The visit I had to Johnson and Wales Denver just a couple days ago was phenomenal. I am a potential recruit for their mens soccer program. I met the coach, Andy Kohel, and was taken on a campus tour with a free lunch included at the student cafeteria. The food was actually good, with great chefs on staff. The tour was led by a student on the Lacrosse team. He was very nice and friendly, with great knowledge on pretty much everything there is to know on campus. The facilities were clean and secure. It'd be really great if I could attend the Denver campus of Johnson and Wales.

I really like the community feel of JWU, it's not a huge campus with thousands of people, it's more of a community. The student board hosts tons of campus events to get involved in. The class sizes are small so the professors know who you are and work with you on individualized learning. The athletics are great, especially the soccer program!
The unique aspects of my program include everything possible there is to learn about cooking, preparing foods, quality control, purchasing, to bartending, hospitality and catering. These and more are the reason that I chose Johnson and Wales. The workload is quite arduous but then what college education is easy, There are health and safety certification classes along with culinary classes. The curriculum is outstanding as far as learning at a great pace as well as learning from other students and the professors. The facilities are upscale, current with the times and very accommodating. Internships and job opportunities are par excellence and over the top. The chief Intern counselor and Chief Director, AV, is highly knowledgeable about her department and is well suited to help steer future students in the correct direction.
