An upgraded and informative new entrance “hall of fame” welcomes students and visitors, introducing the history and worldwide accomplishments of the school and its alumni through a variety of displays. The dining room serves as a multi-functional space that can also be set up for meetings and instruction. The lab kitchens serve as interactive space to showcase new vendor equipment and serve as a teaching area with individual student instructional modules. The demonstration kitchen features tiered seating for 60 with state-of-the-art food preparation and audio visual equipment.
