JWU Magazine

JWU Magazine captures the news, events and programs that distinguish Johnson & Wales. Magazine features showcase the university’s depth and range — from 50 years of culinary excellence to community partnerships that address real-world problems with experiential fieldwork for students.

The publication, which is produced each fall and spring, connects alumni to campus by highlighting the university’s evolution while celebrating their passions and accomplishments post-graduation. It serves as a source for thought leaders, students, prospective students and graduates to read about the latest Wildcat court championship in the Athletics section to a campus exhibit on student research projects, new directions and leaders on both campuses, as well as alumni gatherings and networking opportunities around the country — including event previews and registration details for annual traditions such as reunion and homecoming.

Interested in reading more than just the Feature sections? Full digital editions of past JWU Magazines are now available.
