First Class FAQs

What do I need to bring with me for “First Class?”

Just yourself and your passion and eagerness to enjoy the day! We will supply you with a copy of your schedule and anything else you might need.

What should I wear to “First Class?” 

We ask that students wear business casual clothing. A suit is not necessary, but we encourage students to look professional. Not sure what that means? Use these guidelines:

  • Collared shirt or a nice blouse
  • Slacks or a dress skirt
  • Dress shoes
  • No T-shirts, jeans, sneakers, or flip-flops/sandals

If you’re still not sure about your outfit, you can always ask a staff member for advice.

I still have questions about my class schedule, books, uniforms, etc. Who can help answer these questions?

Your class schedule will be sent to you in early August. Rest assured, our “First Class” orientation will cover everything! During the course of orientation, you will be shown your classrooms and kitchens, review your class schedule, and meet the faculty, staff and team members vital to your success at Walnut Hill College!
