Academics: Professors don't care. No challenges. All open note tests. It's a joke.

5 College Freshman

Academics: JWU is known for its culinary program, and there are so many opportunities for networking with chefs and business owners. There's not too much homework but I'm an honors student so I have a lot more homework and projects. There are no honors labs but you need to do an h-option assignment to get an honors credit. It's worth it though, because you learn more from it than your peers do from just class.
