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.

Miranda Fryman


I came to Wright State as a passive student who had no idea what she wanted to do. Luckily, I found a home very quickly and became active in many organizations and groups that have given me amazing opportunities and lifelong relationships.

Tessa Cox


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.

Bruce Heintz


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.
