"TIP really helped me."
“For the last year the T.I.P. program
has helped me tremendously. From the emails everyday loaded with jobs, internships, and scholarships, to the end of the semester dinners that end with a huge basket full of goodies. I am truly thankful that I am in this program. Not only is this program great; but, they genuinely care about our education and the student succeeding in life. And, they are there to talk if you need it, letting you know that you have someone if you feel like you’re alone. Overall, TIP Wayne State has helped me tremendously this year and I’m glad I was chosen to be a part of it.”
