Wayne State University Reviews
Wayne State has a great security system that makes you feel safe at all times, and not worry about something happening to you while going back to your dorm or apartment. It has areas to hang out in with your friends and meet more people, and even a after hours cafe in case you didn't have time to eat, you always have that option!
In my personal experience I love Wayne State because when I first started I was not far from home and I could go back every weekend. But, I do understand that some people come from farther cities in Michigan or even a different state. Therefore, I think it's good because you have the airport, and train stations not even a half hour away from Wayne State.
