4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Wayne State has been improving the campus since I started here in 2012. The student center is being remodeled (and will be done by September), the libraries and study areas are getting technical updates, and they are redoing any damaged concrete on campus. The classrooms and desk still look and work great, so it's hard to tell how old anything is. Almost everywhere on campus is a green space because of all the trees, nice shrubbery, and flowers on campus.

This campus always has events going on. Whether it be fundraisers, bake sales, Greek rush weeks, or just fun activities, there's always something. The only way you can be bored on campus is if you choose to stay in your room and do absolutely nothing but breathe and stare at the walls.

In the dorms, my only complaint are the showers in one resident hall. However, there are no community bathrooms in the dorms I can't complain too much; only my roommate and I use our bathroom, not the entire floor.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is always more expensive than off campus, however, you cannot beat dorm life at Wayne State University. Not only is it convent to live on campus since you are right in the middle of campus, but the dorms itself are relatively new. The freshman dorms include private bathrooms and the ability to control the thermostat from each room, plus the cafeterias are new and include basically everything you could want.

Facilities: I love my campus! They have different activities for all students weekly. There is Thursdays in the D (which is free almost all the time or just a few dollars) were transportation is provided. There is also Warrior Wednesday, which is a day to show school spirit, sometimes we get gifts and there is music and different activities on campus. The campus is like a small city itself, its in the open and very close to downtown Detroit. We have an athletic center with a pool we can use, a fitness center with a women's area and different fitness classes for free, the student center has a great variety of choices to eat, etc. Also there are hundreds of organizations to join and if students like they can make their own.

Wayne State University is big but still small enough where all the classes are located relatively close together and you are able to form bonds with your professors and many other students. In general, the people on campus are friendly and willing help you out. Professors, staff, RAs, and peer mentors are available to talk to if you ever need help with anything, whether it is homesick or problems in a class. The University offers free tutoring and Supplemental Instruction (SI) to help if you’re having academic trouble. SI is basiclaly a study group led by a student who already took the class and received an A. The SI leader tries to explain the material in an easier method of understanding and will make up practice tests to help students prepare for real tests. Some professors even use examples from the practice tests in the class exams, so it’s beneficial to go to SI. It is purely optional, but students have found that it raises their grades, on average, by half a grade.

There are so many opportunities available on campus, and you can get involved as much as you want. Wayne State is not a party school and holds academics to a very high level—you will get your tuition's worth. In addition, WSU is very diverse and can best be summed up by what one current WSU student said: "The cultural diversity of campus and the metropolitan campus setting has opened me to so many ideas and experiences that I would never have had access to in the small town where I went to high school. I would definitely come here again." Overall, the students’ experiences have been positive and many say they would come to Wayne State University all over again.
