Wayne State’s ‘Thursdays in the D’ program immerses students in Midtown Detroit nightlifeSeptember 6, 2011
The University will host the series of free events every Thursday throughout the fall semester. The program - dubbed Thursdays in the D - is sponsored by the Dean of Students' Office. It will give students an opportunity to party in the streets of old Detroit at the Detroit Historical Museum, have a date night with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, screen vintage films at the DIA's Detroit Film Theatre and much more.
The Thursdays in the D series begins Sept. 8 at the Majestic Theatre with a free show by Washington, D.C. rapper Wale.
"Midtown is a vital part of the excitement and growth of our city," said David Strauss, Wayne State University dean of students. "Wayne State students have such a unique opportunity with so many great cultural venues in their backyard; we want them to take full advantage of it."
Students need only their One Card identification for access to each week's event. Free shuttles also will be provided.
