Welcome, Class of 2017!
Here's the deal: we're not going to waste your time.
We don't want to overwhelm you with never-ending to-do lists so we've created a simple checklist that you need to accomplish before starting classes. Use the list at the right to explore the checklist and prepare to bound for success at Wright State University.
Be sure to check back as we continue to make updates in order to make your transition to Wright State seamless and fun.
Good luck, have fun, and we can't wait to see you on campus.

Common Text Program
The Common Text Program is an essential piece of your First Year Experience at Wright State. Discussed during your first year as part of your Learning Community and other courses, the Common Text will allow you to gain a better understanding of what it means to read actively and critically, make judgments about the validity of what you read, and discuss challenging, sometimes conflicting, ideas.
2013 Common Text Selection:
The Other Wes Moore
One Name, Two Fates
By Wes Moore
Two kids with the same name, living in the same city. One grew up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader. The other is serving a life sentence in prison for felony murder. Here is the story of two boys and the journey of a generation.
Students will receive a copy of the Common Text at Orientation
