5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I have lived in this area my whole life, the restaurants are amazing.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I have had no problems with them.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got the financial aid that I needed but, I did not like the process. The second semester it took them until after the deadline to disperse the scholarships into my account.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The upper cafeteria was one of the deciding factors in my choice to come here. The lower cafeteria is a little expensive. The food in both is amazing. And the people who work there are wonderful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love that the campus is all in one area, that makes it so much easier to get from class to class. It is very reasonably priced.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: There really is no set of rules that have to be followed. The RA's don't enforce much.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a plethora of reasons I have had an overall poor experience here at Wayne State. Many of them personal, many of them from the school itself. There's just no fitting in if you're an out of state student like I am. Everyone goes home on weekends, so if you're out of state and don't have a car, you're basically living in a ghost town for a weekend. My major is good but we need an upgrade in technology, something we've been pushing for for a while not but have so far been unsuccessful in our efforts. Overall I just felt like an outcasted nobody here. This place does not welcome foreigners and it certainly does not welcome liberals. Don't make the same mistake I made... Do not attend Wayne State College

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The advisor has a lot of connections, but the technology is outdated which is holding us media students back. I feel like if this was maybe 15 years ago, I would certainly get a job right out of college, now I'm not so sure. The program gets overshadowed by a lot of different things, mainly the fact that we're located in a building that from the outside looks like it has only 3 floors, when in actuality it has 4 and we're on the 4th one, with no windows. No one really knows that the campus radio station exists, the TV station plays the same slideshow of the library hours ad infinitum, and the newspaper is read mostly by alumni. Overall you'll learn a lot of intangible stuff and you'll be able to express your creativity, but the threshold between creativity and needing technology advances gets crossed a lot.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Going out at night is something I would not recommend. There's a lot of drunk people, not very well lit, it gets pretty cold at night, campus security is pretty strict but they are helpful. Student health can recommend you to a doctor at the local hospital, but from what I've heard some of the doctors at the hospital are not the greatest. As far as sexual assault goes, people have been sexually assaulted on and off campus, but in Wayne we have what's called the Haven House, which helps with domestic abuse or sexual assault, and they are a fantastic service in Wayne.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity has been suspended because of underage drinking at a party that lead to possible alcohol poisoning, and everything else is more of an honor society than an actual frat or sorority. The TKE's used to have a house, but that got taken away after their suspension.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Here's the deal. Friday going into Saturday everyone and their mother's goes home for the weekend. When Saturday rolls around and the football team runs on the field, you'll find the outside community, and like a handful of students, and it's always the same students. I cover the sports for campus radio, and from what we see in the student sections, it is lackluster at best. Yet the school has adopted the attitude that athletics should be a central focus of the campus, despite poor attendance from the student body. As far as the actual athletics are concerned, we have a great rugby and women's basketball team. Football is having a rough stretch, men's basketball is in a rebuilding stage, baseball has struggled not to mention that they all sit at the same table in the cafeteria and act obnoxious and loud. Rec center's pretty decent, but of course the athletes get the private workout rooms.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I go and visit my friends who live off-campus and they've done a fairly good job of maintaining and keeping their house nice. Landlords are always going to vary. The apartments, if you can find them at all, are sketchy. Things happen late at night in Wayne America that would deter most from living off-campus. I'm not familiar with the process but I can all but guarantee Wayne State doesn't like you moving off-campus. Parking is a little ridiculous because the driveways can extend to the sidewalks, and god help you if your car extends even an inch over cause you will get a ticket. Unless your car is blocking the whole sidewalk entirely then for some reason no ticket. Pose minor inconvenience=ticket, block sidewalk entirely=meh that's fine. Ridiculous.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Where oh where do I even begin... Let's just start with the fact that as I am looking to transfer, Wayne has been nothing but unhelpful in sending my transcripts to my applied transfer school. It's like they know I'm transferring, and thus holding me hostage. If you walk into the administrative building and say the word "retention," or "retention rate," you may as well have yelled "fire" in a crowded theatre. They know that students typically don't stay all for years, or use it as a stepping stone for some other big name school like UNL. As far as strictness goes they are either really strict or completely oblivious. If they catch you, you're a dead man, but that's assuming they catch you at all. And sometimes the punishment does not suit the crime, or the rule makes a crime out of something trivial. We have to go to the residence life office before we can hang up flyers, because they have to be "approved." CENSORSHIP! But I digress. You also have to go through "chartwells" the catering company, if you want any food item sold/given away at any club event. Let's say you're in the club of students who do things, and you want to raise funds for a conference by selling popcorn. You have to go through chartwells, and go through the student activities office and fill out a pile of paperwork just so you can sell $0.50 bags of popcorn. It is absolutely ridiculous.

Party Scene: I don't go to parties but I have plenty of friends that tell me the one's that are around are bad. We had an incident at the Tau Kappa Epsilon house where some girls were at a party, underage drinking and had possible alcohol poisoning, and it forced the TKE's to be removed from campus. Also there's pretty much nothing open past 8:00pm and if there's any wind of any party of any sorts Campus Security and the Wayne PD are on it like white on rice. Having said that, there really is only one thing to do on a weekend, and that's get drunk, which I would not recommend as an activity, especially for the faint of heart and liver.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: While I personally did not have too much trouble with financial aid, I have heard many a horror story about how bad the financial aid office screwed up. Buyer beware is the best advice.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I came to Wayne knowing that the cafeteria food was not going to be gourmet or anything of that sort. Having said that, I did not expect it to be a giant steaming pile of [expletive]. Here's the problem, the food is always the same, it's almost always frozen pre-made stuff, and every so often you'll see a potential health code violation. Case in point, I saw mold on a bagel, my friend noticed the burger he was eating had pink in the middle knowing it had been sitting at a warmer (he works in fast food so he knows that could lead to salmonella), and overall it just tastes bad. Now you would think that the serving of pre-made/frozen meals would be in order to save costs right? Yeah that's not working out real well for them. Rumor has it the company that caters the food, "Chartwells" is over $6000 in the hole. Why you ask? Cause they throw basically everything but the kitchen sink away, and order the same 5 things from their supplier. Oh and if you think that isn't enough, wait till you get a load of this. "Chartwells" is owned by a parent conglomerate in the UK called "Compass Group" whom had been investigated by... wait for it... wait for it... the United Nations for bribery. That's right folks, the parent company who owns my school's cafeteria caterer, was at one point investigated for shady spending practices by the United [bleeping] Nations. Yeah the food sucks.

Campus Housing: There is one dorm on campus that is of any strong value to it, called Pile Hall, with a close second being Neihardt. Other than that Bowen is filled with annoying freshmen who don't go to bed until 3:00am and they usually all pretty smashed. Morey is sketchy to the point where you wonder if someone has ever considered filming a horror film there. Berry ain't much better, in fact some have long debated which dorms are worse, Morey or Berry, so far we have not found a clear winner. The dorm I currently live in is Terrace which has it's ups and downs. The showers are very private and work very well, but there is no air conditioning. As for the atmosphere in general it seems like the students who stay in their dorms the whole time make up a fair majority of campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: its ok if you have a ton of people living with you that way it can be cheaper.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: They should get some more options.

4 College Freshman

Administration: its good to have rules

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't really been to any parties.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was easy to get help paying for school

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is good and lots of options.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its a great school, and love the kids that go here and make new friends every day.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's a small town so you have to usual small town options. Nothing fancy.
