Adam Smith talks about the ways Wayne State’s clubs, organizations, and people provide support to help students feel connected.
Wayne State is Family
My favorite thing about Wayne State College is the opportunities and the people. We have a lot of groups on campus and organizations for students that cater to a specific group of students. So what I mean by that is, you know, we have, you know, an LGBTQ group, we have, you know, Students of Color group, we have Latinas United. But what's really cool about all those groups is that they're very open and welcoming. And they support anybody that's willing to be a part of that group and share their message. And that's kind of a cool thing that we have here. You know, you may not agree with a message that someone is sending here. But we're all you know, in this together at the end of the day, and we want to make sure that students feel connected in some way, that way, they're successful here.
So I am the president of our Student Senate, which is our student government. I'm also the president of pride, which is our LGBTQ Alliance group on campus. I'm the president of Claws, which is a civic leadership group that kind of bridges the gap between our campus community and our Wayne community, it really helps me refine my leadership and communication skills. I have aspirations to be a lawyer, so you do a lot of communicating a lot of writing. And so being able to practice those skills every day, while I'm here in college-- I think gonna set me up well for the future and prepare me to continue to do so. So I think when I look back at my time here at Wayne State, I want to look back and say that I fought for everyone that I could-- that needed to have a voice because the people here they pushed me to be the best that I can be. You know, they picked me up when I, you know, was going down a wrong path or didn't know what I wanted to do or was, you know, going through something. Because here we want to make sure that you're a part of the family regardless, and families are always there for each other, and that's definitely something I'm going to miss here about Wayne State.
