Social wellness

Social wellness is the ability to relate to and connect with other people in our world.

Seasonal opportunities

Legacy Leaders

Legacy Leaders will volunteer to lead our incoming class over two days of programming for Orientation Part Two. Legacy Leaders will gain valuable experience in leadership development and networking while earning volunteer hours within the university and officially representing Wayne State in stylish team member apparel. Legacy Leaders must have completed at least 12 credits at Wayne State and have a 2.5 cumulative GPA.

Alternative Spring Break Detroit

During ASBD, we will use a variety of experiences to better understand and enjoy our own backyard. Though volunteering is the essential backbone of the ASBD experience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to learn about Detroit (past and present), dine at various restaurants throughout the city, visit local art galleries and other cultural hot spots, as well as get to know how movers and shakers of non-profit organizations, local government, WSU, urban businesses, and the art community are playing a starring role in city revitalization.
