2018 Warrior's College Experience Residential Camp

Are you ready for college? Have thoughts of a profession in Health Care or in a STEM field?  Want to be challenged, meet new people and have fun?  If you answered yes to any of these, then the WSU C2 Pipeline Warriors College Experience is for you!

Participants of this busy 11 day experience will get a sense of what college life is like.  They will live and eat in dorms, and attend classes taught by Wayne State University faculty and staff.  Each day is filled from morning to night with organized programs that are designed to expose you to a variety of things.

Mornings are reserved to prepare students for time and stress management, conflict resolution and improved study skills.  These skills can be immediately applied in high school, but especially when entering college.  In the afternoon, students attend classes which have been modified specifically for this program by Wayne State professors in the areas of nursing, medicine, social work, engineering, dentistry and pharmacy and health sciences. 

In the evenings, students meet with their assigned inter-professional education team (IPE). Each team will receive a challenge, requiring several days of intensive planning and preparation.  At the end of the program, teams will present their work and compete for scholarship money to attend Wayne State University.

Students entering their senior year in the fall will have the opportunity to meet with the Wayne State University Admissions Office.  During this time, representatives will speak about the admissions process and university requirements.  Students that have submitted their SAT/ACT scores and high school will be able to complete and submit their application right on the spot (with a waived application fee)!

There are community service projects, organized recreational activities and a Gala at the end of the program.  There is never a dull moment from the time the students move into their dorm rooms to the time they get picked up from the Gala.  Along the way, they meet new friends, have a better understanding of college life and maybe decide upon a new career.

  • July 23rd through August 2nd, Towers Residence Hall (Midtown Campus)
  • Geared towards students entering their senior year for the 2018 - 2019 school year
  • Students will choose a "track" of their interest and learn more about that speficic career/field 
  • Students will be able to experience firsthand what college is like
  • Students will attend pre-planned activities and sleep overnight in our on campus residential halls
