    Great for these types of students

    For people who want a good college experience in a small town with a larger town just over the hill. Small and friendly town with main amenities. Very easy to make new and lasting friends.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep the lists of extracurricular activities up. Take the ACT and try your hardest to do a good job on it.

    Great for these types of students

    WSC is a great college for students who prefer small class sizes where the professors know each of their students names. The student population is small enough to walk across campus and meet people you know, but big enough to meet someone new each day. Also, students can walk to classes because all the buildings are close.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should do the best they can on the ACT and their school work. It will help make great study habits for while in college.

    Bang for the buck

    WSC provides a quality education at a low price.

    Am enjoying being here

    There are always activities for students to participate in. The school organizations provide ways to meet new friends.

    Am learning a lot

    Wayne State College helps find careers for students with their general education program. Students receive a well rounded education as they take courses in science, art, math, and business.

    Great for these types of students

    Teachers, writers, artists, and anyone involved in the humanities; people willing to stretch beyond their bounds and get to know everyone, including their professors. Those who are willing to work for what they want, accept responsibility, and have fun all the same time will excel here.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get out of the dorm and join as many groups as you can that interest you, provided you don't overload yourself to the point of only stressing about them. Sit next to new people as often as possible-- say hello and get to know everyone. Seize every opportunity. When you've been studying for 10 hours straight, take someone's offer to go watch Iron Man or Inception at midnight in a dorm room.

    Bang for the buck

    Even in these tough economic times, the only college names that seem to appear over and over again in conversations are east-coast institutions such as Harvard and Yale. These are perfectly fine, especially for doctors and lawyers, but for teachers and students of the humanities who prefer something that suits their major more and is incredibly affordable, WSC really is the best-kept secret of Nebraska.

    Am enjoying being here

    Something's always going on at WSC, whether a holiday party involving going to see the supposed ghosts lurking in Ley theather or a late-night Dark Knight party during finals season, or a both hilarious and thought-provoking discussion with several professors. In one day, a student can have a fascinating in-class conversation, go to one of the free movies offered on campus, attend (or start!) a club perfectly tailored to their interests, and hang out with friends while doing homework. WSC is both enjoyable and satisfying.

    Am learning a lot

    Whether in the classroom or at the poetry or fiction printing press, painting something for art class or acting on the stage, there's always both in-class knowledge and hands-one experience to be found at WSC. Plenty of opportunities exist to learn about new subjects, new interests, and new cultures and ideas.

    Did learn a lot

    The computer department is filled with some of the most intelligent and most patient people I have ever met. I love every one of them. They were able to help me get my major sorted out and I don't regret changing majors for a moment.

    Campus Safety

    campus security is always driving around to help. they give every student their number so you can call at any hour if you need help or have hurt yourself. i've even called them to help change my tire. they also help if you lose your keys! also, there is a thing called wildcat wheels, which is sponsered by students and surrounding community. it is a cab service for wayne state students. no matter how late you can call them and they'll come get you and take you back to the dorms. it does cost a bit of money but it's totally worth it if you are a girl who is afraid to walk home alone in the middle of the night. also, they won't tell on you if your state of mind or level of intoxication is questioned. they just want you to get home safely. room doors are locked by your key and thats easily kept safe. the stair doors lock at 8 from the outside so that nobody can get in. the front doors also lock at 8 so that nobody except who lives there can get in, you have a key to those doors. every person who doesn't live in the dorm has to be checked in after 8 so no creepers can come waltzing into the building. it's all kept really safe.

    Greek Life

    there are two main sororities and two fraternities here on campus. they are both nice and somewhat affordable. socials are a must for greek life and they dress nice every monday. there is also a greek society for english majors, accounting majors, and an honors greek society offered here.

