This year, Wayne State University turned 150 years old. We’ve had a lot to celebrate, including reaching the Pivotal Moments fundraising campaign goal — and learning to spell “sesquicentennial.” But we’re not done yet.

Join us for a day of entertainment, reflection and fun!

4:30 p.m. | Campus Festival
This is a celebration you won’t want to miss, complete with exhibits, games, food, and music and dance performances from current Warriors. This fun event is for our alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of Wayne State.

6 p.m. | Stage program
At this event, hosted by award-winning actress and Wayne State alumna S. Epatha Merkerson, we’ll receive official welcomes, discover what’s in time capsules created for future Warriors, listen to remarks from President M. Roy Wilson, and be entertained by a rousing closing performance.

7 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. | Student Block Party
As the Campus Festival winds down, our students take over for an unforgettable Friday night with music and food galore.
