3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, it is a good school. I will be an undergraduate freshman this upcoming fall.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While the campus is okay, the availability of some teachers is ridiculously small. The availability of counsellors is also. Kind of rediculous, I didnt even know Ihad a counsellor untill the latter half of my second year. The college is expensive, but it does have opptions for people that cant afford it so its not terrible, I just dont understand why they charge so much and then dont have more people available to help the students with figuring out classes, or filling out scholorships, or why they dont have scholorships to live on campus for people who arent playing sports. Over all its okay, I mean most colleges are the same way, I just wish I was more prepared for it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy attending my university. I've met many great friends and people. There is a large selection of courses. Choosing my own schedule is one of the best things when transitioning from high school to college. I would definitely redo my first semester of college though. I didn't do so hot academically, however I am learning how to do better in my classes now!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience so far is okay. The campus is a nice size and its located near the heart of the city. I wish there was just more to do on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like going to Wayne State. The only annoying this is the drive, I commute and it's annoying going on the highway during busy times.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Don't do to games that often, and I'm not a part of any sports. Still enjoy them though!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Again, I commute, but from what I hear, living off campus can be quite the joy!

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Not too much into partying mainly because I commute and aren't too close with the people who live on campus

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Many different restaurants around town to swing around with friends, and do some studying!

3 College Junior

Administration: Not too many strict areas at Wayne State. You are pretty much free where ever you are.

Scholarships: I received a merit based scholarship and it was very easy to use it to pay for tuition. I didn't have to go the financial aid office even once!

Greek Life: A lot of people complain about frats on the anonymous college app, Yik Yak. But the frats are the ones who throw parties and give out free beer so I don't know why people complain about them. The parties are held in their frat house which is a literal house (think of the frat house in Zac Efron's "Neighbors"). In my opinion, the frats/sororities are good because they do seem to motivate students to get more involved and do better in school. A lot of sweet girls I know are in sororities and they do help out the community. I am not involved in Greek life however.

Party Scene: A lot of partying seems to happen on Thursday nights because a lot of kids who live on campus do go home for the weekend. I'm not much of a party person but there are bashes that happen that involved drinking and the sort.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is the bomb! There are a lot of Mediterranean places (like La Pita and Byblos) nearby for some reason but I am not complaining because the food is delicious and well priced. There are also a lot of hipster places that offer ethnic cuisine (Sy Thai and there's an empanadas place opening up) and vegan/vegetarian options (Seva). I have seen some student discounts but not a lot.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I think it is strict where it needs to be and I think they do that in an effort to diminish any doubts that students and parents might have about living in Detroit. Midtown, where Wayne State is located, is very safe. There are frat houses nearby so I don't think that social lives are hindered much.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Towers Cafe, which most students to go, is nothing special. The food provider is Aramark. . .which also happens to be the food provider for some prisons. Anyway, what the Towers Cafe lacks in terms of taste and freshness, Gold N' Greens makes up for. As a vegetarian, I may be biased though (Gold N' Greens is a vegetarian and kosher place but they have started serving fish). Warrior dollars (money that comes on your meal plan that you can spend at non-cafeteria places) work at Taco Bell, Starbucks, Einstein's. . .Other great campus eateries (these don't take Warrior dollars) are Byblos and La Pita. There's also a potato place nearby but I have not tried it yet.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are relatively new so that's nice but a lot of students still commute. There are a lot of places to eat on campus, not only the two meal plan included cafeterias. I think the location of the dorms in relation to the class buildings is also quite convenient. It's easy to sign up for campus housing and in my opinion, it's worth the money. However, if you are looking for a vibrant social atmosphere, you will not find it here.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus but staying with my friends they were pretty spacious and very clean.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Don't really know much about the Greeks and non-Greeks to be honest.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Good team performance, tons of fan support and school spirit. A lot of the students go to the games to support the team and try to spread the word on upcoming games.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Tons of varieties to choose from for off-campus housing. They're very close near campus. Prices are a lot cheaper than the university dorms.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Wayne State isn't really a party school. Theres barely any parties I hear about and if there are they're not really talked about because they're not all that great.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Great food and lots of choices to choose from. It's always nice to try something new everyday.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
