Wright State University, located 8 miles northeast of downtown Dayton, Ohio, annually serves more than 13,000 students and offers 255 undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, and professional degree programs through six colleges and three schools. The university also operates a branch campus, Wright State University–Lake Campus, on the shores of Grand Lake St. Marys in Celina, Ohio.
Wright State University was named to honor aviation pioneers Orville and Wilbur Wright, who invented the world's first successful airplane in their Dayton bicycle shop. In fact, the Wright brothers conducted most of their early test flights at Huffman Prairie, just a short drive from our Dayton campus.
