“The pride and joy we feel for our students is immeasurable. In the midst of a pandemic they have persevered and stayed focused on their academic and career goals, while still having to help their families and manage a host of challenges that are unprecedented.” says Susan Calabrese, Director of Wright’s Transfer Center. Immense gratitude to our faculty who challenge and teach our students brilliantly, the Advising & Transfer Center team who advise our students intentionally, and our support staff who serve our students exceptionally well.
