After Johnson & Wales University
- Very Good898
As a freshman at Johnson and Wales University I have to say that I am so glad this is where I chose to go. From the faculty, administration and friends I have met, this school has enabled me to start on the right path. Being in downtown Providence, RI JWU is in the center of everything, also allowing for many job opportunities outside of school. The clubs and extra curricular activities are abundant also. JWU is a great University and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Being so far way has been tough. I am from California and I am currently attending school in Rhode Island. Johnson and Wales University has been great so far! I am really enjoying the food, friends, and my classes. So far my favorite class is Communication Skills. My Professor , who teaches Communication Skills, is vey outstanding. Professor Gaines interacts and shows exactly what we will accomplish after taking this course. My school is unique due to the fact we do not have school on Fridays and sometimes we have classes outside from the classroom. This gives us the opportunity to have class in a dining to get one on one attention with the Professor.

My school is unique because professors and chef engage with you outside of class time when not on campus.