    Clubs and Activities

    there are so many clubs. there is a club for every student. even a wii bowling intramural club with actual tournaments! some of the clubs include: biology club, sadd, w.r.i.t.e.s club, health science club, science fiction and fantasy club, rotaract club, fashion club, christian crusade, circle k club, and many sports teams and intrumural sports teams. there truly is a club for every person here, promise.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    a really special place on campus is the willow bowl. it's this beautiful open arena, outside near a copse of trees. there are stairs and seats and a stage made out of stone. graduation is held there if the weather permits. i've even seen quite a few of the neighborhood citizens hold weddings there because it's such a pretty spot. a wierd tradition wayne state has is a campus wide game called zombies vs. humans. in the game, everyone on campus participates and some are designated zombies and others are humans. simply stated, the zombies catch the humans and eat them, which turns them into zombies, and the humans shoot the zombies with modified nerf guns, which stuns them so they can get away. the zombies die if they don't catch so many humans in so many days. the last team standing wins a prize and the last human alive wins a prize. it's a lot of fun and is amazing to see what an entire student body can have fun doing. :)

    Bang for the buck

    wayne state college is really affordable. compared to surrounding universities and private colleges it is the cheapest. they also have a lot of scholarship opportunities for freshman, transfer, and current students that help a lot. they work in collaboration with the board of trustees scholarship which is full tuition, the nihardt scholarship which offers full tuition and board, and the rhop scholarship which offers full tuition and entrance into unmc for prospective med students.

    What to do for fun

    wayne is a pretty small town so most people wouldnt think there is much to do for fun. it's a dry campus so there isn't many parties. there is a really cool movie theater in town that just opened, it shows movies for only four dollars. really cheap is really good! :) on campus there is a lot to do also. there are a lot of clubs and activities to join that have socials and a lot of sororities and fraternities that have socials. there is also a christian group on campus that offers many fun things, like root beer keggers and stuff. the student activities board hosts a lot of free activities all over campus. these include air brush tattoos, bull riding contests, wax molds of body parts, make your own snow globes and many many more. they also host free movies once a month in the ramsey theater. so far this year they've shown pirates of the carribean 4, harry potter 8, horrible bosses, footloose, puss in boots, the hangover 2, and a few others. the football games are free to students and so much fun to watch.

    Food and Dining

    the upper cafeteria has amazing choices. they have a theme bar, a sandwich bar, a salad bar, a grill, and a pasta and pizza place. and and ice cream and desert bar. the choices really are almost endless. and the food isn't the gross, pre-prepared stuff that high schools serve you. it's fresh and really good. also, if you don't like whatever is on the menu upstairs their is a downstairs cafeteria that takes the meal plan. downstairs, they have an epic grill, and a pizza place, a sandwhich bar and even a taco bell. it's really cool having a taco bell that works off your meal plan! also there is a place in the library called jitters. there they sell starbucks coffee and slushies and meals to go if you are in a hurry. they also have candy and many other items that can be taken off your meal card. there is so many choices!

    Dorm Life

    dorm life here is great. all of the dorms i've been in are good for their own reasons. pile hall has been newly renovated in fall of 2011, so it's brand new. bowen hall has really private restrooms and a lot of closet space! also the lobby is split into half floors so you can socialize with many more people including the opposite genders. berry hall, morey hall, and terrace hall have larger rooms that gives you the offer to loft your beds so that you have more floor space. and niehardt hall and anderson hall are really quiet dorms. if you like peace and quite and study time those are the dorms for you. there are dorms for all personality types. it's great!

    Academic Rigor

    the classes are tough but the teachers are fair. i'm in the pre-medicine program at wayne state and it is difficult, they make sure you know what you need to. however, the teachers always have office hours if you need help and the campus offers free tutoring sessions for most subjects. the classes are small sized so it's easy to learn. they want you to do well.

    Tips for prospective students

    if you're going to pick a dorm they are all really decent. the best one's are pile hall, because it's brand new and has never had students in it, or bowen hall because it has the best bathrooms and elevators and air conditioning. the other dorms all have sinks in the rooms but don't have air conditioning and central heating. stay away from morey hall! it's the worst dorm here.

    In three sentences

    the best ever!

    Clubs and Activities

    There are over 100 clubs on campus! Many of which have been started for students, by students. From archery, International club, Greek life, Intramurals, rugby, German club, Sci-Fi Club, Vogue Fashion club, Art club, Christian groups/clubs, Freethinkers, and many more! Not finding what you're looking for? Start one. There are tons of people willing to help you get started on bringing together people of shared passions and getting the word out!

    Great for these types of students

    Opportunists, dreamers, travelers, and intellectuals....wanting the whole package for a low, reasonable price.

    Bang for the buck

    Probably one of the best things about this school, is it's price tag. Affordable and your penny does go a long way. Plus, what sounds better to broke college students than FREE admission to athletic events, movies premiers on campus, dances and live shows, and the wide selection of FOOD available at those events...or whenever they just feel like giving it out.

