Providence is a tiny city in a small state, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in opportunity and character. Nestled right off of I-95, the tiny, teeming metropolis is a northeastern hub of intelligence and culture. You will soon find this out after you and your trusted interstate movers have finished your long trek. Within the city, there are three different institutes of higher learning that have each garnered an exceptional reputation in academia.
Providence College (PC)
This liberal arts institute was started in the early 20th century, with the help of Dominican Friars as well as the Providence Diocese. Today, the college still maintains its status as a Catholic school, holds regularly scheduled masses and the Friars are a mainstay on campus. According to the school's official website, PC was one of the first schools to extend a welcoming hand to students of every denomination, and to this day it remains a wellspring of diversity.
The majors offered at PC include studio art, chemistry, finance, French and a series of others.
Brown has been around since the 18th century, and through the years it has gained an impeccable reputation as a renowned academic institution. The Ivy League university offers 48 doctoral programs and 28 different master's degrees. Its activity and intelligence are rivaled only by its beauty. Brown sits in the Thayer Street neighborhood up on College Hill, its grassy courtyards and red brick facade buildings are complemented by its ocean-side location.
Johnson and Wales University (JWU)
Like its counterparts, JWU offers myriad majors such as business, hospitality and arts and sciences. What sets this institute apart is its world-renowned culinary program. Not only do students get time in the classroom learning the finer points of their trade, but pupils also get hands on training in the school's kitchens from professional chefs who have worked in the highly competitive industry.
