Review Johnson & Wales University
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!
Being so far way has been tough. I am from California and I am currently attending school in Rhode Island. Johnson and Wales University has been great so far! I am really enjoying the food, friends, and my classes. So far my favorite class is Communication Skills. My Professor , who teaches Communication Skills, is vey outstanding. Professor Gaines interacts and shows exactly what we will accomplish after taking this course. My school is unique due to the fact we do not have school on Fridays and sometimes we have classes outside from the classroom. This gives us the opportunity to have class in a dining to get one on one attention with the Professor.
I enrolled into JWU with early enrollment and am so thankful I could do so. The professors are so helpful and always offer the best they can. All of the ones I’ve had so far are full of experience and are delighted to share their knowledge with you. I’ve been so privileged to study under them and hope to continue this path. So far I've had various classes that have been extremely challenging but also rewarding. I am currently studying Advertising and hope to continue this in the future for my career. Through the guidance of my mentors I plan on working at an advertising agency someday to become a successful copywriter. I recommend anyone who is thinking about applying here to go for it. Johnson & Wales has opened so many doors for me and can for you too!
