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.

In my first year as a teacher, I was consistently told that I didn't seem like a first year teacher. The only explanation I have for this is that the ILA program at Wright State prepared me so well, and I will always be grateful for that.

As a student, I’ve been blessed with amazing professors and mentors that have helped me discover my potential, and prepared me well for the workforce. I’ll be leaving Wright State in the spring, but I’ll be connected with these people for the rest of my life.

I came here Spring 2016 as a transfer student after a rough couple semesters in Kentucky. I took a semester off before transferring here to make sure college was right for me, and I'm glad I decided to come to Wright State. I found my home!
