The Freshman Class is a cooking related television series that challenges the typical cooking shows in this day and age. Instead of focusing only on their culinary capabilities and talents, The Freshman Class takes you into the lives of a few select students in their studies and real life situations. This documentary series began in 2013, and instead of implying that an education in the culinary arts is simple and glamorous, the show focuses on the very true-to-life challenges and hardships the students face. The series chose a group of well rounded students who all have different view points to obtain the main goal, and as the series progresses the real-life twists in character development become more predominant. The Freshman Class gives a first hand example of the financial struggles of culinary students and how difficult it truly is to make it through culinary school and successfully into the industry.
