Try to do well in highschool now, because they give out HUGE scholarships and campus awards to people that got good HS grades. I didn't even go to a vocational school in HS, and I'm doing baking & pastry, and they gave me almost 16K for the four years, plus 10K just for this year. I can't stress this enough.

    Don't let the fake warm welcome trick you like it tricked me. I was so happy to apply here, but am now transferring out. Overall the school is okay if you just want to party. The school is also split in half between culinary and downcity and to get between campuses it's a 15 minute bus ride.

    Loved the classrooms I saw, very old brick building that seemed antique yet warm. Food hall was,well, a food hall but the campus had a nice in the city but near the halls you had your own main campus with a green and everything.

    Johnson and Wales is an amazing school and I so happy I chose it. Im currently double majoring in culinary and baking pastry. Labs are extremely fun and working at the dining center on campus is such a great experience because I'm able to learn so much. People on campus are extremely nice and professors will go out of their way to help you as much as possible. There are absolutly so many opportunities to shine.

    Johnson & Wales is located in a small city which is great for those from more suburban or rural areas to get adjusted into city life. However, this college is only best for culinary or hospitality as their other programs are lackluster and sometimes, unaccredited. This school is perfect for those students who want an open and accepting environment in a small city.
