What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love go to Wayne State University, the best thing has to be that I can commute from home and not have to spend extra money. The size of the school is just right. However, if I could change something it would be to have better biology department. when I tell people that I go to WSU they always ask If it is safe. I spend the most time in the P and K Library on campus. I think the most complaints about WSU are that the science department because its not as good as it could be. WSU has so much school spirit and its so nice to be at a school that is so diverse.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like WSU. I like it because it is so different from other colleges in Michigan. It's great because you get to be in the city but the actual campus is small and easy to walk around. One thing that is very annoying is the parking. There are several parking garages and they're not cheap. But I guess parking is bad in every city. When I tell people i go to WSU they think its so cool that i go to school in Detroit, that I'm so tough. It's really funny. Overall i really enjoy going to WSU and I'm happy I chose it.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

The common stereotype at my school is that the majority of students are commuter students. It is true that my school is a commuter university however a fairly large amount of students do live on campus when you consider the size of the student body.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

The most common stereotype at Wayne State University is that the campus is very unsafe for students. This stereotype is true, but only to a point. The Wayne State campus is no different from any other campus because you should always be aware of your safety no matter where you are. There are many sources on campus that provides students with immediate help and campus police are everywhere so you can walk around knowing that help will be there if needed.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise myself to take things easier the first year of college. I have always pushed myself way too hard and taken courses that are so challenging it is sometimes hard to handle along with the transition to college. I would also advise myself not to commute to a school that is an hour away because that takes away from the time that could be used to study. It was also hard to make new friends when you are a commuter so I would definitely advise myself to enjoy a dorm life even if it is expensive. The first year is to explore and learn more about the school rather than to overload myself with courses and activities. It is still very important to keep in touch with the friends and connections from high school as they will be life long companions.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A liberal arts education is a big part of this school. A majority of this school is of a diverse race and I feel that anyone can fit in.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known that the tuition and parking would be so expensive.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back a few years I would force myself to sit and study for the ACT. If I did I would have been able to recieve a scholarship to college which would have made things much easier. Considering I have disabled parents that I am responsible for. I learned that college is all about yourself, people only want themselves to be on top. They can care less about everyone else that is around. I should put my studying before anything but sometimes it is really rough and you need to do just enough to get by. I was a 4.0 student throughout high school and college came a shock to me.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I knew that there were more than 500 students in a biology class. Coming out of high school I found this to be very hard. There was no one on one with the teacher at all. The professor didnt even know thw students names. This is someting I would make younger friends aware of.
