Want to join the Wayne State Insiders?

Hate to break it to you but the month is August and that means it’s time for the Fall semester to start up again.  On the other hand maybe you are like us and can’t wait for campus life to begin.  If you are a positive advocate for Wayne State University, want to spread the work about new events on campus, or are interested in the city life around you then there is an event for you!

On August 21, the Welcome Center will be hosting the  Wayne State Insiders kickoff meeting from 12:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. The Wayne State Insiders consists of alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty and staff.   Anyone wanting to learn more about Wayne State and the Detroit area are welcome to join.

The event will have a 30 minute presentation and a bus tour of Midtown led by Jeanette Pierce of D:hive so mark your calendars and get ready for the upcoming semester.
