Wright State University welcomed aspiring transfer students with a special admission event on Oct. 25.
Students from fellow southwestern Ohio colleges visited Wright State for an informative presentation, lunch and a campus tour. Students from Sinclair, Clark State, Edison and Central State had the opportunity to ask questions and meet with advisors to learn how their credits would transfer to Wright State.
The event was a part of a nationally coordinated week of events organized by The National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students. Wright State also collaborates with the West Region transfer compact, which is supported by the Ohio Department of Higher Education.
The institute organizes events for National Transfer Student week each year. The organization strives to “celebrate transfer students and the professionals who support them on their journey.”
Lucas Abromowitz, assistant director of the Office of Transfer, Transition and Orientation at Wright State, was happy with how the event turned out.
“The Transfer, Transition and Orientation Office was excited to bring to together the campus community this year for National Transfer Student Week and celebrate and highlight the contributions of our transfer students,” he said. “As a central hub for transfer students, it is a great feeling to see how much pride new transfer students have for being a Wright State student and a part of our community. It was also a great opportunity to work with our local community college partners and their student who chose to make Wright State their first choice in achieving in a bachelor’s degree.”
Wright State has a diverse transfer student community. Over 75% of the spring 2019 graduating class had some form of transfer credit in their degree. With over 1,500 transfer students coming into Wright State every year, students have numerous opportunities to succeed.
One of those students is Kristin Baughman, a 2018 mass communication graduate. Baughman transferred to Wright State from Sinclair because she wanted to make sure all of her hard work paid off.
“Transferring to Wright State from Sinclair was a lot easier than I thought it would be,” she said. “All of my credits transferred in with no hiccups, and I was able to start right away on finishing my degree. My advisor was very helpful in answering any questions I had and helping me get started my first semester at Wright State.”
Students can transfer to Wright State for the spring semester. The application deadline is Jan. 6, 2020.
