The City as Teacher

I did my undergraduate degree in a small college town, where my surroundings were not in any way linked to my studies. I did my Master’s at Wayne State University in the heart of midtown, where studying in the city continues to be an interactive experience with my surroundings. My Entrepreneurship class placed us with local businesses, which benefited from our expertise, my creative writing classes are inspired by tales from city life, and my theory classes explore the mysteries of Detroit’s urban landscape. This city inspires and disappoints, and above all makes us think. The city is most certainly the most important academic influence at the University.
