Mark October 26 on your calendar!
Please join us to cap off our year-long celebration of 150 years of opportunity and achievement at Wayne State University.
Alumni, students, friends, faculty and staff will meet on campus beginning at 4:30 p.m. for food, fun, entertainment and more. We’ll hear from President Wilson and others about the impact of Wayne State and how we will continue to be a leading public urban research university for generations to come.
Wayne State is a special place, and we invite everyone to this special gathering that honors our past and looks toward the future.
