    I enjoy being at JWU, but I hate that nobody knows the business side to JWU. The students here are friendly you grow accustomed to many different cultures. Just living on campus is nice and the dorms are well maintained unlike other colleges.

    Well, Charlotte is a beautiful city, so it is just the perfect place to go to school. Small but big if there is something like that. The dorms are great and of course the cafeteria is fantastic. Totally awesome

  • I am a current student here

    Charlotte is a very beautiful city. It is also a very buisness forward city. Many students in the culinary program at Johnson & Wales University can get their foot in the door here and can grow as a chef-in-training. I feel that besides business, the area that JWU is located in is very dull. There is not much to do except go eat at expensive restaurants if you can afford them.

    I love JWU! I am a part of the CAT team, IFSEA, an Orientation Leader for the 2011 summer, and a Student Assistant in the Admissions Office for the fall and winter terms of 2011. I couldn't ask for a better environment. I think students here are mostly hospitable, and you make great friendships that are more than friendships.
