7/5/2016 | As of Friday, July 1, 2016, all 4 of Johnson & Wales University’s campuses are officially tobacco free. Faculty, staff and students assembled on the lawn in front of the Yena Center on JWU’s Providence campus to celebrate becoming the first university in Rhode Island to become tobacco free. JWU joins approximately 1,100 other colleges and universities across the country.
Last year, JWU’s Providence Campus installed its newest symbol of spirit, a massive bronze Wildcat sculpture. Now the university’s regional campuses — North Miami, Denver and Charlotte — are gearing up to welcome their own big cats.
