As the fall semester begins Wright State University has taken steps to make it easier for students, faculty and staff to drive on and off campus.
Students, faculty and staff have seen a noticeable presence of attendants directing traffic during the first several days of the fall semester. Numerous parking attendants and Wright State police officers have been present in parking lots to improve the flow of traffic and help drivers locate parking lots that have available parking spaces.
“We want the first two weeks to be as easy flowing and as painless as possible for everybody coming onto campus,” said Joe Dick, transportation services manager at Wright State.
If possible, community members are advised to avoid traveling to campus — for non-class purposes — during the first two weeks of the semester at peak traffic hours, weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Students, faculty and staff driving to campus are asked to give themselves plenty of time to park and arrive at their classes or appointments.
Originally founded as a branch campus of The Ohio State University and Miami University, Wright State became an independent institution in 1967. It celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017, culminating with a special Homecoming celebration Sept. 29 through Oct. 1.
