Wayne State College Reviews

Undergraduate Experience: Some professors do a great job. Others seem interested in retiring. The Career Services Office is excellent. Huge variety of intramurals. Made life long friends here. The administration seemed hard on student centered faculty. Many of my favorite professors moved on and were replaced by adjuncts. Cheering on the rugby team and working on projects with my classmates in the library were my favorite things. Also, class trip helped me network and get summer job. Graduate Program: Unorganized. My advisor was MIA. Online class used a primitive program with almost no interactivity. Part time professors were holding program together. I switched schools despite the costs. No one seemed to care. My credits transferred.

I'm a Brazilian majoring in Graphic Design. This is my first year here and it's been pretty good so far. The staff is so friendly and helpful. I made a lot of friends and the community is nice. It's a small town, but they have a lot of fun activities on campus. Great experience!
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.
