From Walnut Hill College

Founded in 1974 as The Restaurant School, Walnut Hill College is one of Philadelphia’s first colleges to focus on excellence in hospitality education. We prepare our students for the real world by combining classroom teaching with hands-on training in our award-winning restaurants, which are open to the public. Of course, the training we offer doesn’t just happen on campus. Our students live and learn in the heart of University City, Philadelphia, home to one of the largest student populations in America. With a bustling environment of restaurants and hotels right in our backyard, our students have incredible access to top-notch internships and jobs. And well beyond Philadelphia, our students go on tuition-paid travel adventures around the world! Trips to France, England, Florida, and the Bahamas are the highlight of our programs. By studying the industry both locally and globally, students from Walnut Hill College can expand their knowledge and thrive wherever their careers take them.

    The Restaurant School is really great, I love it there! They have great Chefs, professors, and awesome people that work there; including the student staff! I love TRS because they really care about you, they know who you are, and they are always there to help. The only down side to TRS is there is limited parking and there aren't that many dorms so you have to get there fast. Other the that we have a lot of good people at The Restaurant School.

    I love the restaurant school there can be ups and downs but that’s any college. it’s definitely a real world kind of experience since students run the restaurants but the chefs are always there to help. When a mistake is made the chefs don’t get mad they just say do better. Definitely a great school.
    I was invited to an open house in December at the school. I must say, I was pleased. It was a home-like atmosphere, people were friendly, staff were very knowledgable. I even had the chance to sit in on a short class with a pastry chef.
