OUR STUDENTS' PVD PICKS

Our JWU Providence students shared some of their favorite places to spend time – and many of them are just steps from campus!

FEDERAL HILL

or “Little Italy,” for dining and strolling

PROVIDENCE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER (PPAC)

for international theatre and musical acts

BANKNEWPORT CITY CENTER(PROVIDENCE RINK)

for ice-skating, roller-skating and ice-bumper cars

“Providence is a beautiful and artistic city with a lot to offer. There is art all around the city; buildings are painted with huge murals and there are sculptures scattered around .... I recommend visiting Weybosset Street, Thayer Street, and The Arcade Providence. They are fun areas to walk around and have a ton of small shops with interesting finds.” — Leah Ward ’23

ROGER WILLIAMS PARK

for swan boat rides, a zoo, a natural history museum/planetarium, and food truck nights

RISD MUSEUM

where JWU students get free admission

WATERFIRE

for live entertainment and food vendors against a backdrop of music and artistry
