Table[edit]

Help me with the table! Lotsofissues 12:02, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

The data for the other campus' should either be separated or organized differently. The template used looks awful with all those other JWU locations.

How did the image just disappear? Image page completely disappeared. Lotsofissues 08:07, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Stub Template[edit]

Removed stub template. There's enough information in the article, I don't think we need to classify it as a stub. Jerry G. Sweeton Jr. 12:32, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Jwu logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Jwu logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:57, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Why is the logo being used? Because its the logo of the school! I think thats a good enough reason alone. Don't you?

Absorption of "Rhode Island School of Electronics"[edit]

The technology division of JWU was once the Rhode Island School of Electronics (known just prior to being sold/donated (I'm not sure which) to JWU as "Rhode Island School of Electronics: Institute of Technology" and "Rhode Island Institute of Technology"). I was a RISE student in 1986 who went through the transition to J&W grad in 1988.

J&W was "Johnson & Wales College" until just after the RISE purchase, when it became "Johnson & Wales University".

I'd like to expound on this some more, but wanted to pass it by everyone...

NPOV[edit]

" This makes this school one of the best of its kind. Just look at Emeril Lagasse, a food network star, who adds music to what he learned at JWU!" NPOV - Stricken. 67.221.92.135 (talk) 15:24, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Formatting the Notable Alumni Section[edit]

Right now we have a bullet list that's not sorted in any particular order, and some of our most notable alumni are towards the middle or bottom of the list. Ideally we could sort the list by notability, but that's so subjective that it'd turn into an edit war. I suggest we sort the list by graduation year. Any objection?

Degree List[edit]

I've been trying to find a way to list the different programs and degrees offered at JWU without taking up an inordinate amount of space. I've come up with this table. Can anyone suggest any changes to the layout or formatting, or perhaps more information we could add to it? I'll drop it in the academics section next week if there's no objection.

location of culinary school[edit]

The article says "a subsidiary campus housing JWU's culinary and graduate programs (called Harborside and opened in 1985) in Cranston, Rhode Island;" but also "The Providence Downcity campus is home to the College of Business, the Hospitality College, the College of Arts & Sciences, and the School of Technology.[9] This campus is home to several additional academic units: the Alan Shawn Feinstein Graduate School and the College of Culinary Arts."

The second seems to imply that the culinary school is at Downcity.

Also the latter paragraph is confusing in other ways- not clear whether it's meant to just be talking about Downcity, Rhode Island altogether, or JWU altogether.
