Discover the D: Detroit as a College Town (Episode 1047)

An episode of Detroit Public Television’s series ‘Discover the D’ visits the Midtown Detroit campus of Wayne State University, presenting Detroit as a college town. Featured are students from the Department of Communication, WSU’s Jazz Big Band, the Opera Workshop in the Schaver Music Recital Hall, the Dance Workshop Company in the Allesee Dance Theatre, members of the fencing team and students in the School of Medicine’s Kado Family Clinical Skills Center. “Our graduate student programs are teaching the scientists of the future,” said Vice Dean for Medical Education Maryjean Schenk. “There are 17 different sports across fall, winter and spring seasons,” said Athletic Director Rob Fournier. “We’re home to the Office for Community Engagement that puts our students into the community because we want them to learn a tradition of service to their community,” said Dean Jerry Herron of the Irvin D. Reid Honors College. “You can’t get this urban experience at any of the other top tier universities in the state of Michigan,” said CFPCA Information Officer David Romas.
