Franklin College freshman Becca McKinley worried about cooking for herself. So, when she saw PIVOT offered sessions called 1001 Ways to Cook Ramen, the English/creative writing major aspired to leave her baking blunders behind.
Franklin offers hands-on PIVOT workshops to students between Winter Term and Spring Term. For a few days, students have the opportunity to master almost any new skill they want.

Interested in not eating the same chicken ramen for four years straight? 1001 Ways to Cook Ramen helped Becca cook with the best of them.
“PIVOT was an experience where I did a lot of hands-on learning, and I thought it was a great way to teach us students some valuable life skills in a fun environment. The course so much fun, and we learned how to make a lot of good food on a budget.” – McKinley
The class taught students more than how to revolutionize ramen recipes. 1001 Ways to Cook Ramen also showcased how you can maintain a meager college-student budget and still make delicious meals.
“The course emphasized that you can cook good food even if you don’t have a lot of money, which I thought was a great lesson to take away as a college student.” – McKinley
Franklin College knows 90 percent of the college experience happens outside the classroom. We’ve cultivated a curriculum that won’t just teach you how to write a history paper. It will prepare you to survive all facets of life – including how to make an amazing cup of microwave ramen.
