Wayne State Reviews

Sometimes it's a dangerous place to stay despite campus propaganda saying otherwise. Decent nightlife, a good amount of campus activities during week days banker hours.

Otherwise there's pretty much nothing going on during weekends and its a bit of a ghost town.

So far I really enjoy the area that I am living in. I am in the center of Detroit attending a great university. I may just be biased, but I love the city of Detroit and always have. It may have a negative history when it comes to education, homelessness, and crime but I have strived and will continue to strive to find the best in this city. It has more to offer than many people may believe. It is becoming more eccentric and a popular place for students to catch a baseball game, football game, nice dinner, or jog along the river. As more people move into the city, it is becoming a place that is more inviting, safe, and diverse. I am very happy with my decision to move here. It has been nothing but a smooth transition moving from Chicago to Detroit in the past year. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this beautiful city.
I love how mid-town is set up, there never a dull moment. Wayne State is enrich with culture, and diversity. The people there are very friendly. Wayne State is Michigan top three school, and it one of the safest school in Michigan, thanks to all of Wayne State staff, and police officer.
