Why Wright State:

The biggest factor in my decision was the size of campus. I didn’t feel that it was too small and it wasn’t too big. I also chose Wright State because of the area that surrounded campus. With everything to do on and off campus there was no reason to be bored in the area.

The Faculty:

My English professors have always been a huge help with the writing of papers for class. They are happy to help if you need a paper proof read or if you are just looking to add to your paper they are always willing to help.


In the Classroom:

My favorite class has been my psychology 105 class with Professor Gordon. Gordon likes to keep the class fun by using many examples and even uses clips from many movies to show how and why people act why they do.

A few of my favorite things:

May Daze has been my favorite experience on campus. May Daze is a huge event outside the student union where vendors hand out free stuff like t-shirts, food, and there are games to be active with as well.

My favorite part about fall quarter is when everyone comes back to campus. You don’t get to see all of your friends when they go home for the summer. My favorite part about winter quarter is when we get enough snow that campus closes early. My favorite part about spring quarter is the weather when you can get outside to study and hang out with friends in the quad.
