Johnson & Wales University - Denver Reviews
The Denver Campus is very beautiful and looks very prestige and traditional.The class sizes are typically pretty small, but they are very diverse, and for the most part the professors are pretty good at what they do. The food on campus is definitely not the the best tasting and is definitely not the healthiest either. The freshman facilities are not the best, there is no air conditioning in the dorms, the heaters often do not come on when it is freezing, but turn on when its reasonably warm, and my suite mates and I have had to take cold showers basically everyday for the last 6 months. There are programs to get involved with on campus but not a lot, and with the majority of the clubs you have to be a part of a specific major or select group in order to get in. Over all I feel like Johnson and Wales is very average in a lot of ways, and is not worth the $45,000 dollar investment that most of us can not afford.
I love how beautiful the campus is. It truly is one of the best looking JWU campuses. The campus is a good size, and rooms are never too hard to find. The professors are all really kind and understanding, there seems to be mutual respect on all sides. I wish there was better food, especially considering it's a culinary school. I would also like more diverse class options. Often when I choose my courses I feel really limited with not much freedom really excel in my major.
I loved the mini culture I was able to obtain at JWU! Minus the fact that it is a smaller campus so the social aspect lacks a little bit there is always something going on within the student life. The academia always is watching out for the success of the students and I found myself excelling as a student there.
