Favorite things about WSC: I absolutely love the people at Wayne State! The faculty and staff members were extremely helpful throughout my experience as a student and continue to be now that I am an employee. Each person at WSC really takes the time to get to know you individually, your needs, and your aspirations! I also love all the opportunities available at WSC. As a student, I was able to choose from more than 100 different clubs and organizations to be involved in. While I chose a select few to be very involved in, I know that each and every one has tons of benefits.

Favorite spot on campus: By far, my favorite place on campus is the cafeteria! Our campus has amazing food and so many options. The upper cafeteria is buffet-style, so you can really eat your heart out, while Cats Corner has tons of choices for a more grab and go experience! Tons of students utilize the dining options at WSC, which means you are guaranteed to see lots of familiar faces and have an absolute blast during meal time!

College search advice: Plan a campus visit to each and every campus you are interested in. It really gives you the chance to experience that campus and find out if it feels like the right fit for you. When you make the match, you’ll know! Also, fill out as many scholarships as possible!

Hobbies: I spend a lot of time hanging out with friends and family, shopping, traveling, organizing EVERYTHING, and sleeping.

Fun fact: I was the fifth and sixth grade spelling bee champion of my school.
