One of the best choices I made is coming here. Wright State University had even helped me with my college credit plus classes when I had trouble! Since studying at Wright State, I have met a variety of students and teachers that I wish to imitate in my future.
My experience with Wright State since the 2020-2021 school year has been extremely disappointing. I spent 99% of my time at home on my computer whilst paying tuition partly to keep the building running that I can't even use. At-home learning for the entire first year of college also meant that I had very little chances to build friendships and experience the "fun" that comes with being in college.
Don't come to Wright State if you expect to find a community of ethical, positive, friendly people. The college instead has a culture of drinking and partying. The few times I was able to experience WSU in person, I quickly learned that the community at this college is one of its biggest downsides.
Many of the professors are strictly there for a paycheck and aren't available outside of their scheduled hours. Many are more worried about their students cheating than they are about teaching them well. About half of the professors are too hard to understand because of their thick accents, which creates an additional barrier to learning- especially online. I am often left believing that these professors care minimally about their job.
Next, for a college that acts as if it cares about diversity, there is very little of it. Politically, nearly everyone on campus shares the same political views. The alternate is often not tolerated. The school is almost 75% white. International students make up about 1% of the students at this school, and you will rarely find a student from a different state.
As a person with minority political views, an extroverted personality, and a halfway decent sense of morals, I actively encourage friends and family to avoid Wright State at all costs. It may be the cheapest option (which has kept me going there) but with that comes the cheapest professors, an awful community, and a negative impact on the students that attend.
I feel that Wright State is a very good college but my experience in the nursing program made me feel otherwise. I was a nursing student this past semester and I changed my major. I had sat on this decision for a while, but what finally made my decision was that the advisors in the nursing program are not helpful. I feel the campus itself is good and many other programs are much more welcoming and helpful, but the nursing program is not very good and the staff is not very helpful.
I am fairly happy with my decision to attend Wright State University. The education program is exceptional, as pre-service teachers are given opportunities to work in the field beginning their freshman year. I often feel comfortable and safe while on campus. However, I disapprove of Wright State's money management.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Wright State University-Main Campus is 95%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
When choosing a college, parents and students should look at a variety of different campuses. I wish I had looked more into the colleges I had applied to and even applied to more colleges than I had. The right college isn't always about if your friends will be there or not. It's important to pick the one that is right for YOU and also your major. It is also important to pick a college with in a safe and nice area. This is where you will be staying for several years, so you better enjoy the place you're living at.
To make the most of your college experience you need to be outgoing. Don't be afraid to get involved with different school activites. It is also important to learn your views on different moral issues because every college student is faced with hard decisions. Also, don't forget to study hard and not party all the time. It's easy to take college for granted if you don't take it seriously.
The best thing about Wright State is it's small campus. It is hard to get lost and I see a lot of people I know from my classes. The people and the campus are like a little community.
It's a good place to get your degree and get out.
I honestly can't think of anything that I can fault WSU for; I absolutely love my school and the faculty and staff!
My classmates are very diverse, different backgrounds, different cultures.
laid back person
I believe that the availability of resources makes my school very unique. As well as the commitment to serve the community and advancements in educational programs. We have some excellent resources and facilities for Business, Art and Science majors. Even if you do not major in those areas it is enevitable you will take a class that utilizes the resources and facilities.
Someone looking for a school in a big city should not attend Wright State. The surrounding area is calm.
That I've managed to stay there for two years without transferring.

One of the things that I wish i had known before I came to this school was the classes they offer in different quarters. For an example, if i want to take a food biology class, i have to wait till spring quarter to register. I wish i knew that what classes were availiable in winter, spring, and fall.
The advising is terrible. My advisor does not know the answers to any of my questions and I just end up getting the run around.
There are stereotypes at my school. There are the athletic jocks, the theater kids, the science geeks, the work -out buffs, and many more. These stereotypes are not accurate because when you think about it, we're all so similar. We are students, working towards a goal, and hoping to succeed.
I enjoy Wright State because it's not too big, but also not too small. I use the tunnels almost everyday which is very convenient for me. When I tell people I go to Wright State they say, "You mean WRONG State!" I just laugh at them and say, "No, it just Wright for me!" There's a lot of people with school pride here. You'd think students here would where more OSU attire to classes but they do not. So far I don't have a memorable moment at Wright State but I know I soon will.
My favorite class, as of now ,would be Anatomy & Physiology. My major is Athletic Training major so this class is of very interest to me. Professors know my name in each class. Students are very competitive (mainly in small classes). I believe the academic requirements are attainable if students work hard non-stop to achieve success. I would say the education at this school is geared more toward learning, and then eventually getting a job falls right into place.
