Wayne State University Graduate Reviews

25 reviews
Wayne State University gives very personalized attention to their students. Every professor I have had has been able to give me one on one attention. The advisers are very knowledgeable. Once you have picked a program or major, the advisers are tailored to your needs. They are very active to make sure you graduate and are following the proper course work. Without WSU, I would have never been able to have been accepted into my Master's program. I am so thankful for a wonderful school like WSU!

Wayne State University has excellent professors who are providing me a quality education. They are one, of only three colleges in Michigan with a pharmacy program.

The only disappointment is there is no free parking!
Wayne State is a wonderful school where I feel completely safe to be myself and speak my mind. The staff is an array of diverse and wonderful people. Wayne State's campus in Detroit is absolutely stunning in the summer months. There is many activities and restaurants to choose from.
