Get To Know JWU: Three Can’t-Miss JWU Events

The entire college journey is an exciting time for students. From the first day of classes to the time you walk across the stage at graduation, your experience makes you into the person you’re destined to become. But many people don’t realize that a big part of the college experience starts sooner than the first day of classes — in fact, it starts when you choose where you want to spend the next few years.

At JWU, we take pride in the experience our students have during their time with us. Whether in Providence or Charlotte, many of our students would agree being a Wildcat is a roaring time.

But how can you be sure JWU is the right fit for you? Explore a few ways you can really get to know us as you learn more about everything we have to offer:

Campus Tours

Led by a JWU student, this walking tour lets you see where you will live, learn and pursue your passion as a Wildcat. For both prospective students and families, it’s our chance to welcome you to campus and show you a glimpse into the daily life of our students in Providence and Charlotte.

Can’t make it to campus?

Don’t worry! We’ve designed online digital tours so we can bring campus to you. One of our Wildcats will lead you through campus virtually in real-time and will be able to answer any questions you have about JWU.

College Nights

Are you interested in learning how our advertising and marketing students work on campaigns for national brands? Or do you want to end up behind the scenes for a media company? Through College Nights, you can explore it all!

In these virtual events, you can meet with professors and the dean of each college to hear from them about how JWU really stands out. Recently recognized by US News for undergraduate teaching excellence, JWU’s professors are eager to meet you, too, through this event.

You’ll also have the opportunity to chat with other students who share similar interests. Whether you want to attend just one or all of our college nights, learn more below about how to sign up.
