Spring/Summer Tuition Discount program, housing discount to continue

As Wayne State continues to focus on student success, the university has announced it will continue its popular tuition discount program that saves eligible undergraduate students 30 percent on tuition and housing costs for 2017 spring and summer semester courses. The Spring/Summer Tuition Break program, launched in 2015, was designed to help students complete their degrees faster, while delivering direct tuition savings. More than 3,000 students took advantage of the program last year, up 14 percent from the program’s introductory year, and its continued growth is expected.

Research Warriors connects students, faculty with research interests  

Many undergraduate students are interested in research opportunities but not sure where or how to start. Research Warriors, a new student organization on campus, hopes to help all WSU students kick-start their research experience. The group offers students writing workshops, social events and the opportunity to connect with faculty mentors through networking events and lab tours. 

Biomedical startup EnBiologics puts trio of students on entrepreneurial fast track  

Sean Carroll, Ramy Habib and Gregory Apers didn’t envision an entrepreneurial career path for themselves two years ago when they met through a clinical engineering internship at Beaumont Hospital. However, most engineers are fundamentally problem solvers, and the notion that “there has to be a better way” often resonates deeper than a common catchphrase. What began with a momentary observation in an intensive care unit has blossomed into a startup called EnBiologics, for which the Wayne State biomedical engineering graduate students received the On the Mark award at the DTX Launch Detroit 2016 Showcase at TechTown. The trio was subsequently invited to TechTown’s Business Incubation Center.
