Drew - 05/15/2024

If you don't care about the college experience, go here. It's cheap, quick, and has the basics. The best thing is you can get to know the professors easier. The food is terrible. There are a bunch of clubs and intermurals to join so you should never be bored. The band is awesome. You can still get a lot out of this college because it has a lot of opportunities and a lot to offer. She's little but mighty.

Autumn - 07/18/2022

It is a decently-sized campus for a 4-year university. It is close-knit and you feel like you know some people, even seeing some on their way to class/etc. The sports events are amazing and lots go. The art culture isn't very big, which is sad for me as an art student, but it is still nice overall. The room and board is surprisingly nice depending on where you stay. The food is "meh" at best (3.5/5 rating); some days it's really bad and some days it's really good (wish they had less carb-heavy options though). Most professors are really nice and understanding to students and will often have office hours or e-mail to contact them with. Wayne is a small town, so there isn't any big stores or anything but it still is nice. The academics here are amazing and the extracurricular activities are fun (but sometimes underwhelm me for my expectations). Overall, 4.5/5 as a rating.

McKenzie - 10/25/2021

I love it so much! While it is small it has so much to offer! The class sizes are perfect and I know lots of people but not everyone on campus. I am involved in lots and keep busy! There are many on-campus jobs to get and I love mine! It fits me perfectly! Other than that I think that the campus president is doing an excellent job of updating the campus to compete with other large schools!

Stephanie - 12/22/2020

I have always enjoyed Wayne. I went to Wayne first out of high school and now again to finish what I had started with my education degree. Wayne is perfect for those smaller class sizes and getting one on one help with your instructors. To them, you aren't just another face. They are there to help you succeed and want you to do good. All you have to do is show up, be attentive in class, and participate and do the work.

  3. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about my school may concern the dormitories. While I have never lived in any of the Wayne State College dorms myself, I have visited them and toured the buildings on different occasions. I have noticed that many of the dormitories on campus could use minor updating and renovating to benefit students. For example, one dormitory in particular does not offer air conditioning, which can be uncomfortable, especially in the summer months. I feel this situation could be addressed in order to allow students a more comfortable environment in which they are to study.

  5. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    Although my school has been offering more online courses each year, many of the courses I need in order to complete my degree are only offered on campus. As a full-time worker, I have had to reduce my course load due to only being able to take one class during the day at a time. My employer has been very flexible with my schedule, as long as I get my 40 hours a week in, but it would be helpful if the entire degree were offered online.

  9. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    The size is very unique to Wayne. It's not a huge school where you're running into someone new every minute of every day, but it's also not teeny tiny where you know every single person. It's still very easy to meet people, and most walks to class include an encounter with a familiar face. However, there are many unfamiliar faces giving you the opportunity to meet more and new people.
