About Lake Campus
For students seeking an alternative to the Dayton campus, Wright State University’s Lake Campus, located on 173 scenic acres on the north shore of beautiful Grand Lake St. Marys between Celina and St. Marys, is an excellent option. Easily accessible to the residents of Allen, Auglaize, Darke, Mercer, Shelby and Van Wert counties, the Lake Campus enables students to maintain ties to local communities and families. Lake Campus enrollment is approximately 1,100 students.
The Lake Campus offers numerous associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degree programs, plus a variety of general education courses and pre-professional programs. The Lake Campus also participates in the Ohio Transfer Module, which simplifies transferring credits to other universities, and can be found at www.transfer.org.
Although the Lake Campus primarily is a commuter school, residence housing is now available. Knapke Villa, a townhouse-style apartment building with six units and the capacity to house approximately 30 students, opened in late 2011. Information, including amenities and applications, is available at www.wright.edu/lake/housing.
Many Lake Campus students take advantage of the opportunity to be involved in student activities beyond the classroom—both a great resume builder and a chance for new experiences and new friends.
In August 2009, Lake Campus completed a $9 million building project, adding state-of-the-art technology for in new science labs and James F. Dicke Hall, a multipurpose facility that will help enhance the quality of student and community life by providing recreation, meeting and study space. In addition, close to 95% of the entire existing buildings were renovated to offer a bright, open educational experience in the classrooms and support areas.
