Wright State University Reviews
My Wright State experience has been great! I’m only a freshman so I haven’t been here too long, but my overall time here has been awesome. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. I’ve made so many friends and I don’t feel excluded. Also, there are lots of campus activities so I’m never really bored! The classroom sizes are good and I feel like each teacher will give you the needed attention. It’s a fun environment to learn in and Id recommend it to all!
The students on the floor are very rude! I would try and make myself notice to my neighbors and they would ignore me as I greet them. There would be times where an RA would knock on my door to write me up for being to loud for quiet hours. As they wrote me up they would say they had multiple complaints about my guest and I being loud. I then questioned well if there is a no warning policy, why couldn't one of my neighbors come and ask me to quiet down before they told the RA. They told me that the people on my floor are intimidated by my roommate. The reason being is because of the color of our skin. I have told multiple people at Wright State the problem but no actions have been taken.
Wright State is a small, friendly campus. There is a club or organization for everyone and mostly small class sizes. General education courses sometimes have larger class sizes, but for the most part classes are fairly small. The math department could use some work, but everything else I've experienced has been great!
