My experience so far at Wayne State College is good. I like the class sizes especially for the upper level classes.Professors remember your name and it's easier to approach them and campus is never crowded. I picked Wayne State College because of it's tuition price and the fact that it's not too far from my home town.Although my college has good attributes it could fix certain areas. Wayne State College could fix their parking issues. It's a daily struggle to find parking. Besides parking funding for the college is decreasing yearly and they are not able to provide us the same service as a university such as hosting public speakers and learning events. Wayne State College is not as diverse as it could be, it would be nice to interact with more diverse people with different views then me.

Wayne State is the perfect college for students who want a four year education at a college with a relatively small amount of students. Class sizes are 30 students at max, and the professors know who you are. Everybody is friendly and willing to help you when needed!
It has a personal vibe to the whole campus. I wouldn't trade my small college for any of my friends large universities. My school is in a small town, so us college kids get very creative when it comes to activities. My school provides me with a lot of free and fun activities thoughout the year and as a student body we come up with traditions and fun things to keep us busy, like bowling nights, library coffee tables to help kids study and keep awake, rallies and dances, we even had a haunted house this year. My school also comes with a lot of free benefits. I got a free flu shot from student health and whenever my computer crashes, student tech comes quickly to help. I love my school and all of the great people I've met so far!
