2011-05-09T13:59:52Z
HARD TO GET STARTED – The alumni office publishes a list of jobs available, but most of those are also found on Craigslist. The rest require multiple years of experience that the grad would not have yet. Right now job prospects are bleak, especially for bakers. Ratio of about 100 cooks to one or two bakers. Expect little money, few hours, poor benefits, no insurance, lots of competition.
Recent Alumnus 2011-05-09T13:54:02Z
NO FLEXIBILITY – Half of the program is a series of culinary classes, taken in a specific order. The other half is academic credits. Each 6 week period, you get one of each, in 4 hour long classes. If you miss more than 6 days in a period, you have to repeat the class. After the classroom classes, you have to go out and find yourself an externship. No externship, no graduate.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
