I think it was a mixture of the fact that the professors were so great, and that I was so young and willing to learn. I definitely walked away with a lot of knowledge and felt extremely prepared for when I went elsewhere.

The professors at Bucks provided me with the right experience, and while I’m looking forward to my time at Princeton, I’ll never forget what Bucks has done for me.

Sharon Spatucci

At 25, I found myself suddenly divorced and having to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I thought, ‘I’m never going to be able to do this,’ but then I heard that Bucks had a culinary arts program.

Stefani Johnson

Bucks was a great starting point; convenient in terms of location and resources. The professors were very available and knew who I was. Classes were small to medium sized, so I was not just a face in the crowd.

Your primary job is to get the tools to get you through life, just know that it's a building block for your life.

Connie Furman

Once I started Bucks—once you get through your first semester, it empowers you for the next venture. What I was exposed to at Bucks slowly got me out of that shell that I was in.

Lynn Kelleher

it seemed easier going back when I was a little bit older, things just made sense. To me they weren’t just abstract theories, it was much more meaningful when I knew what I wanted to do. I benefited so much.

I never thought I'd enjoy forecasting needs. I like that about my job, it doesn't limit my job to just brewing and the skills I'm learning are transferable.
