Avoiding dining hall crowds and finding a place to cook on campus can be a challenge. Instead, go to The Kitchen by OCL on the first floor of Festival, across from OCL and next to the Nap Nook. Inside The Kitchen by OCL, there is a microwave for cooking and a refrigerator for keeping food fresh. Every Monday from 3-4 pm, Off-Campus Life staff hold classes which teach students easy and helpful cooking and life skills as a part of Adulting with Milk and Cookies. At the end of each cooking class, recipe cards are given out to students.
Kayla Jillson has been a staff member at OCL for three years and is leading classes in the Kitchen by OCL. She said, “We do a lot of workshops, like Leasing 101 and How to Budget, and we figured there’s a lot of other smaller topics that are very prevalent to knowing how to adult properly.”
Last Monday, students learned how to make sticky buns in a microwave, and this Monday, February 24th is National Skip the Straw Day where Kayla will be teaching students how to live a greener college lifestyle. Other topics throughout the semester include Understanding Taxes, How to Build a Resume, Auto Care Basics, and much more. Now go Dukes; Come ye, come all and cook your food in The Kitchen by OCL, learn fun recipes, and discover ways to care for yourself.
