    Our classmates work in the dining halls. We cook our own food which is awesome. You should at least try each hall to see which one is your favorite so then you can make group plans with friends or classmates and go grab a bite to eat. Also make sure that you have your own snacks and goodies just incase you feel like having a midnight snack.

    All Food and Dining facilities are average tasting food. It's not out of this world amazing but it is delicious. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are all offered with every menu changing every day of the week. But if you want to change it up a bit, you can always email the dining department for suggestions. On the weekends when the lunch rooms aren't open, go out to Sakis, Gourmet Heaven, or Pizza Queen which is right across the street from the Downcity Campus. Everything is made fresh and for a reasonable price.

    It's nice to have an area for dining and buy food within the dorms because we don't have to out of campus for those things which saves students a bit of money.

    Johnson and Wales has a wonderful culinary program and the students who are Culinary Arts majors often work in the dining halls, so to say the least the food is generally phenomenal!

    Good, but would expect it to be much better considering our culinary expertise. Several options available with quite different atmospheres which is nice. Don't feel like eating on campus, step outside our gate to a variety of options the city of Providence has to offer!

    As a member of Greek Life on campus, I believe it is an excellent opportunity for students to improve as a person. It gets students involved in community service, on campus activities, and networking. Members of Greek organizations tend to have higher GPAs because it means a lot to them and they also have very strong values. I also promote Greek Life to prospective students.
