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

I would tell them to do whatever they want to do. Have the students themselves choose where they want to go and what they want to study. So many students have parents choosing where they should attend, and what to study and that impacts the students behavior in college

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someeone who does not care about school and or does not study or do their homework

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I do not brag about much. IT is the same as other universities bascially. THe thing the most sticks out i would have to say sis the cultural diversity. There is people from so many different countires, and different races. Also there is an Honors College which gets alot of recognition and that is something to brag about.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wayne State University campus is the ideal size for someone who wants a to attend a university that is not so large, that one will get lost and just become another student. However it is not so small to the point where you begin to feel cramped. Nonetheless, Wayne State University campus size is just right. At Wayne State you are bound to run into someone you know around every corner, however you are also bound to meet a ton of new and diverse people.

Describe the students at your school.

Wayne State University is a very diverse campus with many different races, backgrounds, ages, and social groups. Everyone on campus gets along very well.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

The stereotypes could not be more far away from the truth. In the three years that I have attended Wayne State University I have not been in fear or afraid to walk around campus along. The campus community is very polite and helpful. Also Wayne State University has one of the greatest campus police departments that I have ever seen. The campus police are always visible around campus and go out of their way to be as helpful as they can be.

What are the academics like at your school?

Wayne State University is one of the best learning experiences one can ask for. Wayne State University provides a real life learning experience unlike any others. Because Wayne State is located in an urban city with a rich history, it has alot of extracurricular activites that can be a great learning experience. Likewise Wayne State University has a beautiful campus located in mid-town detroit, which is surrounded by an art museum, a history museum, and a host of businesses unique to detroit such as the Karmonos eye Institues which can, and sometimes is utalized as a source for learning.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Wayne State has an annual concert that it puts on every year. The annual mad anthony concert is a great concert with artists selected by the students perform. Likewise many celebrities and politicians are invited to the campus to speak and interact through Q & A sessions with students.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

That the campus is unsafe because it is located in an urban city.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Wayne State University could best be described as ethnically unique with proportionately high numbers of diverse groups of people all working together on one campus, fulfilling the same goal of educational success while waiting for our next Blue Book exam.

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

My advice to parents as well as students is to do your research. When it comes to choosing a college, be conservative. Think about the cost factor in relation to the degree, which should never be generic. Be specific, have high demands and realistic expectations. You will never want to borrow more than you can afford to pay back; neither in finances such as loans, but academically as well. Although no one can predict the job market, always try to fall back on your interests and goals. Remember to always have a back-up plan just in case the first option doesn't work out to your interests, as they may sometimes do. Finally, I would suggest that after a few decisions are narrowed down, pick the best one and run with it. Have fun, learn lots, be creative, and always appreciate your efforts.

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

I wished that I had known: how to save money rather than have financial need; how to follow a budget and live within my means; when to be leisure and when to study, rather than cramming the night before; to consider my health and diet, excercise more, play sports, eat nutritious meals, leaving soda and coffee behind as well as fast food; how to befriend others more effectively; ; to promote extra-ciricular activites of interest to self and others; but mostly, be friendly to the new students and help familiarize them with the campus and social groups on campus.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Wayne State University is best known for it's law, engineering, and medical/health related programs. These programs have a good reputation and continue to carry them. Wayne State is also known for its involvement in the community. Various groups are always doing something to help the community whether it's meals on wheels or picking up trash. Students also volunteer at local public schools to tutor reading to elementary children.

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

My advice to parents and students about finding the right college is to start looking early in high school. Make several visits to the campus(es) you are really considering and see if they have a program where the student can stay a few days and really learn about the campus from a student's everyday point of view. Ask questions; even if they seem very simple. Advice for the parents: don't force your child to go to a specific school; let them choose. If the parents choose the college, the student won't always be happy about the choice and won't necessarily try to succeed. As for making the most of your college experience, I would say, learn how to balance school and your social life. School is not your entire life and neither is socializing; you need to find a happy medium and stick to it. Remember to have fun, but keep an open mind about learning. Learning in the sense of other cultures, people, and your field of study. Branch out of your comfort zone and network with others! You never know what positive outcomes may occur from it!

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

Wayne State University was really open about all the services and programs they provide. I felt that I was given a lot of information about the school before I started attending. So with that, there really isn't anything I wish I would have known before attending because the school was straight forward.

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

You have to consider what fits good with your lifestyle and what career path you want to take. Wether you are looking for a place with diversity and different nationalities coming togther, or maybe looking to commute to school to save money on living expenses. Always take the opportunites of the free services the college offers for you and engage in extra curriculuar acitivites to make the most of the college experience. Make sure you do not pick a "party" school because that will hurt you in the long run. Focus on your career and figure out if a small Univeristy with smaller classroom with fewer students is best for you.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

People from different backgrounds and cultures hang out together

Consistently rising tuition costs and a relatively high crime rate. Also, many pre-med and pre-law go here because it is cheaper than most major universities and offers a decent reputation.

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

Focus mainly on your academics for at least the first year so that you dont fall behind. Dont worry too much about the social life because it will be there regardless. Create a facebook account and build your friends network starting with the people you encounter in your classes. You may want to look into some sort of student organization during your second year. Dont try to do too much at once and take it one day at a time.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing that I have encountered is having multiple final exams scheduled for one day

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Wayne State is a diverse area in the heart of urban Detroit that offers students the ability to work side by side with the top ranking professionals in their field, and also gives students the oppertunity to learn in a multicultural environment.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Wayne State is best known for their school of medicine, which is located at the largest medical facility in the state of Michigan, the Detroit Medical Center. In my field of music education, Wayne State graduates the second highest number of music educators in the state, compared to Michigan State University. We are also known for working side by side with the top professionals in our field. The location itself also allows a mixture of many different races and cultures, making us the most multicultural school in the state of Michigan.

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

I would tell any person that you need too look at what others say about the colleges you are interested in. Also look and check with people in your field of study about the professors in the particular department you are interested in. As for making the most out of your college experience, you are there to learn, and that should be first and foremost, but having a social life is important as well. Forming study group and exchenging notes with others is a great way to do both. Just make sure that overall, noting stops you from reaching your goal, whatever it may be.
