why wright state

Close to home, beautiful campus, and awesome medical school!

Working with faculty

My math professor would meet with me one-on-one. She was extremely helpful and took her time to help me fully understand. This assisted greatly in my class success.

preparing for the future

My career goal is to become an anesthesiologist. Wright State is helping me prepare for medical school after I finish my undergrad program.

biggest fear 

My biggest fear was taking large classes and not knowing how to ask the professor questions. Classes do not feel too big and the professors are there for you to ask many questions during their office hours. And the Student Success Center has tutors or help for every class!

Wright State Experience in 5 words

Adventures, studies, friends, opportunities, and exciting!

a few of my favorite things

My favorite spot on campus is the lounge in the library by Starbucks. I can study and it has a social atmosphere.

My favorite class would have to be Chemistry, the labs are very hands-on. It's a challenge but one that is a good challenge!

April Craze is my favorite campus event. It is fun to walk around and talk to different organizations and see what I can join next year. And the extra bonus of all the free stuff you can easily win!
