This is an expensive school that doesn't offerAverageOther
This is an expensive school that doesn't offer much. Yes, obtaining a position after graduating depends a lot on your effort but is it really worth shelling 80k to get a job that pays $10-12 an hour? i think not. only go into the food service industry field if you are EXTREMELY passionate and can't imagine yourself doing anything else. you really don't need SCHOOL to become a cook. go to your local community college or just work your way up. (at least you'll save enough money to go back to school in case culinary schools doesn't work out!!!) cooking is not a good job at all. your hours are ridiculous and you get no respect. do yourself a favor and don't go to culinary school!!!!

I love it here! I think like everyQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I love it here! I think like every college, you're going to find those arrogant non approachable people, and then you'll also find the friendly ones! I've met so many amazing people here. There are so many opportunities and things to do. There are parties EVERY NIGHT, BUT if you're one of those people who don't party, you can easily find other things to do. I'm one of the people who don't party and theres always things in Providence or activities going on at school. The food is meh, and is often closed at hours when you might want to eat....There are lots of good places to eat at nearby though, but will soon make you a broke college student.

Johnson & Wales might not have the smartestAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
Johnson & Wales might not have the smartest people attending its school but it definitely has the people that have great people skills. It is in the center of Providence and you can never get bored. If you have trouble in classes the professors are more than willing to help. I have a professor who doesn't let anyone fail quizzes or tests. She makes your retake them until you get the grade you want and until you learn all the material. This school is very hands on and it seems like almost everyone gets a job after graduation.
