SaEryon - 11/07/2020

I really like the school and all the people I have met so far. I feel like the rooms could be better and we should have more access to buy things in our rooms to cook our own meals in our own space. I also feel as if we need more protection with the on-campus housing considering there are homeless people walking through the campus chasing students. Other than that, the school is a very great school, known for majorly culinary and the school is very recommended.

It is a place that people from all over and come to learn. The campus from what I have seen is very open and dependable. You are able to explore around campus safely without many worries. The teachers really try and work with you if you are struggling, and make sure you are taken care of. The are many events on campus and off to keep you happy, and healthy. Of course, JWU won't replace home, but it will try!

Johnson & Wales university is a beautiful campus. Everyone is so friendly and ready to help when needed. The pet friendly community is my favorite part of the university and a huge reason i want to go there in the first place since i can't bear to leave my dog beside. The degree i want to purse is available to me and is an important aspect of my college choosing.

Rebecca

This campus is great. The teachers are amazing and courses are challenging enough to keep you on your feet, but not too challenging where you want to cry with all the work you have. The chefs are fantastic and know the food service industry very well. They never stop encouraging you to do better and really perfect your skills. Everyone wants you to succeed. There is always something happening on campus. There are some fraternities and sororities, but Greek Life doesn't dominate campus. The campus cafeteria is not the best, but there are TONS of shops and restaurants around that fit every budget. Financial aid is given to almost every student. JWU's mission is to provide financial support for everyone to keep tuition affordable for everyone. The education is worth the money.
