I enjoy the school, it is a good junior college. The professors are excellent.

Sydney - 04/18/2019

Unfortunately, it has a political view of if you don’t agree with Chicago, you do not belong.. There are classes for an array of students and they are always full. Tuition is great and it encourages you to go full time. Some professors are very one sided in opinion and do not encourage opposition.

Jessica - 10/05/2018

As a college, Wright is the right place to be for many. While it isn't my first choice, it is a good choice. Going to college is crucial for many people to move up in life and Wright college is a very affordable choice for those looking to seek their degree.

  9. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    The school I am currently attending is a community college. I never imagined that going somewhere other than a well-known university or ivy league school would bring me any satisfaction. However, Wright College has a small amount of students per class room which results in more personalized instruction from the professors. It also has a comfortable atmosphere and the campus is lovely. I was denied financial aid so I chose to go somewhere I could afford and not have too travel too far from home. Wright College has become my home away from home.
