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.
Review Johnson & Wales University - Charlotte
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!
Everyday you are learning new techniques of culinary cuisine. No matter what lab, instructor, or chef, every moment is worth being in class on time for. This is the only career where you can eat food for a grade! Cooking is not just a way to satisfy hunger, it is also a way to reach out to people's hearts. I have found that this school has taught me exactly how to do that.
