5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Honestly Johnson and Wales university was not my first choice nor second it was my last resort but for financial reasons I wen to Johnson and Wales and I'm extremely happy I did. The atmosphere is perfect as well as the classes. The teachers are always open to help you as well as the free tutoring available. My favorite experience was orientation before my freshman year. That was my first time going to the school and after I left I was glad that I was going to attend Johnson and Wales.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Johnson and wales is a amazing place to attend they are very reliable and help you when its needed its a beautiful campus that i fell in-love with the teachers know what they are talking about and try to teach students in a way that they can retain the information given to them, being a culinary school we have one of the best programs in the country which is why i love this school also because its so diverse people from all over the world come to study here

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The student and staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is completely better than high school. It still amazes me how much spirit everyone has for their school and sometimes it feels like a big dream that I never want to wake from. I wouldn't want to choose a different school because this one feels just right.

Overall Experience: Johnson & Wales was the perfect choice for me. My first college experience was a dreadful one. I ended up getting bullied, becoming depressed and struggling to succeed. Johnson & Wales gave me a second chance to prove to myself that I am capable of everything I dreamed of as a child. I am now a 3rd year student working on a Bachelor's in Counseling Psychology. I am thankful to this university for taking me in despite my past college experience and providing me with inspirational professors who are more than happy to support and guide me. My GPA is rising every trimester and my goals seem reachable. I love my school and the new me!

Overall Experience: I would choose Johnson & Wales University again due to its wonderful online program. I currently reside in the United States Virgin Islands and I am currently able to attend classes and achieve my dreams of getting my degree due to the online program.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love the vibe at Johnson and Wales University. There is always something to do and things available to enjoy your time on campus. I love being new to Rhode Island and exploring new things on and off of campus. I wouldn't choose to go to another school because I really love what I have started at Johnson and Wales and wouldn't want it to end.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love my college so far!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Though I love all the opportunities and extra curricular activities that my school offers, I found myself disappointed with the character of many of my peers and their interests in mainly partying and drinking. I feel that overall the quality of the students at my school are sub-par, many of whom do not take school very seriously.

Off-Campus Housing: Have a lot of small places over priced,they don't offer a lot of things included.Not worth living off campus if you go to Johnson and Wales.

Off-Campus Dining: they have a lot of fast food restaurants around so if your not a picky or wicked healthy eater you should be fine.Also can only eat off campus if you have the money.

1 College Junior

Campus Food: the pizza in each location is literally soggy and full of oil.The options are limited and you have to keep going up to get the same food if you wanted more then one slice they wouldn't give it to you.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: They dont care if you cant afford the college,they just want their money.They make sure they get you stuck in a bill one way or another

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The rooms are very small to have a roommate.The worst thing is using commuter bathrooms because people leave messes everywhere.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: It gets old over time. Drinking is good. Weed is too common a thing here.

3 College Junior

Administration: They are okay. They are present when the RAoC needs them. Depending on who is on-call can decipher how leniant or strict of a night it may be.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Marketplace and Snowden trade off at which have better food, but there are several times a week where all the food is disgusting and we have to resort to something. Starbucks is consistent, but I don't want snacks for dinner. Starbucks is wicked expensive anyway. Breakfast is done right, most of the time. The idea to have the culinary kids make the food is creative and useful considering this is a culinary school, too, but hiring non-culinary students to work the dining halls ruins the food more often than not. Everyone is trained as though they are culinary majors which is NOT THE CASE.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I received what I thought was a significant amount of financial aid, but in reality, it wasn't a lot. My mother and I had to pay a few visit to Student Financial Services because the whole process is so confusing, and we had special technoicalities that made the process 10X more challenging. This school is more expensive than it has to be, to be honest, especially when taking into account the housing.

Campus Housing: I thoroughly enjoyed living in Xavier Hall. It is one of the worst quality dorm given how old it is compared to the newer dorms, but it served as one of the more affordable housing options. The residents were extremely friendly. Because we housed a significantly smaller number of residents, it felt more like a community. I knew every resident in my hall and was friendly with mostly all of them. I could not have selected a better hall for my freshman year. It swayed my college experience to be better than it could have ever been. The interior design is hideous, and the fact that there is no AC is a bummer, but the outside looks dope.
