We have a lot to celebrate — 150 years’ worth of achievements, to be exact. And we want you to join us.

You’re invited to our Sesquicentennial Celebration kickoff on Friday, Jan. 26, at 2 p.m. in the Community Arts Auditorium. Wear your green and gold gear, and join us to:

  • Smile for our Warrior family photo (snag a seat in the auditorium by 2 p.m.)
  • Share your journey at our WSU Stories booth
  • Test your Wayne State knowledge with trivia
  • Be inspired by a variety of live performances
  • Celebrate the opening of “Wayne State University at 150” at the Walter P. Reuther Library
  • Enjoy birthday cake

We’ll have lots of surprises, so this is a party you won’t want to miss!
