REMINDER: Semester Transition Town Hall Meetings This Thursday, June 21

Starting this August, Johnson & Wales University’s graduate programs, with the exception of master’s level education programs, will transition to a semester calendar. While the conversion to semesters for all undergraduate and master’s level education programs will not take effect until the fall of 2020, many current and prospective students are asking questions about these changes. It is important for all members of the university community to be aware of this transition and answer our students’ questions or guide them to the appropriate information.

Both meetings will take place on Thursday, June 21.

Downcity Campus - 10 am
Presentation Room (first floor), John J. Bowen Center for Science and Innovation

Harborside Campus - 1 pm
Wildcat Lounge (second floor), Wildcat Center

Photos of the Week

Now in its 6th year hosted at JWU's College of Culinary Arts, the Honey Baking Summit brought together bakers from all over the US to learn about and bake with honey. Sponsored by the National Honey Board, the event included breakout sessions that delved into consumer trends in honey, honey history — and even an apiary tour.

Director of culinary operations and on-campus bee expert Matt Tetzner led the Honey Summit attendees on a buzzworthy tour of JWU's small but mighty apiary, which is overseen by the student group Bee the Change during the academic year.
