1 College Freshman

Academics: Only care about culinary students.

Campus Housing: My roommate bullied me all year and both of my first tri roommates transferred because they hated it so much. You were not allowed to switch or change rooms the RA's do nothing but smoke pot and party and not care the most they'll do for you is a roommate agreement which does nothing. When I came home after thanksgiving break I had a Chinese foreign student in my bed. I was never warned of getting a new roommate and no one had explained to her that she took over my bed and area. It was such a terrible school and such a waste of money. It is so hot it's like a sauna I had the windows wide open in mid January because it is so hot. It is so dirty as well. Showers are terrible and leak all over the floor. Only one towel rack. Everyone slams doors. So loud. There's always floods and the first night of college we were kicked out of our dorms and had to stay on the campus from 3 to 6am and not allowed back in and had to go to class in our pajamas due to a sidewalk blowing up.

Drug Safety: Most of the bars and clubs offer underage drinking. The cops will raid the bar/club but won't make any arrests or changes. The safety guards are usually never around and when they are they have been seen smoking pot out in the open with the students right outside of mcnulty. I have seen many females alone and crying half naked. A few have been in hysterics crying because they had a bad trip. There have been many fights because of drug deals gone wrong. It is a very nasty scene here at Johnson and Wales Providence campus. Very bad and dangerous scene to be apart of.

1 College Freshman

Facilities: food is horrible especially for a culinary school. I got a moldy burger twice. snowden is much like a cliquey high school cafeteria. people are never nice or friendly.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Doesn't provide nearly anything unless you're a culinary major.
