Be a Community Director
Who is a Wayne State Warrior?
There's no single characteristic that defines a Wayne State Warrior. We're commuters and campus residents, full-time students and working professionals, faculty members and service staff, parents and grandparents, immigrants and athletes.

We offer an immersive educational experience where students work alongside people from different countries, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds in a microcosm of our interconnected world. With the most diverse student body in Michigan (pdf), our students gain a distinct advantage as they prepare to build successful careers in the complex global marketplace.
