Hungry? The next time you head out for a bite, ask for a graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, to help you. JWU is the world’s largest educator in the fields of food service and hospitality. Originally founded as a business school in 1914, it expanded to incorporate four distinct colleges, several dozen degree programs (including such concentrations as fashion management and equine studies), 13 residence halls and 15 Greek chapters. Its 16,000-strong student body enjoys access to over 100 special-interest clubs as well as opportunities to study abroad in exotic Costa Rica, France, and many more destinations. Furthermore, JWU teaches the value of service (the Wildcats regularly log more than 100,000 volunteer hours within surrounding communities per year!) and actively helps in not just purveying knowledge, but in building careers from the ground up (recent internship placements include design positions at Hasbro, Inc. and governmental posts within the FBI.) Second-to-none, JWU’s commitment to students shines like a beacon of hope!
