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

Although it is a boring, non-traditional campus that lacks school spirit and social activities, it is also an extremely liberal and diverse campus, with an extremely open-minded atmosphere, and has excellent faculty, and the quality of education is phenomenal.

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

My first piece of advice to students is to pick a school that they really want to go to, and for parents to let them choose a school that they want, not that parents want, or can afford. If you are at a school that was not your first choice, or that you are unhappy with, then it may affect your abilities, and you won't be as happy. I would also advise students to go to the websites of their prospective schools, and get as much information as they can about the academic programs at that school, and to request or download information. It would also be helpful to attend at least one year on-campus, not at home, to get the feel of the dorm life. It is a fun experience, and it also teaches you how to tolerate others, and helps you adjust better to living on your own one day. My most important suggestion, though, like I said earlier would be to choose a school that you really want to go to. This way, you will get the full college experience.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Parking on campus is a nightmare. The main parking structure is full all hours of the day, and it is too easy to get parking tickets by parking on the street. Plus, car theft is the most common crime on campus, so it is hard to find appropriate and available places to park.

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

I would advise students to pick a school based on it's academic standing in accordance to the degree program they want to pursue. Social activities and sporting events are fun, but those do not get you a degree or job. Academic Clubs and Volunteer groups are more important to me because they help make a student well rounded and socially responsible. Also, if you know that you will be tempted to party, pick a school that doesn't have a reputation of being a party school, that way you will be more inclined to stay focused on your school work.

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

I would tell students to make sure the school has good programs for whatever program that they wish to persue a career in. I also would tell the parents to make sure that the cost of the school is in their budget and make sure that the school has good rating and good reviews from other students and parents.

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

I wish I had known how expensive Wayne State education really is.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who isn't ready to spend a lot of their time studying and being academically involved.

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

Wayne State is really diverse. The diversity of the people can teach you so many new and interesting things and may even be helpful if applied to your area of study.

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

The advice I would give to parents and/or students is simple: think and choose for yourself. We all may think we know what's best for our loved ones or friends regarding what college to go to, what to major in, and what activities to take part in, but in reality we only know what's best for ourselves. Because of this, extensive research is very important. With something as important and expensive as a college education, following others educational dreams instead of your own will make for a lousy four years. From my own experience, I found when I followed my own heart I was happier than when I followed the advice of my mother. She may not have been happy at first, but once she saw how happy I was she grew to except my educational decisions.

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

Before coming to Wayne State, I wish I knew I was going to pay an arm and a leg for parking. Honestly, it's really the only major complaint I have.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Wayne State is probably not known for their sports teams, but rather their acedemics. Classes are not easy, and there is alot of work that is needed in order to do good in a class. Wayne is also well known for how diverse it is, people realize on their first day of school how different it is from where they used to go.

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

Going to Wayne State has given me a totally different view of what a college experience is. Truthfully, it isn't the typical college experience. Frats and Sororities don't rule the school. The night life on campus is pretty dead, and there really isn't too much to do other than get your homework done and study. So, when looking at a college for the best college experice, look for not only hearsay, but look into what the college is like during the day and at night. See the kind of people that go there, and the attitude they have about school. Most kids go out of state to a "party" school, waste thousands of dollars and end up coming back with a reality check, a very expensive one, and go to a local university that is just as good as anyother and gain more than what they expected. Don't look at just the name of the school to get a college experience, but look at a school to really get what you want in life after your college days are over. Maybe, a different kind of college experice.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Wayne State is how cultury diverse it is. I've never been around so many different races that get along so well. I'm surprised at how accepting the people are of eachother. Everyone that goes to WSU are very focused on what they want to do in life. It is not a typical college, where everyone is drinking, and people are pressured to do something they don't want to. People think going to Wayne is easy, and that is farthest from the truth. Classes are just as challenging. Overall, its a great school.

Try to stay away from urban universities, especially in economically declining cities

What's unique about your campus?

The medical school. It accepts the highest percentage of people compared to other schools out there. Everything else seems mediocre in comparison.

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

When deciding on the right college and on trying to make the most of your college experience, I think it would help to treat each and every prospective college as a person you are getting to know. From my own experience, each college has its own personality that is well suited to or that agrees/disagrees with different people. In your selection process, you may find that your personality completely clashes with, works well with, or even that it is a perfect match with the personality of the college you have selected. In order to match yourself up with the college that is right for you, there should be a certain amount of 'personal exploration' taken on your part. Take the time to become familiar with a campus you are interested in. The concept of 'place' is very important when deciding on which college to attend because as a large portion of your day may be devoted to school time and being on campus, you want to make sure your as comfortable in your space as possible. Explore the area beyond what is highlighted in the college brochure to help you make the right selection and begin your college adventure.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school, I think, would have to be the short amount of time we have to walk from one class to another if they're a far distance from one another and if they are right after each other.

My school is unique, since I started out in a community college. Wayne State is much bigger.

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

I would say to the parents to let the student make the decision of where they want to go and I would say to the student to go out of sate to college, so that you can take care of business and get it over with.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school are the Couselors that encourage me to keep my head up and give me positive information that I want to hear about graduating.

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

Rankings of universities are important and may play a key role in you decision, but what is even more important is to search for a college/university that fits your needs. You may need a university that feels like a community college, meaning that it's not too big, not too small, but it's just right. Other people look for big universities with hundreds of thousands of people searching for an education just like you. Maybe you want a school that has excellent community involvement programs or a university that holds the sorority/fraternity of your choice. Always plan an on-campus tour so that you can have all the questions that may not have been answered in the pamphlets you recieve. You need to experience what it would feel like for you to be a student at each college/university of your choice. When you decide on the college/university of your choice, make sure that you get involved and have fun. These should be the best 4 years of your live. Enjoy it while it last because before you know it you'll be thrown into the workforce. Be safe and always think smart about your choices.

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

I wish I had know how great of a school Wayne State University is. Many people feel as if it is a university that feels like a community college and only has students that are parents. Wayne State is a great place to learn because you can recieve a world-class education. We have educators from all over the world. Culture is brought into our classrooms everyday.
