Wright State University became an independent institution in 1967 and spent the next 50 years growing into an innovative leader in affordable and accessible education. In 2017, we celebrate the first 50 years and set the course for the next half century.

Sarah Christy


As a freshman, I was placed in leadership positions that none of my friends would have been capable of at schools their size. Wright State has allowed me to grow as a leader in such a short time and I am forever grateful.

Katie Halberg

Staff, Director of Social Engagement

When I began working here in 2007, we were in the midst of the 40th anniversary celebration. Throughout the last decade, I’ve met many fabulous colleagues, become a trailblazer in social media, and completed my master’s degree. My husband and children have also become Raiders! Thank you, Wright State!

Amanda Earnest

Staff, Web Developer/Designer

I have worked as a print and web designer in higher education marketing since 2006. Recently, with limited experience I took a flying leap and dove solely into web development and design. Wright State saw the potential in me when I didn’t. I’m thankful they gave me a chance.
