Wright State University

Wright State University is a public research university in Fairborn, Ohio just outside of Dayton. The school offers degrees at the associate, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels. The university has a branch campus on Grand Lake St. Marys with a Celina, Ohio, mailing address. As of 2012, the university had nearly 18,000 students.

Wright State was founded in 1964 as the Dayton branch campus of both Miami University and Ohio State University. At that time it comprised only a single building, Allyn Hall (named for Stanley Allyn, then-president of National Cash Register and one of the university's founders). Most of the land was donated by the United States Air Force, from excess acreage of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. A 1965 act of the Ohio General Assembly stipulated that the Dayton campus would become an autonomous four-year institution once it reached an enrollment of 5,000 students. Several names were considered, including Dayton State University, Southwest Ohio State University, Shawnee University, Four Rivers University (after the four nearby rivers: the Great Miami, the Mad, the Stillwater, and Wolf Creek), and Mad River University. Wright State University was eventually chosen to honor the Wright Brothers, who were residents of Dayton and invented the first successful aircraft in the city. On October 1, 1967, after enrollment passed the 5,000-student mark, Senate Bill 212 passed to actually create a new university. This led to the official charter of Wright State University.
