My name is William Sommerville and I served in the United States Army as a Combat Medic for eight years. In that time I saw many continents and served in 5 countries. I was blessed to have many fine soldiers and battle buddies to serve with along the way. At the end of my second tour, I realized I needed a change. My skill set made my career an easy choice but which school to get me there was the conundrum. Upon speaking with the staff and fellow students, Wayne State University became the clear choice for me. While still deployed in Afghanistan I was setting up a school tour and speaking with school advisors. Matt McLain made the process quit simple. Wayne State has given me the opportunity to make lasting friendships and continue giving back to the community and student body. With the help of the SVO and many other students here, I plan to graduate with a Bachelor in Nursing from Wayne State.
