4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Never seen anyone doing drugs.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Never went to a game.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I attend the gym on campus and it is up to date with many different kinds of machines

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wayne State is a great school because it gives perspective to a whole new group of people. One that is separated by race, as we are all there to learn and gain a new skill. I like that the school is very close to the downtown city and I love the campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are quite stressful and it won't be guaranteed that you will have professors of great quality but maybe that is just a part of any college. There are a lot of courses offered and have different class styles (traditional, hybrid and online), depending on the course.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would say even though I haven't had the most fantastic reviews about this school, the job outlook for me is looking pretty good. I want to be a high school math teacher and my advisor told me that he could get me a job when I graduate almost automatically.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel okay about the safety on campus. I came into contact with someone who was robbed and he was asking me where he could call to report what happened to him. Other than that, I have heard of some robberies but not a whole lot. I wouldn't walk alone at night on campus at all and I would have a very eerie feeling if I did. Besides that, I feel okay about my own safety. I do see officers driving around campus a lot.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I personally didn't like the housing all that much. It is definitely a little difficult especially if you have a roommate in the small dorms. For some of the dorms, I don't necessarily think it's worth the price. Nothing is amazing or just great. It's full of "I guess it'll dos". Try to aim for the ones where you can have your own little room like your bedroom at home but still have it be a dorm with roommates so at least it's not as expensive as it could be. The social atmosphere is nice I guess. There are people that will talk to you there. It is possible to meet new friends there seeing that I have at the time of living in my dorm. Pretty much, everyone mostly minds their own business.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I enjoyed the step shows I've been too and everybody that are Greeks are pretty much like family to each other in their own groups. About everyone likes seeing them in action. Also, a lot of people attend the parties they throw which is kind of expected at a college. It's one of those stereotypical college movie things that actually happen in real life. Not down to the t, but a lot of people do attend them.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really have any views about the athletics. I have been to a football game though and it was nice, not too many people came though. The students there are relatively spirited and supportive but other than that, to be honest, Is all I really know. I'm not very involved when it comes to that scene.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is something to get used to, but it has things as far as activities and such goes for just about everyone. I don't know if I would choose this school again because it isn't for everyone and you should pick a school that caters to what you need. I'm not sure if this school is necessarily a great choice. I have only been going here for a year. Something I would say is that there is almost always something to do and go to either on campus and especially because of it being next to downtown Detroit.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Wayne State is a safe campus. Although there have been some incidents of crime on campus those are isolated events. I safe walking up and down my campus.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is something many students partake in but I haven't myself. Geek life have many events and are recognized around campus.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The overall experience at Wayne State has been great. The students are friendly, teachers are always willing to help and there are always some type of activity around campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: College is the best, it's new and exciting with an abundance of opportunity! The professors regularly go out of their way to assist you. The only downfall is paying for it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've never used this resource but I do have a sister who graduated from WSU and was able to find work weeks later.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at school and there are so many resources available if that feeling of safety or safety itself is ever compromised.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I commute to and from school so I am actually unaware of the housing at school, however, on tour it looked very nice

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Due to the area of WSU, greek life isn't huge, however, greek life does exist.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have not really involved myself in the WSU athletics but I am aware of our football team and the immenseness of it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's an amazing experience to attend Wayne State University. The classes and the environment of the community are amazing aspects any student would love to have.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have heard great things.

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.
