Welcome to a new semester at Wayne State University.
The beginning of the semester is always exciting. I hope these first few weeks of class provide you with numerous opportunities to meet new people, experience our campus and take the next steps in your educational journey. There’s much to do in Midtown, and I hope you’ll take the time to visit the theatres, galleries, shops and restaurants throughout our neighborhood.
