I transferred from Harold Washington and Wright is so much better! Everyone is very helpful and nice, and the professors are very smart and passionate. People are more friendly and though there's not a lot to do outside of the campus, people are always hanging out. The campus is nice and it feels like a four year college, which I like. I also feel that the students really want to succeed and it shows. However, do NOT buy the campus food. It is really expensive and not good.

It was an okay experience. It feels a step higher than high school, but I am certainly more challenged here than I was before. There are almost always school activities going on and constant emails about how you can join communities, internships, and jobs. There's public access to computers, as well as specialized ones for those who are disabled. Students vary from those just out of high school and adults well in their 40s or more. There's a large amount of diversity and great teachers who are willing to work with their students.
I’m attending Wright in fall 2019, so far mt experience is great. Love how people greet you right when you walk in, and how the building is labeled depending on the names!
