In addition to Framingham State University, Jimmy is enrolled in Westborough High School’s post-graduate program. Jimmy’s first semester on campus has been filled with many new activities; his current (and favorite!) course so far is FDSC131: Principles of Food Science. Jimmy cites his proudest achievement as “taking [his] first college exam and getting an A on my food blog!”
When he’s not busy with class, Jimmy can be found working with Sodexo as part of their dining services staff. His favorite on-campus activity is going to the Game Room. Jimmy’s advice for new MAICEI students is, “pay attention in class.” There are so many options for Jimmy after program completion; right now though, his goal is to continue working at his local Roche Brothers market.
