JWU Student Blogs


Hey everyone! For those of you who didn’t know, Counseling Psychology is a new major at Johnson & Wales in the Arts & Science division. Despite this, Counseling Psychology has grown tremendously and still continues to be a growing major. Through hard work and consistency we developed a Psychology Club!!! This club does not exclude other majors or students, so please be sure to stop by! The Psychology Club can’t wait to meet you! I will be posting the next meeting information as soon as I receive it, stay tuned, thank you!


The fall tri for this academic year, as you already know has begun. So I’m sure most of you have had to find the strength, patience, and time for homework. Also, pretty soon we will have to register for classes for the upcoming winter tri. Dont let homework be a burden to you. Plan accordingly, and never be afraid to ask for help! Goodluck to all with all upcoming projects, papers, and assignments!

Internship Week 3

Hello again! So I ended last week on Saturday 9/21 by volunteering with the rest of my office to try to raise awareness about Making Strides Against Breast Cancer at the Seafood Fest in Point Pleasant, NJ. There were so many people there! We handed out brochures about the walk and raised almost $600 for the cause! It was great to raise more awareness about the event and meet some fantastic survivors who are excited to join us!

This is a little taste of what some of the members of the Modernist Cuisine Club learned this past weekend from Modernist Chefs Chris Young and Grant Crilly. The Modernist Cuisine Club will be learning and demonstrating various techniques throughout the year, including the use of sous vide cooking and food grade chemicals.

I’ve just joined this exciting club so I’ll be sure to keep you all up to date on the exciting techniques we cover!

I've been thinking of trying to go to the RI campus for culinary school. I had a question on homework. What is homework in culinary school like exactly?

Thanks for your question! In labs you will have homework pertaining to the lesson in class. It may be a work sheet or the Chef may ask that you read a portion of the text book. You will also have a project for each lab class that is usually a paper going in depth about the information learned in the lab. Let us know if you have any other questions :)

Internship Weeks 1 & 2

New Year New Campus

Hello again everyone, this year I am excited to announce that I will be blogging from the Providence, Rhode Island campus! That’s right, I transferred. I loved my two years at the North Miami campus and decided to make a move while I had the opportunity to try something new.
