Johnson & Wales University Reviews
While I am not attending at present, I have seen promising things from this university. Their baking and pastry arts program, which I will major in, involves much hands-on learning with only a few extra classes like English or mathematics. I really like how JWU lets the student take classes related to his major the first year. And the instructors for the culinary program have past experience in 5-star places!
Johnson & Wales is a unique university that gives its students a myriad of sources to help them achieve whatever your heart desires. From sponsorships from local businesses and alumni that help students develop and launch new products and companies, to internal and external internships. It is clear that this is a university that looks out for its students and only wants the absolute best for them. Being a culinary school, the food here is excellent. There are so many meal plan options and a variety of food choices whether you are a vegetarian, gluten-free, kosher, and they cater to food allergies well. No complaints here!
Attending Johnson & Wales as a Culinary Arts student under their ACCESS Program was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The education was incomparable, the chefs truly cared about your success in the commercial kitchens of the real world. I learned more living there for 3 years then I have all the other places I've lived up to this point! I recommend the program and school to anyone with a true passion for culinary arts. You will get your money's worth and be glad you did it.
