    WSU is very cheap compared to many similar schools, but offers a degree that is equally competitive and useful. Why pay $50k a year to go to OSU, etc, when you can likely get the same degree at WSU for much less, in other words.

    For the price, Wright State offers at least as much as colleges that are about $40,000 per year, if not more, for half the price. Many professors look out for your best interest. The Communication and Telecommunication Services also is highly developed so anything you have issues with in terms of your campus accounts or your own technology can be taken care of with good service.

    Wright State University makes up for its lower tuition (in comparison to other colleges) for its high prices for food. The College Bookstore is also extremely expensive.

    Wright's tuition is reasonable and you get a quality education and college experience that I could not have afforded at some other local colleges. The various support systems that are avaliable to the students helps tremendously to assist the students in reaching your goals.