    What to do for fun

    In all honesty the TOWN of Wayne is not the most exciting place on the map. That is why Wayne State always holds free events on campus like Zombie Apocalypse or hypnotist/comedian shows , Country Night at Riley's (night of dancing away Footloose-style), The Majestic movie theatre (Three spankin' dollars a ticket!), and free admission to all its athletic events.

    Food and Dining

    Upper GAG and Lower GAG. Despite the name, the food is actually pretty swell. Upper GAG is more of a buffet style dining area, where everything from Chinese, Italian, sandwiches, deserts and salads are offered in a relaxed setting. Whereas the Lower GAG, includes sandwiches, Taco Bell, Italian, Burgers and Ready-to-eat meals for the busy student on the go! Warning: It may sound like quite the abundance, but after a while you may get bored of the same things everyday.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms range from I-can-manage-but-I'm-definately-picking-elsewhere--next-year all the way to the newly-renovated-and-smelling-like-an-apple-orchard. All dorms hold socials every now and then, social aspect depends on the people and dorm you're in (which can range from wild-and-free colleagues to chill-and-focused-on-my-studies colleagues) and free food is usually a given.

    Academic Rigor

    The class sizes range from about 10-30 students per class, instead of a lecture hall of over 200 students. This is such a huge advantage because you are able to find that personal one-on-one time with your professors to help you get the extra help you deserve. Most professors on campus are extremely dedicated and respond to you immediately. Homework isn't too bad, and class isn't just a place to learn the intended course of study, but so much more beyond that! Study Abroad is offered all the time on campus for affordable prices, so don't be surprised if your next class is in the gorgeous outskirts of Santorini, Greece. Honors program is available and free tutoring services are also offered.

    Tips for prospective students

    Wayne State is big on one thing: OPPORTUNITY. You've got hopes and dreams? Want to start your own club? Travel the world? Make a difference? Create long-lasting friendships? Immerse yourself in the adrenaline-rush of athletics? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. Wayne State can make it happen. Small in size, it's BIG on helping students achieve their academic endeavors, as well as reaching for the stars and beyond. With it's dedicated professors and friendly atmosphere, making that leap is closer than you think.

    In three sentences

    Imagine your Goldilocks in the story of the Three Bears: Wayne State...is not too big, not too small, you're not lost at sea with over 10,000 students, neither is it a ghost town, homework is not tortuously overwhelming, neither is it baby's-first-steps easy, class length isn't forever-and-ever after, teachers aren't too over-the-top dictator strict, neither are they lazy or careless.....Wayne State is juuuusst right.

    What to do for fun

    depends what you're into, there are a bunch of clubs for almost everything. there are sports all year, of course, and there are intramural sports for those of us who are natural born athletes. there are always people in the library, hanging out at the coffee shop, studying, or messing around on computers.

    Food and Dining

    the cafeteria, or as students call it - the gag, is alright. the lower gag has taco bell, pizza, different sandwiches and subs, a salad bar, and they have a menu for a lot of fried foods. the upper gag is more of a cafeteria and has a set cost for all you can eat.

    Dorm Life

    i do not live in a dorm but i've heard good things. there are a about 5 dorms on campus, i believe, each seems to have a different vibe.

    Academic Rigor

    of course it depends on this class you're taking. most of the liberal arts and humanities classes are difficult but definitely not horrible. the science and math classes are a bit harder, at least the ones i've had. the science program at wayne is wonderful, they really make you work and apply critical thinking.

    Tips for prospective students

    immerse yourself. try a bunch of different classes, i was surprised at how many classes are offered. try to get your textbooks early, a lot of times the bookstore either runs out quickly or they don't order enough.

    In three sentences

    the professors are amazing, everyone i've had is helpful and loves their job. there are so many activities on campus; from different clubs, sports, intramural sports, and events that students put on.

    i have heard tons of awful things, but in my four years here i have never once felt threatened.

    i know that there are a couple on campus for males and females to join, but i don't know much about the groups.

    there are far too many to count. one of the more unique ones is the sci-fi club which puts on a killer haunted house every year. tons of sports teams and activities to be involved in.

    someone who like to feel connected would love wsc. there is always something going on and you get to meet people from all over.

