What Students are Saying

As a food services operations specialist with Fairfax County Public Schools, I believe that the knowledge I gained from many of the program’s classes will be very beneficial moving forward in my career. Leaning how to properly research, read, and understand scientific articles and studies will benefit me greatly, as will the ability to write thoughtful and educated reviews of such articles. Being able to go in to a multitude of different communities and work with them to further their knowledge of nutrition is one of the best things I got out of the program. I also believe that the classes that were science-heavy forced me somewhat out of my comfort area and taught me so much when it came to the functions of nutrition and the human body.
