So, last year was my freshman year of college and this year is about to be my sophomore year. I loved the school but sometimes my food would be great and sometimes it would be bad. But the professors and chefs are awesome! I love the Tobacco free Campus. The tuition was very expensive. Last year I had to take out a student loan for a large amount of money. But the school looks great on an resume and it looks great in general. Great naked school! That's why I thought that this school was very good.

Johnson & Wales University is a great school to attend especially as a culinary arts major. The chefs, teachers and the staff as a whole is more than willing to help you with not only what you are learning but even with getting jobs. Everyone is super friendly and I learn new content everyday that will help me with my career for the rest of my life. If I was to change something, I would change the cafe to a student ran kitchen for better tasting and healthier choices.
Johnson & Wales is a very good school. The small environment really gives the one-on-one experience that enhances the growth of students. The staff noticeably cares about your education and safety. I recommend at least visiting this school at least once before ruling it out. Best choice I have made!
