For any student that is interested in attending Johnson and Wales University, here is some personal advice from a current student here! 1. Financial services from the Providence campus sucks. If you email someone, you have to email 4-5 times, sometimes I had to even email the PRESIDENT of the campus to get information. 2. Never go to the Miami... More

The J & W Culinary Museum is a fascinating collection of information, facts, traditions, photographs and artifacts that document our way of eating. Don't miss it!

Being a Rhode Islander, I can say how proud I am to have an incredible University that has a reknown Culinary Arts and Hotel Management program. It's in the heart of downtown Providence, walking distance to RI School of Design and Brown University. Providence is a beautiful city, filled with culture and lots to do. Going to J & W... More

I did my undergrad at this university and loved that I am smack in the middle of everything I need. The atmosphere is wonderful.

Very informative orientation. From the students to the Deans everyone was so helpful. I felt very reassured about my child going there after hearing all them.

I like visiting college campuses, but this is the first one that was primarily a culinary institute. I went to the athletic area first, and it has a really cool view of a bay.

This museum was one of the most fun museums that I have ever had the pleasure of walking though. It took you through the diner years and beyond. There were some items in there that my grandmother used in her home. Quirky, upbeat and fun with every corner that you turn.

I must say that there were thousands of people there. So happy no one got hurt. We had Grandma there with her walker and she managed her way through the crowd but it would have been nice to have a reserved area for invalids to go in first.and why would the Dunken Center lock everyone out until the entire block...

I was a student here, just around the time that it went from being a College to a University. During that same time they seemingly bought up half of downtown to expand their campus and it is simply amazing. Proud to be an alum - and to see how Providence looks these days.