    What to do for fun

    there is always something going on. sporting events, theatrical performances, art showings, student activities, etc.

    Food and Dining

    wsc has 3 major dinning options. a full cafeteria, a fast food cafeteria when the actual cafeteria isn't open, and jitters, the library coffee shop.

    Dorm Life

    some love it. some hate it. you are part of the community of wsc and wayne, america no matter where you live.

    Academic Rigor

    how tough classes are depends on your major and what you are willing to put into it.

    Tips for prospective students

    realize, it's a small school. make sure your major/minor is available. if it's not don't shy away. the wayne state staff make great advisers, and will help point you in the right direction.

    In three sentences

    wayne is a great small town state college. your teachers know you and are willing to go out of their way to help their students. you really feel part of the community.

    The campus security is exceptional here. They are always around to help if you need something or lock your keys in your car.

    Clubs and Activities

    If you cant find a club that you want, the dean of the college will allow you to create your own group club!!!

    Great for these types of students

    Students who want a small town atmosphere with tons of friendly people and professors.

    Bang for the buck

    It is really cheap for such a great education.

    What to do for fun

    There are tons of things to do for fun here at Wayne State. If you are a sport buf, there are home games weekly including the exciting rugby teams. There are like 70 academic groups on campus that you can become involved in also. Like i said above, the recreation center is where most students spend their free time. they can play basketball, workout, swim, lift wieghts, play raquetball, join intermural teams, and so much more.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria food is exceptional. They have one of the largest varieties of food that i have ever seen. Just picture all of the great buffet restuarants that you have eaten at, all clustered into one cafeteria. The cafeteria also has healthy alternatives including a large salad and vegetable bar.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life here at Wayne State College is great. I have met almost every single person on my floor because most people leave their doors open and welcome visitors. The dorm halls also have socials weekly and those become great places to pick up chicks.

    Academic Rigor

    You really have to stay on top of your studies because it is easy to get distracted with all the activities going on around campus. Most classes have monthly tests, so it is nothing the average college student cant handle.

    Tips for prospective students

    Here at Wayne, it is easy to maintain great social connections while gaining a great education. As long as you don't skip class and attend the lectures, there is no way that you wont succeed.

    In three sentences

    Wayne State College is a student friendly campus with tons of chances to become involved and learn almost everything there is to think of. We have a great math and science department, an outstanding business department and one of the nations best education programs. In your free time when you have nothing to do, the recreation center here has tons of activities that all students can partake in.

    Not so much, a few things are cheaper but even the dollar store is overpriced.

    What to do for fun

    There are the sporting events and Majestic Theatre in town. Anything else is outside the town limits.

    Food and Dining

    The gag has the same things every day and it makes my stomach turn. Have not eaten there for about two years now.

    Dorm Life

    Never actually lived in a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    It all depends on the major but the teachers actually want to help you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you have a car or a friend who does have a car. It will help you immensely in the long run.

    In three sentences

    Wayne State is a great college. The only bad thing is the town is about 2 miles by two miles and does not have very much of anything you need in town. It would be a better atmosphere for college life if there was more variety in the shops and food choices.

    Great school for your money. You get a great education for a rather cheap rate. There are also scholarship opportunities as well to help pay for your education.

    What to do for fun

    Wayne does have a movie theater, bowling alley, etc. It is a smaller town so doesn't have everything the city would have. There is always activities, clubs & whatever else going on as well, so there is plenty to do.

    Food and Dining

    Food is fine, better than some other colleges. Still doesn't compare to home cooking.

    Dorm Life

    Never lived in the dorms, so I can't say how dorm life is.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes can be tough, but can be passed as long as you take the time to study. Really the academic rigor is just about right, not so tough that you can't pass the class but not so easy that you'll be bored & wasting your time & money not learning anything.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips are for more than just WSC students & are mainly common sense. Go to class, study, & ask questions (both in & out of class). This is really what most professors are looking for, & will put you far ahead of the rest. Also, get involved on campus, in the community & anywhere else you possibly can. It will make the experience that much more enjoyable & will look great to employers.

    In three sentences

    Wayne State College is a great school to go to. It's probably considered a smaller school compared to some, but this allows for more personalized learning, greater access to your advisers & professors, & a friendly atmosphere. WSC also offers a variety of majors, which are relatively inexpensive to gain degrees in.

