News Releases

All Wayne State College news releases and public service announcements are written and released by the College Relations staff. Please keep the College Relations office informed of newsworthy items. It is never too early to tell us your news. You are urged to keep the College Relations director informed about newsworthy events that could generate current or future media attention.  

In order to promote and recognize WSC students but still provide their right to privacy, a News Release Information form must be completed by all students mentioned in each release and returned to the College Relations Office.   Two release forms one for individuals and the other for groups are located on the WSC G drive, as well as on the College Relations page on the WSC Web site.
