Alumni & Staff
2004 I became a Raider working for The College of Science and Mathematics. Mother of three, working full-time and caring for elderly parents, I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology. This is not an uncommon scenario, however my supportive work environment made all the difference. Proof WSU values education.
Student & Staff
WSU’s championing of the LGBTQAI+ community has changed my life. Through Safe Space training and links to the Office of LGBTQAI Affairs, I discovered a label I now wear proudly: queer. I also have met the most inspiring and affirming people here, with incredible teachers and a strong, family-like community.
Alumni & Staff
Wright State to me means Opportunity: WSU has given so many people a chance to succeed when others didn't. It gave me an Opportunity to complete my master’s degree and obtain a full time staff position! It has afforded me opportunities to grow as a student, professional and person.
