4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is amazing, but getting over the hurdle of finances is my biggest issue. I am only attending two years because now I am about $50,000 in debt.

Student Body: The student body is pretty diverse. One helpful thing I noticed: one dorm was majority extroverts, the other majority introverts.

Online Courses: My online course was actually a hybrid, so I was in class once a week, where all quizzes and tests were taken. The website was a tad confusing at times, but it was only for homework and the textbook.

Academic Experience: Course registration was the easiest thing, as long as you do not mind waking up at 6 am on your specified date. It is all online, allowing you perfect planning. About to start my sophomore year and I haven't yet needed help scheduling. The professors are amazing and very knowledgeable. The chefs have real, lifetime experience that they share with you at every chance.

Academic Experience: I was in the kitchen cooking and baking on my first day. There is a lot of material, but you're in class for 6 hours so it all is presented well. The labs are loaded with great tools.

Tuition & Financial Aid: This school is $40,000 a year. It is a steep price, but my baking labs have been more than I thought they would be. Financial services work with students to help 96% with financial aid. Helpfully, they automatically give you many JWU scholarships you qualify for. If it weren't so expensive, JWU would be getting 5 stars.

Campus Resources: The campus is beautifully urban, but somehow retains a small feel. The student center, library, academic center, and dorms have free printing. Campus activities is great at notifying students of events with planners in every elevator and bathroom.

Academic Flexibility: The GPS (Grad Planning System) made choosing classes as easy as clicking a button. Your requirements are laid out perfectly in the suggested order.

Overall Experience: The chefs and professors are very good. They are all willing to help both inside and out of class, whether it is about course material or other interests. The class sizes are amazing, with many smaller than at my high school. My lab class started at 22, which was considered very large. As I will only be taking the classes required for my associates degree, there are not many diverse academic classes.

Overall Experience: Although I'm only now about to start my internship year, information has been available to me during the entire application, acceptance, and enrollment process. The internship/job finder website is extremely helpful, allowing you to be very specific with your desires. I have heard that the alumni network always has jobs waiting for graduating students.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Since Johnson & Wales is a private university they are able to give more money. Most of my financial aid covered my tuition, however is doesn't cover my room and boarding. Tips for getting financial aid is apply as early as possible to get the most amount possible.

Online Courses: I have not taken any online classes, only hybrid classes which are part online and part class.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The teachers are extremely flexibly in the lab class, they don't hassle or get frustrated at changes in the class that day. Transferring credits worked quick and easy, my one class credit actually covered two classes, one which was a degree requirement.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school it's self is fantastic, the classes and teachers make you work hard for the grade you achieve. However, the food in the cafe is edible but doesn't exactly have any taste and is mostly fried unhealthy food that makes my stomach upset. The dorms aren't bad, only two person per room and two rooms per dorm room so its not too small.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is so expensive. My family has given up a lot for me to stay in school. I try to get more money but it's very difficult.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: When I have a question about something on campus, the faculty and staff always answer my questions in a polite and welcoming way.