    There is a number you can call at anytime, day or night, and they will immediately show up and offer any help. Also, if you just want a ride from the parking lot to your dorm, call and they'll drive you there! They are very helpful. The campus is very safe and people are always looking out for you.

    Greek Life

    We have two Sororities and one Fraternity. They are often involved in campus activities and fundraising.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a club and an activity for anyone and everyone! You can even start one yourself if you feel so inclined! Just look and ask around and people will be more than willing to point you in the right direction!

    Great for these types of students

    If you love friendly people, small town (but doesn't feel like it), are going into education, and want a very good education for very little money.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is the famous Wayne Chicken Show every year held a couple of weeks before school starts. People from all over the country and world come and visit! There's also the Willow Bowl, which is currently under construction, but it is said to be haunted and is very fun to go visit at night!

    Bang for the buck

    You get SO much out of Wayne State College, and it's incredibly inexpensive! The classes are real, your education is very impressive, and you still get that full college experience you would at any other big college. It's hard to tell you're even at a small school! I promise!

    What to do for fun

    There are always signs up everywhere with things to do on campus. There is Cru and the Newman Center, Zombie campus-wide games, comedians, and even a ton of bands come and play. They also show movies in the big theater on campus so everyone who wants to, can come watch it for free! There are also a couple of bigger cities near Wayne that have a lot of shopping you can do and more places to eat out, and the farthest you'll drive is 45 minutes to get there. Perfect for the weekend!

    The food was actually pretty good considering I ate it all year. Of course some of it got sick after awhile just because you saw and ate it for eight months straight, but it was good. They have a ton of drink selections and they are always mixing up the food. Wayne even has a lower cafeteria you can use for a quieter meal and for a different selection than upstairs. The upper dining room can get crowded at times but it just depends on when you eat lunch. You learn to know the busy days and the slow days as you enter the semester.

    Dorm Life

    You really need to get involved with activities your dorm holds, especially in the beginning of the year. The Resident Assistants (RA's) are extremely friendly, though, and so are your fellow hall/dorm mates! Everyone got along and the rooms were very nice and big compared to other college's I visited.

    Academic Rigor

    They definitely take schooling seriously and push you to the limits, but in the best way possible. They help you learn so much about your major and they are very flexible with student's schedules and the maximum load of the class. They have guidelines, but a student's input is always heard! They hire very educated professors for every class you take and the professors are always willing to answer questions and discuss what is important to the students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Absolutely consider this college! Especially if you are going into education. I put it on the back burner and wasn't even going to look at it until a couple of my friends convinced me to, and boy am I glad I did! It was absolutely perfect for me and the people are so friendly! Some tips are to get a tour not on a huge group day, but rather on your own and with a student there, it will be much more personal and real. Also, eat the cafeteria food! This is for any college you visit. Ask to visit Berry Hall and Morey as well, for they are mostly Freshman dorms. You don't want to visit other upperclassmen dorms and then be disappointed when you're not put in them. Also, get to know your professors. At a small school like this they will remember your first name and if you ever have any questions or need an assignment pushed back, they will most likely listen and you will probably be heard!

    In three sentences

    I would rate Wayne State College a 9 out of 10. It is a small college but you still very much get the full college experience.

    We have a place called the rocks and they are a whole bunch of big rocks to sit on and during the summer they have poetry readings anyone is invited to.

    Bang for the buck

    You get more one on one student teacher time because of the small classes. Food areas have a buffet so more food for your money with no price difference it's included if you stay on campus in your tuition.

    What to do for fun

    Greek Life

    Their is only two sororitys on campus which neither have a house. Their is one for boys which does have a house

    What to do for fun

    Their is a bar in town that has square dancing, line dancing ect on wednesday nights. Go! But make sure to bring your cow boy boots.

    Food and Dining

    The dining is not as bad as most people make it out to be. Although the food may become a bit repetitive. Make sure to check the hours that the lower cafeteria are open because that is the best way to switch up what you eat.

    Dorm Life

    Make sure to bring a fan because most of the underclassmen dorms do not hair hair conditioning. Make sure to bring curtains because otherwise the room ends up looking like a hospital. Read the posters hanging up all over the halls, it will give you many ideas as for what to do with your 'hall' or just around campus in general.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors really do love the subjects that they teach. Many will show you 'tough love' but are always their during office hours. Their is also free tutoring available to all students.

