The Wright State Veteran & Military Alumni Society serves the veteran and military-connected students and graduates of Wright State University through professional networking, personal mentoring, alumni engagement, community service, and more.
No membership dues here! Regardless of Wright State or military affiliation, we have a membership type for you.
With three standing committees, we are building the teams and resources that will support our future success.
Whether it's your time, network, experience, or resources, your support makes a difference!
We are constantly working to improve our offerings and expand upon our community building. We've put together a list of local resources that veterans and military-connected individuals may find helpful.
