Student Life


The College does not have dormitory facilities. Students wishing to live away from home must arrange their own living accommodations and the College does not assume responsibility for the supervision of such housing.

Social and Cultural Activities

Wayne Community College is interested in developing all students to their potential. The College strives to offer the utmost in academics as well as social and cultural activities to build a well-rounded person. Lectures, cookouts and various exhibits are held periodically during the year.

Student Government Association

The Student Government Association was organized in the Fall of 1963. The purpose of this organization is to promote in each student a personal sense of pride and responsibility in the College and to accept his/her democratic responsibilities as an American citizen.

The Student Government Association shall serve as the official organization conducting the affairs of its members. All curriculum students who pay activity fees are members of the Student Government Association. The Student Government Association shall provide forums for students to engage in out-of-class student development activities and shall serve as direct liaison to the administration of the College.

Wayne Community College encourages students to participate in the institution’s decision-making process. Students are encouraged to participate in the Student Government Association through which the president serves as a non-voting member of the WCC Board of Trustees. In addition, there are several institutional committees where student input is needed and volunteers are sought. Students interested in serving should contact the Student Activities Coordinator.
