Wright State University offers a wide variety of resources to help students; here are just a few resources students can access for spring semester. 

Student Success Centers

The Student Success Centers include academic advising and career services. Academic advising provides free tutoring services as well as math and writing centers. 

The math and writing centers take walk-ins, but the tutoring services are by appointment only. 

“We have walk-in study coaching now, come here and study with someone who has already taken the course before,” Emanuel Clayton, program director of the Math Learning Center, said.

Clayton further explained that the centers offer an academic resource page that tutoring services can add to student’s Pilot pages. Other services, including the Writing Center, provide other benefits as well. 

“Working here with us is really more of an efficient way of studying,” Jill Tussing, program director of the Writing Center, explained.

Both Tussing and Clayton emphasized how these services already come built into everyone’s tuition, so students should take advantage of them. 

“The mission of the Student Success Center is to serve as a center for learning assistance, which provides an academic support structure for students to develop key learning skills, enhance their confidence and increase their independence,” the WSU Success Center’s website states. 

Career services can help with student employment, resumes and mock interviews. The office also conducts multiple career fairs each semester. 

Office of Disability Services

The Office of Disability Services is located in 180 University Hall and serves Dayton campus.

 “Accessibility is an essential feature of the Wright State campus, and we strive to create an inclusive community for our students, faculty, staff and guests,” the WSU ODS website states.  

Students can reach the ODS at disability_services@wright.edu or 937-775-5680. The office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday.

Counseling and Wellness Services

Counseling and Wellness is located in 053 of the Student Union and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For WSU students, CWS provides group, family, and individual therapy, according to the CWS website. Students can visit the appointment portal to schedule an initial appointment at CWS. 

Students can use the 24-hour crisis line, RaiderCares, outside of office hours at 937-775-4567. In emergency cases, CWS advises students to call 911.

Culture and Identity Centers

The Culture and Identity Centers at WSU include the Asian and Native American Center, Bolinga Black Cultural Resources Center, Latino Center, LGBTQA+ Center and the Women’s Center.
