3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is waaaayyyyyy cheaper than living on campus but it can be difficult to find buildings to live in with landlords or realtors that will get back to you in a timely manner.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few places to eat off campus, even a few like Detroit One Coney that are open 24/7. The only problem is that almost none of them are within walking distance. Which means you must have a car or convince someone with a car to drive you.

Administration: The administration doesn't seem too interested in breaking up student activities unless they're perceived to be dangerous. Kind of an "ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies" kind of policy.

Party Scene: There are very few parties open to the entire campus. For the most part, you have to know someone to get in. It's good because it helps keep out non-students and other people of questionable ethics but it can be tough when you're told you can't come into a party because you don't directly know someone throwing it.

Scholarships: No additional scholarships have been made available to me within the school, despite the fact that I have incredibly high grades, higher than I had in high school. You'd think a university would want to reward its students for doing well and improving.

Campus Food: Although there are quite a few dining options on campus, their low quality or unreliability completely detract from their convenience. The cafeteria is absolutely awful. The food is either cold, tasteless or simply unappetizing to look at, let alone think about eating.

Campus Housing: Having to swipe to get into the buildings and to get access the elevators and stairwells make me feel really safe. However, the 6 overnight guests a month limit really stinks. I have to actually schedule when I can have friends and family over because of it.

Health & Safety: It's never been an issue. Police are great!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not a huge sports school.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Pretty great, less expensive than the dorms by far.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Pretty nice, housing directors are kind of rough.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing it great! the rooms are nice and each one has a private bathroom. They give you a lot of choices in regards to what kind of room you want. where you want, and how many roommates you want. They are however, very bad at matching good roommates together.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm uncertain because I commute from home!

Administration: I'm uncertain of certain thing because I haven't seen any situations or heard of any that were major or against conduct. I know they're strict on certain things listed above.

Party Scene: Our parties are always crazy fun! They're always in an okay place. Anyone can come, and I think it reflects Wayne State in a positive way.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I filled out the FAFSA, but it took too much to get the loan, so I just said forget it. I'm making it through my second semester, but I'd rather earn scholarships than have to worry about paying money back.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Everything is fine, you just get tired of the same stuff everyday.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