    In three sentences

    Wayne is an excellent college with very caring professors. Although the campus is small, their is always something to do on campus. The only downside is it it in a small town of less then 10,000 which is hard to adjust to.

    What to do for fun

    There isn't much to do for fun in Wayne except for Wednesdays. Wednesdays offer country night at Riley's, a local bar.

    Food and Dining

    The food is always the same and not always good.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are small and out of date, but they are nice in the sense that they give you a place to live.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics are definitely challenging. There are some easy and some to really test your knowledge and show you how to learn all the information.

    Tips for prospective students

    Once you get into college, make sure you are prepared to study. This definitely isn't high school anymore, and after your first test, you will definitely realize this.

    In three sentences

    Wayne State College has a beautiful campus with wonderful professors who genuinely care about their students. I would rate WSC a 9.5 out of 10. The only thing I would dock them for would be the food; it tends to be all the same.

    Country night every Wednesday at a local bar. The cafeteria being called the GAG.

    Bang for the buck

    I believe with all the things available to us, we get the most bang for the buck. It's a lot cheaper than a big university.

    What to do for fun

    SAB (Student Activities Board) organizes monthly free modern movies. We have hypnotists, comedians, and bands that come and you get to attend for free! Around town, we have Wednesday Country themed nights, and a bowling alley. In the student center you can play pool, and ping-pong.

    Food and Dining

    Food is great. In Wayne we call the cafeteria the GAG, and the stores downstairs lower-GAG. The cafeteria is all you can eat. They have steak nights, and they cook themed foods on certain days. The lower GAG is grab-n'-go foods already made up, and you just grab and go.

    Dorm Life

    The locations of the dorms enable you to get anywhere you need to in less than five minutes. There is wifi, kitchens, and lounge areas on every floor. Residence Buildings like to schedule monthly get togethers to encourage fun.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes are really challenging, but that is what college is supposed to do. Other classes are pretty swift, and don't require hours of homework. Over all the classes balance each other out. Teachers are all fantastic!

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't let the size steer you away, small is better because you get to know everyone, and that makes making friends easier. Plenty of parking spots (and cheap parking stickers). And housing is pretty nice, plenty of hot water, and you can find a space for anything.

    In three sentences

    Get around entire town in less than five minutes. Friendliest people in the world live here. Everyone has equal opportunities.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is well lit, and there isn't anyone here that is going to hurt you. But if you don't feel safe, campus security can easily be contacted by calling them or pushing a button on a pole in the parking lots. They will escort you anywhere on campus.

    Greek Life

    I personally am not a part of a fraternity, but from what I know and see they enjoy it. If you're interested in joining a fraternity or sorority at Wayne i would encourage it.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are countless clubs and activities on campus. You can join any of them or even create your own.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for anyone. Especially science majors and education majors. The science building just got a huge renewal and it's awesome. Wayne is also one of the best education schools in the state.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The most unusual location on campus is right in front of the library. There are three benches spread out in a circle formation and when you stand in the middle and talk you can hear your echo. As for traditions you have the typical fraternity and sorority traditions along with SAB (Student Activities Board) traditions. SAB puts on movies, talent shows and things like that all year. It's a ton of fun.

    Wayne isn't too expensive, and it's worth every penny. I feel like I've gained so much just from being here. Not only have my academic skills improved, but my whole life has changed.

    Food and Dining

    Chartwells does an awesome job cooking for the students. You will never leave the Upper or Lower cafeteria hungry.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are awesome. They may be small, but they aren't too bad. The people in the dorms are even better. Your RA will always be there to help with any issues. I 100% suggest living in the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Wayne is not too difficult. The teachers are always there to help you, and they understand that college is difficult. I would suggest to be ready to study more than you have before.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are not extremely difficult but they are semi difficult. If students decide to not study the classes may seem hard but if students are tedious in their studies the classes seem easier.

    Tips for prospective students

    One major tip for prospective students would be to not slack off your first semester. Even though you are away from home, and feel free you should not slack off.

    Wayne is so friendly that you never feel home sick. I live in Bowen and it is one of the best dorms to live in due to all the activities that go on in it. Campus has a lot of new equipment and recent technology that you feel so outdated when you come because how cool all of it is.
