I'm only referring to the downtown location, there's a lot work to be done especially in the financial department, it takes forever for it to process, most of the staff is rude and unprofessional, unorganized, and many professors (at least the ones I had) work hard for their students and adept in their fields but their compensation is quite sad.

I'll admit, I hardly participate in other aspects of the school except for the obvious which is classes, but the TRiO program I hear is quite helpful, and I'm enrolling for the 2017 spring semester.
Review Wayne County Community College
WCCCD, I actually gained my A.A. from the Downriver Campus. Positive things in regards to the campuses, there are a number of them. This is great for the fact that it increases the number of individuals that can attend & it increases the number of class offerings. Each campus has set programs, but some can be taken interchangeably as well as online. As far as food, each campus has vending machines, break areas, as well as Subways. All the professors I had, except maybe 2, were amazing. I would definitely say check ratemyprofessor to be safe. They are great for student events, & the community. The campuses offer a large number of free/cheap programs for the students & local communities. My only complaint, they are currently trying to charge me for tuition and other fees in regards to classes that got cancelled over the summer. So definitely make sure you check your account and stay on top of it. Other than this one problem though I haven't had a problem with them.
I love the staff and the students there. The staff is very helpful. I have gotten help with all of my needs and I am able to succeed in my academics. The teachers are insightful and I am thankful for such a great team of people. A few things that could change are the organization of the school. The school has events and are not very prepared or organized for them, so that could improve.
