3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus is pretty safe. I have heard of a few car break ins but other than that I feel pretty safe. Campus police are always around making sure the students are safe and the university defense classes for women in case they are faced with a situation on campus where they may be attacked and how to defend themselves.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I believe that getting a degree from Wayne state university would be very beneficial to my career success in the future. They have a good reputation for their academic programs

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've never lived on campus but have visited a few friends dorm rooms and they were okay.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: A lot of Greek activities on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Diverse environment. Great campus life. A lot of activities and additional resources from academic help to financial help and also support groups.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are some teachers that are really understanding and want you to succeed. And there are some that seem to want to make your life stressed and miserable.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being a music major at Wayne State University, the first thing you think of is the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. There are not any internships for my major anywhere really. There is respect with being a music major, with so many famous and successful musicians coming from Wayne State, so there is a reputation to uphold.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus police answer calls in literally less than a minute, and the phones that immediately call them are stationed well around campus and actually work. There are still thefts and things on streets that qualify as public streets, but being in the center of campus seems much more safe. The cops cruise around all day and interact with students regularly

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've only been in Towers, and the two years I have been there have been an average experience. The hallways was always dirty with food and things, the washers and dryers never worked, the kitchen and little workout machines was nice. The separated toilet and shower was also nice. Not a lot of social things to do, though that may be because I did not attend many of them. Move in day is slightly hectic, having been on both sides of moving in as a student and helping students move in as a volunteer.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am very indifferent to the greek life on my campus. I have heard bad and good things about both fraternities and sororities from people that are in them, and people who are not. I know they host a lot of the parties and activities on campus, but I don't hear about them doing much on the community service side of things.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't personally go to any games really anymore. I used to my first year. But it seems like the football games get the most attendance, and then basketball. The others kind of trail off evenly. I think there's a decent amount of school spirit that there are a lot of kids that activerly wear gear from the school everyday.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience has not been bad at all. I like the small campus, and the activities they do for us every week. The only thing I think that makes my school unique is the location. Being in downtown Detroit really helps to apply some spice to the college experience.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Well there are lots of parties. Also, if you're not partying, you could just hang out at the Student Center until it closes.

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are lots of organizations and groups on campus to help you.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: New faces everywhere you go.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's okay but students are pretty sneaky.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have an on-campus clinic and also campus police that keeps us safe and healthy.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've enjoyed most of my professors so far. In my major, the teachers are all very intelligent and passionate about fashion. They also provide a lot of help for being a connection.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of job opportunities talked about a lot on campus for business, engineering, and science related majors. They have it pretty easy for finding help for a career, but being a fashion major, there is not much help offered on campus or through career services.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a lot of petty thefts reported on campus, usually from someone that does not attend the school and just walks up and steals something. Sometimes I do not feel safe walking alone on campus but I know I can always call campus police to escort me somewhere.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm in greek life at Wayne State! It helped me find a good group of friends, and I have done so much than I ever would have though. I've donated countless hours and money to organizations and just volunteering for things such as the Ronald Mcdonald house in Detroit. It has been very rewarding for me to join my sorority.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is definitely school spirit for the football games, but not much attention is paid to the other sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy the school for it's diversity and I get a university education, while still being able to live at home. I wish that our fashion program was more competitive, but it can be hard with a commuter university as most students work full time so teachers are not always as rigorous as they could be.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: We have the BEST police. Wayne State has their own police department and they have a minute and 30 second response time, I've never felt so safe in Detroit.

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.
