Walk [Wayne State] Installation!
May 6 2016 at 1:00 PM
Various locations throughout Midtown
Walking weather is here and Walk [Wayne State] is ready to launch! Thanks to everyone who shared ideas for sign locations and destinations. We have 82 signs ready to post, but we need your help. We are looking for volunteers to hit the pavement and attach signs to designated lampposts and street signs throughout Midtown. Signs will be posted through December 2016.  We will be posting signs around the Main and Medical Campuses and neighborhoods around the university between 1-5PM Thursday and Friday, May 5 and 6. Volunteers are needed for any amount of time - just 15 minutes or the full 4 hours! Walk [Wayne State] is one of several placemaking initiatives coordinated by Wayne State's Office of Economic Development. This project aims to direct pedestrians and cyclists to nearby destinations of interest, and encourage walking and biking as sustainable and healthy forms of transportation.

Student Senate Governmental Affairs Committee is hosting a voter education forum series inviting House, Senate, and Congressional candidates to Wayne State to inform students and the community what their position is on various issues and also allowing some Q&A time for specific questions. The purpose of this event is to help reengage voters in the process of making an informed decision when they go to vote.
Midtown Detroit Makeover
May 7 2016 at 8:00 AM
Welcome Center- Registration
On Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 8 a.m. to Noon, Wayne State University and Midtown Detroit, Inc. will partner to make a difference in the Midtown community. The goal is to clean and beautify Midtown one block at a time and make Detroit a more beautiful city in which to live, work, learn and play. Join hundreds of WSU community members as we clean up and revitalize Midtown Detroit. Volunteers will work in teams that will fan out throughout the area to beautify and clean up the Midtown Detroit neighborhood. Buses will shuttle volunteers to clean up locations throughout Midtown, including Brush Park and the Art Center neighborhoods. Volunteer check-in begins at 8 a.m. on the first floor of the WSU Welcome Center. Lunch will be provided at the end of the volunteer day. A limited amount of street parking is available, as well as parking in Structure 6 ($8.00 for visitors; OneCard accepted). Midtown Makeover will take place rain or shine, so please be prepared for the weather. Also, as most of the work involves cleaning, planting or painting, please wear appropriate attire. This includes closed toed shoes, long sleeves and clothing that can get a little dirty.
