Q&A with Robin

At JWU, education is not confined to the four walls of the classroom. You’re not going to spend four years with your nose buried in a book, learning theories you may never get a chance to apply — you’re going to get out there and apply them, be it through internships, group projects, leadership opportunities, competitions and more.

What Advice Do You Have For Incoming Freshmen?

Attitude is everything. If you enter the classroom with a good attitude, anything is possible.

What College Do You Teach In?

College of Food Innovation & Technology
