About Us:

“Why I Went to College” is not your average college website.  It is a website featuring current college students, and is geared towards prospective students, current students, and professionals.  The website features a blog, where current students answer questions about their college experiences thus far.  Throughout college, students are given projects and assignments, which showcase the individual’s talent and creativity.  Our majors are all unique to our personalities.  This website ultimately strives to allow University of Detroit Mercy students to place their work on the web and help build networking skills with professionals and businesses.  We hope that visitors leaving the website will feel a connection with the students and walk away and be encouraged to consider their own reasons for going to college.
