"Assistant Dean Felicia Thomas of Student Affairs has been a vital part of my success as a Wayne Law student. Her office is always open for questions about navigating the curriculum and adjusting to challenges, and she has been very receptive to ideas for new programs. It’s great to know that I have a confidante who genuinely shares my concerns and celebrates my success."
