Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

I really like the location. Fairborn is a nice city. The campus is nice, but the recent amount of construction hides this very much so. The ME program is nice, but some teachers really drop the ball. Others have completely changed my ways of thinking for the better. But you will get both.

Since I will be new to Wright State this fall, I don't feel qalified to "rate" everything about the school. Judging by what I have experienced so far, Wright State will be a great place to continue my education.
