Wright State University is your typical commuter school with the additional "live on campus" feel. Honestly, there's nothing special. It's kind of just a school that gets the job done per say. Which is alright, but it isn't for me. The professors were not in touch with the students by any means. Which I am completely against. I think that professors should know the students and actually want to help them. This is why I am going to go to UCBA. It's a smaller community school and I've only heard incredible things about the staff there. Wright State might be right for others, but certainly not for me. I look forward to my new school life at UCBA in Fall of 2017!
Review Your College
Wright Stat is a fantastic University and coming from a smaller high school, the smaller class sizes are perfect for getting to know the professor and your classmates better to help give you a better overall college experience. Also, the campus is beautiful!
Wright State is an excellent school for students to begin and even continue their education. Wright State has many attributes that make it an excellent school for any type of student to attend. Many students who attend are commuters and non traditional. Wright State offers an abundant amount of resources for the diverse student body in order to optimize the success of every student, provide opportunities catered to each individual and provide a distinctive and culturally enriching space for all students to feel welcomed and recognized. Although Wright State was not my first choice, I can say with certainty that Wright State is the right path for me to begin my collegiate journey. I would recommend Wright State to anyone looking for a university with a devoted teaching staff, multifarious student body and an abundance of resources to ensure a smooth transition into college for every student.
