While serving in the United States Navy and stationed in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Anthony Hinojosa attended Tidewater Community College. Anthony moved to Dayton, Ohio, and because of its affordability and program offerings, Wright State became his new college in Fall 2012. Anthony is majoring in International Studies and minoring in Political Science.
Besides working in the Veteran and Military Student Center, Anthony has been active in the Veterans League and Student Government. Wright State has impressed him, he says, “The administration actually make themselves available to students, and listen to what students say. Everyone is interested in making Wright State even better for veterans, and an even better place to go to school.” Thanks in large part to Anthony’s efforts, Wright State’s administration is in the process of building a Veteran and Military Center that will serve veterans and military-connected students to a far-greater degree than in the past.
Making things better is an activity that resonates with Hinojosa: he has lent his efforts to Wright State, and hopes to intern with the city of Fairborn, Ohio, as they plan and develop as a military community. And then, he’s off to graduate school for a master’s in International Studies.
Wright State is a good fit for Anthony, and he has paid it forward.
