(12-25-17) A whio.com story features a quote from university president Cheryl Schrader:

“The Lake Campus is a gem. I want people to see that there’s more to Wright State than what they already know.”

Lake Campus Dean Jay Albayyari says the campus operates on its own budget and is funded through its own revenue streams, separate from the main campus.

“This is no longer the campus where people pick up two classes and leave or transfer. We offer programs that people want to come here and take from start to finish.”

  • Fall enrollment at the Lake Campus was up by more than 6 percent 1,426
  • looking to  grow to 2,500
  • highest enrollment growth of any four-year institution in the state
  • 16 associate’s degrees
  • 18 bachelor’s degrees
  • one master’s degree program
  • three student housing complexes
  • a new agriculture and water quality center
  • a new library (is being planned)

Schrader talks about the connections the lake campus has with area business needs:

“These types of innovations are serving the lake campus.I think the Dayton campus could learn from them.”

The Lake Campus will have a new educational neighbor just across the road as the Tri Star Career Compact has started a new one-site facility that will consolidate its programs in one location.
