Wayne State University is centrally located in Detroit, where there are people from all sorts of ethnic, economic, religious, and sexual backgrounds. Dearborn, a city a few minutes away, has the largest Arabic population in the United States, and WSU has a large Arabic population also. The school has about 35,000 students, so there are plenty of other ethnic backgrounds represented, as well. You will see or meet someone of nearly every imaginable ethnicity or nationality here.
Whatever your background, there is probably a related group or club you can join to help you meet other students with similar backgrounds. Examples include religious groups and the GLBT community. The school embraces this diversity and does things like provide rooms and mats for praying and allow the GLBT community to decorate campus for National Coming Out Day. Also, many international students come to this University because of its research opportunities here. They have the option of living in on-campus housing with their families, which can help ease homesickness since they can make traditional meals and conduct celebrations together. Also, international students can network and meet others who are doing research. Overall, the students here are very tolerant of other cultures and many try to understand and learn about them. It’s a great school for diversity.
