College Closed for Memorial Day

Wake Tech is closed on Monday in observance of Memorial Day. Prospective students can still apply online, and current students can register for classes. The college will reopen at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Flavors logoFlavors is a full-service restaurant operated by students in the Culinary Arts, Baking & Pastry Arts and Hospitality Management programs. Menus, prices and hours are dictated by students' instructional needs.

The restaurant is open to the college community and the public during the Fall and Spring semesters. It is a popular dining destination for locals, but it is also a state-of-the-art teaching facility, connecting classroom instruction with workplace experience. Hands-on learning is an integral part of Wake Tech's associate degree, diploma and certificate programs in the culinary and hospitality fields. Flavors allow students to sharpen skills and apply what they've learned.
