Here are some former and current student testimonials from across the School:
HPOG- "It was fun being a student at Wayne State College, but it is more exciting being a teacher now that I have graduated. Actually, I am still a student because I learn new things everyday. Teaching is a lot of fun. Keep up the good work at WSC in the classroom. I really enjoyed my teachers and I use materials from my Geography and History course work whenever I get the chance."
Jeff Jepsen, Geography and History Education major, Class of 2000
