Woodward & Warren Park Campaign Kick-Off!
Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 6:00pm
Woodbridge Pub

We've heard our students, staff and neighbors loud and clear: You want a great public space at Woodward & Warren Ave. Join Wayne State University today to kick off our crowdfunding campaign to transform a portion of its Woodward and Warren greenspace into an active, family-friendly public park!

With your help, we will add sustainable landscaping, pop-up seating, shade sails and lawn games. We'll also build a WSU Placemaking/Detroit Experience Factory (DXF) satellite kiosk, which will serve as a place where students, employees, residents and visitors can go for information on the city.

Join the campaign kick-off today, Wednesday, September 20, and help get the ball rolling!

Check out the new sheltered bike parking at iBio! These racks are located at Cass Avenue and Amsterdam St. thanks to a generous donation from Brasco International.

The lights and signage are up outside Old Main! 700 LED lights look good in pictures (below), but they’re even more special in person. They’ll be up through the end of January. We hope you stop by to see them shine.

Thank you all again for helping Light Up Campus!

Update! The Office of Economic Development has launched a crowdfunding campaign through Wayne State’s new Warrior Funder platform to raise money to purchase and install holiday lights on campus.

Learn more: warriorfunder.wayne.edu/lightu...

Our goal is to debut the lights in early Dec. and let them shine through the end of Jan.—lighting up campus for Wayne State students and employees, neighborhood residents and businesses, and visitors. Please consider making a donation of $5, $10 or $25 to help us get started towards our goal of $3,000. Donate $50 and you can help decide where the lights should go!

Great idea, Mary! The outdoor seating has seen its last day outside for this season. This could be a great way to utilize the furniture and space in the colder months. We will look into this as an option. Stay tuned!

Construction is now complete at Fountain Court! There is new grass, trees, sidewalks and even the fountain is back in operation. Take care to stay off the grass as it grows roots. There will soon be outdoor seating with electrical outlets installed to facilitate your outdoor work-study needs. Tell us what you think!
