Come on over — we’d love to show you around! We offer individual walking tours to students and their families, as well as groups of six or more people. A current WSU student will lead your tour and give you an insider’s look at campus and academic life. Your Warrior Guide will answer any questions you have about Wayne State, and an admission counselor will talk about what it takes to be admitted to the university.
Campus Walking Tours
Your time on campus will start with a short informational session led by an admission counselor who will share information about the admissions process and academic programs. Then a current student will lead you on a guided walking tour to visit places such as the Student Center Building, Recreation and Fitness Center, Undergraduate Library, residence halls, and classrooms. Tours depart from the Welcome Center and last approximately 90 minutes. Visitor parking is available in Structure 6 and costs a maximum of $10 per day — both cash and credit/debit cards are accepted.
Group Walking Tours
Wayne State offers tours for groups of six or more people, middle school aged and up. To begin scheduling your group’s visit, submit your request at least two weeks in advance. The Campus Tour Coordinator will follow up with you to confirm your tour and assist in making arrangements to best fit your needs. All group tours must have one adult chaperone for every twenty students. Chaperones are required to accompany the group at all times.
Campus tours are led by Warrior Guides who are current WSU students. Groups will visit places such as our Student Center Building, Recreation and Fitness Center, Undergraduate Library, classrooms, and residence halls. Tours last approximately 90 minutes.
Day in the Life of a Warrior
Wayne State’s Day in the Life of a Warrior program gives prospective students the opportunity to try campus on for size. Current Wayne State students lead detailed tours that include a look inside residence halls and classrooms, where attendees can meet professors and ask questions.
Scheduled from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., the event features targeted tours based on each student’s program of interest, including the chance to experience actual lectures or classroom activities. Students enjoy lunch at the newly renovated Towers Café, and those interested in the Irvin D. Reid Honors College have the option of attending a presentation about the prestigious program.
On the same day, family members are invited to a special parent session featuring presentations on financial aid, campus safety and what to expect as a member of the Wayne State community.
