3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's pretty good. There's a ramen place literally 2 blocks away from the downcity campus. Its 9 bucks for a huge bowl of fresh ramen. It's pretty good. Most places around downtown is pretty cheap since it is a college town. You have PC, URI, RISD, and Brown around you so its cheap to eat.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Its Okay. Not that great

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Nurse on harborside is a bitch. All she wants to do is send people to urgent care so she doesn't have to deal with them.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Nobody cares about the teams here. Usually only soccer but thats because the guys are all hot.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: They seem pretty chill. Some sororities seem stuck up. But it could just be because they don't smile. Thinking of rushing in the fall for one of the newest sororities coming to campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not Sure cause I lived on campus.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: In the beginning of the year. The frats/sororities do pick ups to their parties. Its to get the freshman to join and everything. They're pretty nice so don't be afraid to venture out and talk to the girls/guys.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Safety and security isn't the best. Their harborside office is always closed it seems like.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Its okay. They give you scholorships for using their textbook during high school. Ans SKIlls USA: JOIN IT

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Market Place is always good, but I think they're changing it to like a convenience store. Another way for them to get our money I guess. But I've heard some things about chipoltle coming to campus. I'm not if its true or not, but hopefully it does. Walking to brown is alot

1 College Sophomore

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is tolerable. Not too many options.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The party scene at Johnson & Wales is HORRIBLE. If you are looking to go to a party school, look elsewhere. Seriously.

Campus Housing: The housing at Johnson & Wales is very poor. The dorms are tiny.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life offers so much that most non-greek life kids will never see. It offers amazing friendships and always keeps one busy. Greek life has personally become a big part of my life at Johnson & Wales, with never ending community service, people don't realize it is not all about parties for people in Greek life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports is not a big thing here, the biggest sports are soccer and lacrosse. Not a school that will go to sport events or go crazy over sports.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: If one chooses to live off campus, they have unlimited options and the landlord will help. Freedom is a plus, only annoying because the school does not help with transportation and RIPTA is not free anymore.

Off-Campus Dining: There are unlimited options, anything a student wants to eat is walking distance away.

4 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Administration: School policy is fair to students
