My Undergraduate Diploma does not state that I studied InteBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
My Undergraduate Diploma does not state that I studied International Business. My transcripts state that I studied international business, but in a ver small, and difficult to spot place. My Diploma says: "B.S.B in Business". Which does not capture my focus area, in which I want prospective employers to clearly see and understand.

VERY HONEST REVIEW!Quite BrightPsychology
1) Campus:

WSU can either be clean or horribly dirty and gross. The school gets cleaned Monday-Thursday, but still seems to appear consistently horrible. If you're into a great looking campus, WSU is not it. However, the school has a great tunnel system making it easy to get to class during the rain/snow (tunnels don't go to dorms). In addition, every building can easily be reached in less than 10min.

2) Dorms
there are different school owned apartments, which I have not experienced living in. Also there are dorms. If you're looking for a suite style room, then WSU will not be the place for you. The dorms are basic. I didn't feel safe with the frequent fights on my floor and outside. The people on my floor were loud and the RA and Community Directer don't help. My advice, get a single and lock your doors. I lived in a double, and when my first roommate dropped out, another girl was put into my room for fighting in her old room. SUCKS

3) Classes
Register early and learn about your professor and curriculum. There are a lot of lecture halls, which cuts to about a fourth in size after the second week. The classes are easy, but with any school you will need to stay on top of your work. If you skip out, you'll probably get a C.

4) Social life
I live in PA, so it is difficult for me to travel home on a regular basis... Unfortunately, majority of students living on campus leave as early as Thursday. On campus dining ends early on the weekends, so you'll probably end up ordering Donatos pizza. So yea... RCA will host fun events every once in a while, but besides that the weekends suck.

5) People
A lot of diversity at WSU. And a lot of smokers. There are a lot of people trying to start drama, but there are plenty who are about optimism and success. Most people living on campus come from Cincinnati or Columbus. OVERALL I was not pleased, so I am transferring.

Wright State is what you put in academically,Quite BrightPolitical Science
Wright State is what you put in academically, which is a great deal for the price. Most professors are friendly, approachable and willing to help you with your studies. The classes might be "dumbed down", but don't let that fool you, it's what you put in. Students are very diverse and you'll probably meet a lot of people from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and beliefs. The social life is really fun (if you know who to hang with), but it's also mixed. Like any place, there's rude, condescending and very tempting people. You need to know where you stand! I transferred mostly because I didn't feel challenged, (I came from a top performing HS),but I've known people who've graduated and hold very successful careers, which really worked for them.
