3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Going to Wayne is very different than my high school. The campus is very diverse, which is something I was never used to. The professors are alright, some terrible some pretty good. When it comes to applying, almost anyone can get it, but what most people don't realize is how hard Wayne actually is and how strong it is academically.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although Wayne State is a very easy college to get admitted to, they are very generous with their scholarships and there are people who study as hard as I do in the Honors College. Being party of this college is rewarding because of helps me focus on a few different aspects of my life: academics, service, and leadership.

Overall Experience: Wayne State is an awesome school. In my opinion, what makes it truly unique is that it is located in the heart of midtown Detroit. There are always things to do and the atmosphere is great.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is great so far. This is my first semester at Wayne State University and i am loving it. I am majoring in psychology and Asian Studies. My Professors are amazing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Wayne State invests heavily in the community around it. The research and graduate divisions are quite successful, although undergraduate programs are a little on the weak side. However, money is currently being invested to improve undergraduate studies, at least in biology and chemistry.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, it is a good school. I will be an undergraduate freshman this upcoming fall.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While the campus is okay, the availability of some teachers is ridiculously small. The availability of counsellors is also. Kind of rediculous, I didnt even know Ihad a counsellor untill the latter half of my second year. The college is expensive, but it does have opptions for people that cant afford it so its not terrible, I just dont understand why they charge so much and then dont have more people available to help the students with figuring out classes, or filling out scholorships, or why they dont have scholorships to live on campus for people who arent playing sports. Over all its okay, I mean most colleges are the same way, I just wish I was more prepared for it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy attending my university. I've met many great friends and people. There is a large selection of courses. Choosing my own schedule is one of the best things when transitioning from high school to college. I would definitely redo my first semester of college though. I didn't do so hot academically, however I am learning how to do better in my classes now!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience so far is okay. The campus is a nice size and its located near the heart of the city. I wish there was just more to do on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like going to Wayne State. The only annoying this is the drive, I commute and it's annoying going on the highway during busy times.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Don't do to games that often, and I'm not a part of any sports. Still enjoy them though!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Again, I commute, but from what I hear, living off campus can be quite the joy!

Party Scene: Not too much into partying mainly because I commute and aren't too close with the people who live on campus

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Many different restaurants around town to swing around with friends, and do some studying!

3 College Junior

Administration: Not too many strict areas at Wayne State. You are pretty much free where ever you are.

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.
