Wright State started as a small school in 1967...
As Wright State has grown, so has it's influence in politics.
August 29th, 2008
First, John McCain chose Wright State as the place to announce Sarah Palin as his running mate in the 2008 Presidential Election.
That same election cycle, Barack Obama held a major rally at Wright State.
Vice President Joe Biden returned to the school during the 2012 election cycle to help secure Ohio for the democrats.
*DRUM ROLE PLEASE*
All of those moments helped lead up to...
Wright State hosting the first presidential debate of 2016!
The event will draw national attention to the university and provide students with a once in a lifetime opprotunity.
For someone like me, who is pretty fascinated by politics and the political process, that's pretty amazing and really exciting!
