3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food of campus is good especially during the weekends when on campus dining closes early but if you don't have a car walking can be a bit of a pain if the weather is bad

4 College Freshman

Computers: I cant complain about the computers, the WI-FI can be a bit slow sometimes in the dorms because of the number if students that will use it at the same time so its best to used the wired internet if your in the dorms

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the dorms compared to any other campus i have ever visited. Every room has a personal bathroom, with individually controlled air conditioning. Ever other floor has a common kitchen area for cooking. There are special accommodations for those who want to live on an all girl floor or 24 hour quiet floor. In one of the dorms there's even a 21 and up floor where drinking is allowed .

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: campus is pretty strict about taking food out of the cafeteria and visitations in dorms. You can sign someone in everyday to visit if you want but you can only have 6 overnights a month

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Its not hard to make friends here if your friendly and involved. A lot of people make close friends with people who have the same major as them.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Although there is smoking and drinking on campus its rarely ever just out in the open, no one tries to get caught because they can get in trouble for it

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are very very few options for off-campus housing, either its extremely nice but extremely pricey or its really cheap and really broke down, and anything that you can find in between the two have a huge waiting list or you need a car because its quite a walk in the winter without one

College Freshman

Academics: I am currently undecided on my major

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The support events are attended but everyone on campus doesn't always go but its enough for support

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I don't feel unsafe on campus, the only crime that you usually hear about is people getting their phone stolen at like 2:00 a.m. outside but that can easily be prevented and if you don't feel safe walking across campus or to your car you can get a police escort.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There aren't special taxis dedicated to the campus and the city taxis aren't all that reliable, the shuttle only goes from the main campus to the medical campus, city buses aren't at all reliable and zip cars are only convenient if you can afford it .

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are Greeks on campus but all of them aren't known, so sometimes it seems like there aren't very many Greeks on campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had to visit a financial aid officer because some of the additional paperwork they wanted

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: There isnt a lot of parties that go on on campus, a lot of the fun comes from off campus events once it gets later into the school year

3 College Freshman

Parking: street parking is usually full during class hours and during the week

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Everything that's good is either in walking or driving

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It could always be better.

3 College Junior

Athletics: It could always be better.

3 College Junior

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It depends on the person.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Not really alot of off campus housing

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.
