What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
If you plan on attending here come in with an open mindset, ready and willing to have a full load of homework and be prepared to be an adult!
Keyla from Detroit, MI
Be smart about what you do. Walking alone at night where the police don't patrol is a big no-no. Just use your common sense about what's safe and what isn't, and you'll be fine. Wayne State is actually really safe, as it has its own police force, and most of its crime rates are lower than other big Michigan colleges.
Audrey from Ferndale, MI
While in high school prepare yourself by taking harder classes that will provide you with an advantage in college. Don't depend solely on your teacher's, take the initiative to find learning/studying methods that are influential to you.
Kurt from Brownstown, MI
Don't be turned off by the fact that it's in Detroit... Wayne State has its own police force that's patrolling the campus ALL the time. I've seen police officers wandering around by car, segway, and foot at all times of the day. Despite the bad reputation Detroit has received, Midtown (where the campus is located) is clean, well-trafficked, and filled with awesome places to shop, hang out, and eat. If you're commuting I would advise you get a premium parking pass because during the winter it'll be brutal walking three or more blocks between classes. Premium parking costs more, but is closer to the center of campus.
Sydnee from Southfield, MI
Meet and befriend as many people as you possibly can. Especially your professors and counselors. They can only help you and you could end up helping someone in the end. Study one hour for every hour you spend in lecture. Take advantage of every single facility the university has to offer and take away as much as you possibly can. It will help make an incredible resume for your future.
Paige from Dearborn, MI
Study. Study. Study. Always stay on top of your work and you should do very well. The courses are not like high school where you can finish an assignment right before class. Also, go to class. Do not skip!
Christina from Southfield, MI
make sure you check out the entire campus. don't be shy to interact with the current students as well as the professors, you will get a better feel of the school. be sure to go in some of the places to eat also, there are many of them in the area.
Dominique from Detroit, MI
Apply for financial aidx early and make sure you have all your ducks in a row to cute down on stress. Get involved on campus and make Wayne State University your own. GO WARRIORS!
