Student Profiles

Matthew Almazan, Junior

For me, the decision came down to Wright State being the best of both worlds—that is—it has the prospects of a “big university” intertwined with the close community feel of a “small university”.

Emily Bingham, Senior

My decision came down to two things: diversity and money. Wright State has a lot of cultures coming together on one campus. The second reason was money. Wright State offered me the Valedictorian Scholarship and a Trustee’s Scholarship that would cover everything.

Neldys Crespo, Senior

Wright State is full of diversity, with students and teachers from different cultures and backgrounds. What I love about Wright State is the Multicultural center because they really do work to help others students learn about all the different type of culture we have here on campus.

Kristen Hayhow, Senior

My parents and family are proud of me for attending WSU. My dad is especially proud of me because he is a WSU alumni!

Addison Huizenga, Sophomore

My career goal is to be Addison Huizenga RN BSN. I want to work in a Level 1 Trauma Center. Wright State is preparing me for this through constantly pushing me a little further each day. I always feel like I have constant support from friends and faculty members telling me I can do it. That is a really good feeling.

Shaela Lewis, Senior

It was close but not too close from where I live. The campus is nice and not too big and the dorms are a great size.

Donovan Marshall, Senior

There are students from all walks of life that attend Wright State, but I believe that everyone here is treated equally. So many bonds have been formed because people get to learn about how others grew up and live their lives.

Mathew McKelvey, Senior

For me, Wright State was a great fit: It offered me the opportunities of a larger university, while allowing me the support and one on one attention of smaller schools. Financial affordability also played a large factor in my decision.

Stephanie Patino-Garfias, Sophomore

My parents are more than happy that I attend Wright State University. They feel included which is a feeling they don't usually receive from institutions that I have attended, all thanks to the bilingual faculty members and friends. Also, the great opportunities that Wright State has offered me, make my parents happy and positive that I made the right choice.

Joe Peoples, Junior

At first, price. I am paying for college on my own so Wright State was a financially responsible decision. I can definitely say without a doubt at this point I am extremely happy with my decision of Wright State because this college has motivated me and presented opportunities to me I would have never thought possible as a senior in high school.

Justin Thrush, Senior

I really enjoyed the big-college population with a small-college feel. While there are about 17,000 students at WSU, I can still get to know my professors and do not feel overwhelmed by the class sizes.

Alina Vazquez, Junior

I chose Wright State because it was close to home and affordable, both things that my parents like as well. Not to mention everyone that has attended Wright State has only the nicest things to say about it!
