    While most campus's have a dinning hall or two, Johnson & Wales has a Dinning Hall on the down city campus and one on the Harboside campus. In addition to both dining hallS, JWU offers a variety of other dining options to keep your meal plan from being repetitive. These places include, Red Sauce (italian style food), BYOB (Build your own burrito), City Burger (burgers and fries), Starbucks, and Market Place (a full market of snacks and pre-made foods)

    The food sucks and you have very few choices for food on campus.

    It varies. But being on harborside, you get sick of pasta. There are plenty of options downtown or on harborview though.

    Restaurant, fast food, and buffet styled dining halls on campus. There is a JWU app that tells the menu for the day at the buffet styled dining halls. The app also tells you the hours of operation.

    We have a couple of diners and eating places like harborview, snowden, city burger, red sauce, liberty market and starbucks. I personally can't get over the coffe in starbucks, i drink it everyday. The soups at red sauce are soooo good and snowden is my ultimate favorite place to go for breakfast. They omlettes and pancakes buffet style. Harborview has a make your own salad bar and stir fry with a burger station. It has really good food and the fries at city burger are to die for.

    Greek life at Johnson & Wales University Providence campus is unlike anything i have ever experienced. With so many Sororities and Fraternities on campus, it is almost like we have our own little community. Every organization on campus does whatever they can to support each other especially when it comes to fundraising for our philanthropies. The friends made within Greek life (including Alumni) become a great way to network and find job or internship opportunities all over.

    Very large and active Greek Life. All of the sororities and frats are highly involved in the community and are always volunteering or attending events.

    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.
