Scottsdale, AZ, December 16, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Scottsdale Culinary Institute (SCI) announced today that faculty, students, foodies, area visitors and those interested in learning more about the school can now connect online through its newly-launched MySpace social networking Web page.

Offering an interactive, user-submitted network of friends, personal profiles, blogs, groups, photos, music and videos, MySpace has become one of the most popular websites in the world. With over 200 million users, including rock bands, politicians and even the Pope, MySpace has become a powerful forum for self-expression and networking for individuals and groups.

“Most of our students are very tech-savvy. When they are not in the kitchen, many of them spend a great deal of time on the Web,” said Jon-Paul Hutchins, executive chef of the Scottsdale Culinary Institute. “Our MySpace page allows students, chef instructors and alumni to connect and anyone interested in learning more about a modern day Le Cordon Bleu affiliated culinary school can really get a feel for our collective personality.”

The school’s MySpace page, http://myspace.com/scottsdaleculinarychefs includes a bi-weekly blog penned primarily by Hutchins with contributions from students and other faculty, a slideshow photo gallery of pictures taken on campus and around the Scottsdale area, information about student clubs, campus events and volunteer opportunities.
