Student spotlights

Michelle Iqbal Biological Sciences, 2017
Being a student in the Honors college has allowed me to make connections with and work alongside not only my fellow Honors students, but also WSU faculty members and Detroit community leaders to help WSU and Detroit enter a new era of rejuvenation and prosperity.
Kaylani Benson Occupational Therapy, 2020
Since I started at WSU in 2014, I gained a greater appreciation for my city. I have attended schools in Detroit since daycare, but never anywhere far from my home on the west side of the city. Being in midtown in such an incredible experience.

We will create and advance knowledge, prepare a diverse student body to thrive, and positively impact local and global communities.
