    Wayne is know as one of the most affordable colleges in the whole country. That is pretty impressive and really nice for incoming college students. Especially when the facilities are so nice and they offer so many majors, the price is incradiable.

    While the bathrooms may not be the prettiest, this is one of the most affordable non-community colleges in the state. The classes are the small size of an expensive private college for the price of a public school. Wayne State is a state funded college and as a result tuition is significantly cheaper than any of the bigger universities and they have way more scholarships available. If you end up not liking the dorms, you can always live off campus for even cheaper after your freshman year. Another big plus: parking is only $50 for the whole year.

    This college is cheaper than most colleges, however if I could go back in time I would get my generals done at a community college such as Northeast.
