Overall experiences have been positive, and the students say they would come to Wayne State University all over again. Wayne State University is big enough to get away from the community college status, but small enough where your classes are located relatively close together. Even though WSU is a university and has over 30,000 students, you are able to form bonds with your professors and many other students. In general, the people on campus are friendly and are willing help you out with almost anything. Professors, staff, RAs and peer mentors are available to talk to if you ever need help with anything whether it being homesick or you are having problems in a class. The university offers free tutoring and Supplemental Instruction (SI). This is where a previous student took the class and received an A and comes back to "instruct" and explain the material in an easier method of understanding. Often, the SI leader will make up practice tests and some professors use the examples from the practice test on the class exam; this benefits those that go to SI. It is purely optional, but the students have found that it raises grades, on average, by half a grade. There are so many opportunities available on campus and you can get involved as much as you would like. At Wayne State, students learn very quickly that this university is not a party school and holds academics on a very high level; you get your tuition's worth. In addition, WSU is very diverse and as one student said, "the cultural diversity of campus and the metropolitan campus setting has opened me to so many ideas and experiences that I would never have had access to in the small town where I went to high school. I would definitely come here again."
