    This institution is definitely the most affordable in the local area. It made so much sense to me to complete my first two years at this institution because of the very reasonable tuition rates. As well as the tuition being affordable already, there is also very much financial aid available for selecting a community college for one's education. I myself was lucky enough to receive two scholarships that covered my attendance completely including The Star Scholarship as well as a last dollar scholarship called One Million Degrees. All in all I didn't pay a penny out of pocket!

    Its a good choice for those who are in a little financial trouble and its for those who aren't really serious when it comes to socializing, everyone mostly keeps to themselves.

    Wilbur Wright Community College is worth the money for students who want to save annual tuition for general education, or for students wanting to return to school. The school is overall affordable, yet provides a very professional environment for it's students.

    If you choose a good teacher Wright is absolutely worth it. If you are in a high-need financial aid bracket as I am, you should be able to attend Wright for fear. It's a relief. However, if you are looking for a true college experience, Wright may not be the best place for you. If you are planning to focus on your studies and aren't deterred by limited socialization (if you don't know people), then go for it!
