Student spotlights

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.
Elyssa Mathy Bachelor of Arts with a dual major in Theatre and Psychology, 2019
The Honors program has really encouraged me to focus on building communities. I was able to obtain a position last year as the peer mentor for the CFPCA's living learning community. There I helped to build a safe and fun community for CFPCA students.

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