Wright State University-Main Campus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (7)
Wright State University is a unique institution in Dayton, Ohio that gave me the tools to change the world. My major, Social Science Education, was a unique interdisciplinary program that touched on nearly every facet of the liberal arts. I was encouraged throughout my entire journey to participate in leadership roles and I eventually became the Student Body President of the institution. After receiving my degree I was admitted the the Harvard Graduate School of Education to pursue a M.Ed in Higher Education. This was only possible because of the incredible faculty, curriculum, and extracurricular opportunities at Wright State University.
Wright State campus life was excellent and getting to classes were very manageable. The teachers were very diverse and felt that they represented the students equally. Few teachers were not able to help students outside of class hours but overall, most could. Living on campus was easier to attend school because parking is an issue even if you have a parking pass. I collected almost more parking tickets than classes completed for my major. Wright State made it possible for me to graduate early because they offered multiple classes over summer and winter break. Few colleges could offer the variety over school breaks. Most important lesson I learned, was keeping track of my DARS report to ensure I was completing the correct classes because the counselor was not always there to help when needed. This includes participating in internships because I was not job ready and it took over two years to be employed in my field I gained a degree in. Since I was from out of state, I should have taken on more networking skills and opportunities. I would say overall my experience with Wright State is positive and it fit my schedule perfect because I was also employed when I attended college. Offering online classes along with campus classes made it easier to adapt and accomplish my goals. Last I was fortunate to be able to have many well rounded electives to take for my Psychology degree. I dont like to limit myself and like to learn and explore different fields of psychology and I was able to do so at Wright State University.
Wright State University is a great place for people of all ages to get their degree. It is truly a place where each student feels comfortable and at home. Like most schools there are a lot of negatives about attending Wright State. For example, if you are looking for a place to really meet people, gain a social life, and feel that school spirit, then WSU is not the place for you. Wright State is more for commuter students who are looking to save some money, while earning a quality degree. I will say that every professor I had at Wright State was really helpful, and truly wanted each student to succeed. On the other hand, academic advisors are awful. I had 3 different advisors in my time at Wright State and each advisor was not very helpful. All in all, I really enjoyed my time at WSU because I wanted a place where I was comfortable at, and could receive a quality education. I received my Bachelor's Degree from WSU this spring, and was ecstatic to find out they are offering me a scholarship to attend their online MBA program.
I enjoyed my time at Wright State University. I thoroughly enjoyed the social work program and would recommend it to others interested in the social work curriculum. I felt completely safe on campus and enjoyed the after class activities. The social work program has built up even more now especially with the MSW program. Totally recommend.
Wright State's Psychology Undergraduate Psychology program may be underrated. They are known for their Graduate program but the undergraduate psychology students are also taught by the same Graduate professors. This interaction between (Bachelors/Masters) instructors has prepared me well for Graduate school because that was the intent of most classes on the syllabus.
Mostly liked it. I enjoyed the college itself, easy to get around and had good food. Some of my teachers were not well liked.
College helps you become a much more rounded person and allows you to experience diversity. I will never regret going, however trade schools also allow you a well paid career without the debt. While I don't directly use the skills from classes of my major, my ability to reason, gather information and conduct research as a result of college, helps me tremendously.
