Alumnus, 2015

I transferred to Wright State in 2013 and graduated with political science degree in 2015. As a Guardian staffer, I got to travel around the Midwest to cover basketball. My experience at The Guardian helped lead to my current job as a writer and editor for Scripps’ national desk.

Jim Ingram

Alumnus

I came to Wright State University feeling very alone, but made relationships there that have lasted 20+ years going forward. I spent as much time at WWSU and The Guardian as I did in class, but it all worked out for the better. I wouldn't trade those experiences for anything.

Lisa and Eric

Alumni

We met in psychology class in Oelman Hall freshman year 1989. We started dating and married in 1993. Our 24th anniversary is this year. Wright State holds many wonderful memories: parking in K lot, tennis class, people watching on the quad, the Rat, playing euchre in the bike shop, and the friendships we made.

Alumna

After graduating Fairborn Baker HS, I attended Wright State from 1982 to 1987—it was quite an awakening! I gravitated towards liberal arts/mass communications. I received my bachelor's and after traveling the world, I am an author, speaker, and coach, as well as an employee at Wright-Patt.
