What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is not often that a university inspires the creation of a new language component- specifically a verb. No student ever said “ I was Harvading all morning” or “ My professor Emoried in the front of class today”. This is where Wayne State University sets itself apart from the pack. The student body created their own verb to describe a unique phenomena that occurs at this four- year university. It is called being “Wayne Stated”. It refers to a mistake on the behalf of the school that creates a large obstacle and inconvenience for the student. Common examples include late disbursement of financial aid or the promise of a class offering during a specific semester just for it to become unavailable when the time comes. Students of all majors and levels are aware that when you attend Wayne State University there is no way to avoid being “Wayne Stated” at least once before you graduate, but thankfully the university componsets in many ways: campus safety, extensive research opportunities, and new growth. Wayne State University is notorious for its miscommunications that can cost students time and money. They do their best to overcome this by providing other benefits to their students. The notable is the impeccable safety statistics of Wayne State. Detroit is like any other city and suffers from many dangers, but as students transition from the heart of the city to the campus they will immediately feel more at ease. A strong police presence, well- walkways, and safety networks provide students with the necessary precautions. Wayne State University also boasts its status of being a top tier research university. Because the university is so interwoven with Detroit , it has outstanding opportunities for students of all kinds to complete research. This impressive feat lures many different medical professionals to the area which, in turn, provides the highest quality mentors and staff working with Wayne State University students. As a student at WSU, there is the chance to see the city and university developing around you. New growth is coming to the Detroit area and it is a sight to see. The campus is expanding through varying funds. Local donors are advocating for the expansion of this school and believe in its core values. Additionally, businesses alike see the benefits and opportunities that Detroit provides and are flooding into the city. This ensures a healthy local economy and job opportunities for current and graduated students of the university. This outside interest in the area also brings in delicious food, great shopping, and phenomenal entertainment. Detroit and the university are blossoming in recent years and will undoubtedly continue to do so. Being “Wayne Stated” is an undeniable part of the college experience at Wayne State University and is a serious factor to be considered. A college education is a serious investment and this commitment should be to a school that is right for you. By attending Wayne State University, students face inevitable obstacles created by systemic issues in the university itself, but they will take those challenges on at one of the safest campuses in the country surrounded by cutting-edge research and positive growth.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I went on the college tour it was amazing. It made me apply there for my freshman year of college. When I was on the tour I felt extremely safe even without our tour guides. The students that I have met during this tour they were very nice and polite. I would encourage anyone who is planning or going to college and don't know which college to choose from I would definitely recommend Wayne State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wayne state university is s a very diverse campus, the students and staff are from all walks of life. The location being in the heart of Detroit gives wayne an edge, allowing for ample opportunity for students to get involved into the downtown lifestyle; concerts, shops, farmers market, art, sports, theater's and even living. I think that Detroit itself is a heavy commuter based city and a lot off foot based traffic happens, wayne state is no exception. That adds to the collective nature of the student body. Between the academics, the support and the people you meet I'd whole heartedly recommend wayne state to anybody. Whether your outgoing, shy, slow to warm or completely cut off from others I think you'd find a place for yourself at this university. Wayne states mentality is somewhere along the lines of, being there as your #1 education but also remembering you have a life outside the university itself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wayne State is a really good commuter school. If you live on campus there you should be aware that your last dollar will be drained at the school. Everything costs money, laundry, food, Q - line, rentals everything. There is never a lot going on, on campus on the weekends because most people tend to go home on the weekends. However, there are so many opportunities to succeed at Wayne State if you take advantage of everything it has to offer whether it is free tutoring in the academic success center, study groups, TA mentor hours, professor office hours, canvas everything.

I love Wayne state and its a place I would love to go to when I have the chance, Wayne state has been my dream and its a really amazing college with great opportunities and I feel like I could learn a lot if I do end up going there. Wayne has great programs and the program I want to get into is a pre med bio program which they have so its amazing to see how good they are with that program which makes me want to go there even more!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

my overall opinion of Wayne state is that its not too bad and I definitely wouldn't leave now that I'm here, but if I would've known the things about the school I know now I definitely would not have chosen Wayne state. The teachers here are not the best and rate my professor is definitely my best friend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Wayne State University is a overall a great school. They seem pretty chill and I'm doing pretty good in all of my classes. I feel like as long as you pay attention, you should be fine. The food here is straight, but they have certain restaurants here that you can eat from. They taste pretty good and I think the school is doing a good job.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I find that the culture of Wayne State is generally good. The main issue I find is advisor availability. At orientation, I had a lot of unanswered questions. I was redirected to an advisor, but it is hard to set up an appointment with them. Emails can only get across a minimal amount of my concerns. In my opinion, more of my tuition dollars should go towards hiring more advisors. It would make my experience here more enjoyable and would put me at ease. I should be able to set up an appointment and have my questions answered that same week. Overall, the advisor issue is my only concern at Wayne State. There are plenty of activities to get involved with here. Classes are usually smaller and professors are available through office hours. Creating more availability to advisors would make Wayne State the best it can be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, Wayne State is a home away from home kind of school the campus is very diverse and there is always something to do. I always see a lot of international students from different places on campus, so there is always a chance to meet new people. The campus overall is in the heart of downtown Detroit, and to be honest it is surprisingly clean. I don't see much little on campus but then again I also don't pay attention to litter around campus either because there isn't much! Wayne State is always renovating or adding buildings to campus which is great because a lot of the dorms were quite old and they are currently being torn down and made into new structures which is so exciting! There is also the STEM building which is almost done with construction. Fortunately the Anthony Wayne Apartments are finished and there will be a Beyond Juice and Coney Island added to the yummy things to eat on campus!
