5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: WSU is actually statistically one of the safest campuses in Michigan. The WSU police is always around and there are many access points if you need to flag down help.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: WSU is a good choice for people who want an urban and experience and also want to commute.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't big on campus since WSU is mostly a commuter school. Frats and sororities exist but the general feeling towards them is meh. If you're into it you'll be happy but if you're not, then no sweat.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports aren't a big deal on campus. Those who play sports are into it, those who don't don't really care. Football is the biggest sport in campus and gets a pretty nice turnout, but it's not that important.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I highly enjoy attending WSU. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful, class sizes are small, campus is a nice medium size. I love the downtown scene as well.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety on campus is great and the police is a significant presence on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I believe that the school does a pretty awesome job when it comes to the safety of the students.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for the summer when I first graduated high school and I thought it was great just having the chance to live there.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't really know a lot about Greek life so I don't know much about them but when I do see them on campus or have class with one or two they are the same as everyone else. They aren't rude and they treat people all the same.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school experience so far has been very exciting thus far. My school is so unique to me because its located in a more urban area of Detroit, Michigan but there is a huge range of diversity and its always nice to meet people who aren't like you and who have different views on schooling and just life period. If I could choose a school all over again I would most definitely choose Wayne State University again.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't really pay to much attention to the athletics because I'm to focused on my schooling.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus, but a lot of people accept it.

Health & Safety: It's very important to walk with a group of friends if your going to class or your car because you never know whats going to happen.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: If I lived far away from school I would live on campus. By talking to my friends they like living on campus because they interact with different roommates and get the experience of living away from their parents.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at my school is alright. I'm not a huge fan of it so I'm not all that sure.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall at Wayne State, the classes for my major are worth it. I enjoy going to my classes because I'm learning something towards my degree.

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.
