Tour the kitchens, sample tasty treats and talk to Admissions counselors
Holyoke Community College will hold an open house Thursday, April 26, at the HCC MGM Culinary Arts Institute for anyone interested in taking classes there as well as members of the general public who just want to tour the facility and sample fresh, tasty treats prepared by students and staff in the facility's kitchens.
The tasting tour and open house, which run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 164 Race St., coincide with Holyoke Innovation Week, a week-long series of community events being held in the city's Innovation District.
During the open house, HCC Admissions counselors will take on-the-spot applications and talk with students about programs and the enrollment process, including applying for financial aid and preparing for the college placement test.
Guests will be able to tour the 20,000-square-foot facility, view cooking demonstrations, sample delicious appetizers, meet faculty chefs and learn about HCC's certificate and associate degree programs in Culinary Arts, as well as the college's noncredit culinary workforce training programs.
