Yadav was recommended by another international student to attend Wayne State College because of the affordable cost. Rakesh said he is overjoyed that he decided to come to WSC.
“The friendly atmosphere and exciting education have made a difference,” he said. “It hasn’t always been easy adjusting to American culture, but because of the smaller campus size, I can receive the help I need around every corner.”
Yadav said he also enjoys the Recreation Center and how it is accessible to all students. He said he gains new friends often, because everyone knows everyone.
“Everyone knows you, and that is my favorite part about WSC,” he said. “Wayne State College gave me a platform and nice environment to prepare for my future.”
