Success Sessions I & II
Success Sessions are tailored to provide students, parents, and family members with information to support Warriors in the classroom and help build connections at WSU. Students will have the opportunity to attend two separate sessions during the program.
"Speak About It" – Creating a Culture of Consent
Speak About It is a session about consent, power, and holistic health. This presentation includes engaging, entertaining, and emotional discussions, written by a diversity of college students, that will jump start a conversation about identity, bystander intervention, race, ethnicity, mental health, drugs and alcohol, and other social factors about life on campus.
Dinner and Warrior Uproar
Join us for a picnic dinner. Celebrate the beginning of your Wayne State career by decorating your own Warrior bling and participate in fun activities with our Wayne State student athletes.
The Campus Activities Team (CAT) will be sponsoring an evening program. More information coming soon!

New Student Convocation
Convocation is the formal welcome to the university. Parents and family members do not need to RSVP to attend with their new WSU Warrior. The ceremony celebrates the beginning of the class of 2025's academic career, held on the Max. J. Pincus Court in front of the McGregor Memorial Conference Center.
The FestiFall celebration will begin immediately following the ceremony on the Fountain Court area of Gullen Mall. During the event, students will have the opportunity to meet the Dean of their college or school. In addition, various learning communities, hundreds of student organizations, area community organizations, and many campus departments will also be hosting kick-off activities. Lastly, a picnic and refreshments will also be available free for all students and guests.
