Positive Negative Neutral Advice
I don't know why these people are soBrightComputer Science
I don't know why these people are so negative it's a great school not just to attend but to live in as well. Compared to most other schools, the dorm rooms are huge and if you're willing to pay a little extra, you get your own bathroom. Everything you need is within walking distance. I only had to take the bus once.

Question
I think J&W is a good university.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I think J&W is a good university. The professors care about their students. The facilities are ok. It's very apparent that they care about freshmen students by the way they take care of the downtown dorm. The only problem here is that there is way too many negative folks here that put down this school left and right. Not everybody here has mommy and daddy to send them money on a weekly basis. I work for a living and I go to school. Also, J&W does not really promote its schools besides culinary. But, its what you put in the experience and come away with more knowledge.

Question
No matter what college you go to, thereBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
No matter what college you go to, there will always be something to complain about. There are people filled with so much disdain for JWU, well about 6 of them have nothing better else to do than to sit here and knock anything good about this school.. But you know what?? They still go here, they still pay tuition, so it can't be that bad or else they would transfer...

JWU is a great college, but no matter where you go, YOU have to make it worthwhile... There are many opportunites on and off campus that will make your time in RI interesting... Don't give up on old Johnny Wales just yet!!
