What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
Johnson & Wales (or JWU) is the perfect school if you're looking for city life on a welcoming scale. The medium sized student body allows for individual attention from professors and more hands on experience. As a whole the campus comes together making for a perfect college experience.
Madison from Allentown, PA
Johnson and Wales has amazing opportunites that any incoming freshmen/transfer would like to accomplish. Both Harborside and Downcity Campuses are beautiful making it home away from home. Everyone here is willing to help each other which is great.
