"I enjoyed my overall experience at Wright State. The campus is of moderate size, has a great library system, and has an ever growing diverse student population. I found that the number of students per class within ones major was usually small to average size which provided adequate space for critical dialogue and analysis. I had very good instructors, both on the general education level and degree seeking level. Many of them were professionals outside of academia and several had written their own books and materials or were published authors. Wright State continues to build on its infrastructure base and is known for its many outstanding departments: Theater, Medicine, and Engineering just to name a few. I found the course work to be both challenging and rewarding. Wright State has an never ending amount of resources that can help students in navigating their classes and the sometimes hectic life of being a college student. The campus is located near shopping, eateries,and entertainment. The EJ Nutter Center and the surrounding nature reserve area make Wright State a must see campus for any aspiring student."

"A horrendous program, transferring out after wasting 2 years of my life with egocentric professors and unprofessional administration. I would not recommend this school, and specific program, to my worst enemy. All the professors care about is publishing their own work and advancing their career, there is no focus on the students like there should be in a doctoral program."

"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."

"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."
