What Students Are Saying

Everyone is friendly. The professors are fantastic. There is always something to do during the evening on campus.
Colleen from MI
Wayne State University brings the entire package that you'd expect from a big college. I've definitely had some of the most challenging times of my life here despite being here for only a semester so far, but I've also had some of the best times. Staff, teachers, and fellow students alike are all genuinely amazing to be around at this urban research University.
