In addition nearly 5,000 JWU students, Providence is home to artists, professionals, leaders and innovators. The city is fed by award-winning restaurants, many of which were founded and staffed by our graduates who loved the city so much they stayed. Its thriving music, arts and theater scene attracts talent from across the globe, and it has even been named “America’s Favorite City” by Travel + Leisure. Our Providence Campus could be called the “JWU original,” as it was founded first in 1914. It’s actually composed of two separate campuses: Downcity and Harborside, both of which offer unique experiences that are still distinctly JWU.
Home of ballparks, stadiums, upscale entertainment centers and more, Charlotte has also been ranked among the best places for business, so it’s one of the best places to launch your career. The campus was established as a combined effort between the university, the city and industry partners, meaning JWU Charlotte is incredibly plugged into downtown. There’s even a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel on campus where hospitality students can hone their craft, and a Student Innovation Lab where business students can brainstorm ideas for presentations and entrepreneurial undertakings.
