This summer I took my first ever online class at Johnson & Wales. I am currently a full-time student at the Johnson & Wales University Providence Campus but wanted to continue my education and earn some extra credits over the summer. I was accepted to an internship program based in Jerusalem and chose to take an additional class while I was away. While looking through the online options, I stumbled upon a free elective called “Culture and Food” and figured that there was no better class to take while I was exploring abroad.
Each May, the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in downtown Providence hosts the Johnson & Wales University commencement ceremonies. The graduates are the focus of the celebration; however, for Kara Morissette ’18, who earned her BS – Liberal Studies from the Johnson & Wales College of Online Education, this day was just as much for her friends and family, especially her two young children, who were in the crowd watching her walk.
Ordering takeout used to only be reserved for Chinese food and pizza. However, times they are a changin’. If you own a food or beverage operation or have ever thought of opening one, you’d better start thinking about how you’ll meet the increasing demand for digital-powered delivery.

Johnson & Wales University (JWU) and Bloomin’ Brands, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLMN), have much in common: Both are world renowned for hospitality and culinary excellence, and both believe that an educated workforce leads to success. It follows then that as Bloomin’ Brands was exploring ways to make a college education more affordable and accessible for their nearly 100,000 employees and their various concepts, which include Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill, and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, they turned to JWU.
At the Johnson & Wales University College of Online Education, we know hospitality. As a university, we’ve spent years making a name for ourselves in the industry and have earned a reputation for excellence among hospitality employers.
