I went through the Culinary Arts Program and loved every bit of it! Chef Tony Parker is a very valuable person to get to know and have on your side. He has so many connections around the country which could get you a great job opportunity. The lunches for the whole school are made by the culinary program and there's also a fine dining room which has a new menu every 2 weeks. Talk to Chef Parker and get to know when the capstones are, the capstones are the culinary graduates doing their final project (so they're usually pretty yummy!) and it's usually only around $15 for a five course meal!

Renton Technical College has a variety of two-year programs and a very diverse population of students. Instructors are very experienced and educated in their field and offer full support and encouragement. The campus is safe, I have been attending Renton Technical College for two years and have never experienced an unsafe situation. Drills are performed regularly to ensure that students and staff know what to do in the event of a real situation. The campus was recently renovated and look nice and neat, but if you arrive around 10 AM in the morning, it is difficult to find a parking space. The food in the cafeteria is prepared by the culinary students, it’s inexpensive and tastes great!
Renton Technical College is great for it's small campus and class sizes. The staff make it easy to receive all the help you may need to thrive in whatever your plans may be. There are more than enough resources for everyone- the library is never packed, they offer space like the Learning Resource Center, Scholarship and other funding staff, peer-to-peer help, advisers and more. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable.

What I enjoy the most is that each program is designed for you to learn about the field of study. There is very little run around in their courses. What you enroll in is what you will focus on and there is space for you to do more learning in out-of-class clubs. The two things that I would change is the parking; the parking lot is usually full and street parking is hard to come by at certain hours of the morning.

Overall, Renton Technical is great for anyone who has an interest in any of the programs offered and for those who may not be sure.
