4 College Senior

Greek Life: The sisterhood and brotherhood at Wayne State is amazing. If you want to see how real sororities and fraternities are ran, Wayne State is your school. It's not about the parties at all its about the lifelong pledge you have while along side your brothers and sisters.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Varsity sports at Wayne State University is a not so big part of the school. In schools like Michigan State and University of Michigan are known for their sports and Wayne State University has not quite gotten there yet.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My college is unique because Wayne State University is one of the top schools for my field of study, which is Nursing. Nothing is handed to a student here at Wayne State, the professors want you to focus, understand, and to work hard. Wayne State's instructors are awesome, we students are a reflection of what they're teaching so they push us to work hard and welcome us with opened arms if we do not understand the subject at hand. They also suggest different study tips and the best of the best tutors if we are to need further assistance.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is one of the 3 schools in Michigan that allow undergrad students to take part in research projects. Also it is a commuter school, and has great professors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Depending on your major, a degree from this school can be great or mediocre.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have not been many cases of safety issues. Wayne state has its own police, so they have a quicker response time compared to the Detroit police.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are football games and school spirit for sporting events, however it is not a large part of student life.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a nice campus and great environment. It is in the middle of a great city, and the student body is very diverse. Many commuting students, and parking is not a problem. There is also a wide variety of majors, and approachable professors.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Wayne State University has a few sports. I wish they had Track and Field for men. The football and basketball games are always fun. They try their best to interact with the crowd and get the crowd involved.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I originally wanted to go to a completely different school but once I went on a tour I didn't enjoy myself. One day my friend suggested Wayne State University as an option. I went on a tour and I loved it. It's in downtown Detroit and everything is in walking distance. The dorms are near the classrooms so I'm never late for class. It's a very safe campus and there are always activities on campus. I wouldn't trade my experience here for the world.

Overall Experience: Although it has its issues, I have no regrets about attending.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The advisors will actively help you job search and post job listings. There are also about 20 career fairs per year.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The Wayne State police force is extremely active. VIN etching, safe walk, RAD and self defense course, blue boxes, you name it, we have it. The only time it feels unsafe-ish is walking the edge of campus.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The fitness center is excellent, with class offerings every weekday. Varsity athletics are pretty much nonexistent.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Although wayne state will not appeal to everyone, I've found the diversity of students and educational experiences to be great.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: the dorms have a lot of room depending on which dorms you enter

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wayne state is a great school, and the courses are good. But, like I said before, I think that it is important for teachers to actually care about what they are teaching and it honestly seems like they don't.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of my friends have gotten jobs as RA's and have been able to live on campus rent free, but they don't feel like the job really does anything for them. I understand it would be awesome to live on campus but I would HATE having to be taken away from my education.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have had personal experiences with sexual assault on campus as well as many of my friends have. Sexual assault is a problem and people don't really realize it.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live in a dorm due to financial problems, but everyone that lives in dorms talks about how terrible it is. It is so expensive and the dorms are really dirty. I hear that people have problems with the RA's and how unclean everything is.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life, for myself anyways has opened a lot of doors and has been really helpful. I found that I was really involved in Greek Life and although sometimes it can be financially hard, I love being able to be a part of something that can give me lifelong connections.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: People don't really go to any of the sports events. Our biggest turn out was at the Homecoming Football Game that was last year and it was the biggest turn out since the 1940s. I think that involvement in sports needs to be bigger and better considering people aren't really involved.

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.
