Student Involvement and Leadership

First Weekend

Wright State University First Weekend – August 20–22, 2021

You have officially joined the Wright State family. We are proud to welcome you home, Raider. 

Congratulations! You did it: you’re officially a Wright State Raider. It is no secret that the past year has tested us all, and we are so excited you will be joining us at Wright State University. Community is much more than a theme for this year’s First Weekend. Together, we can do great things. First Weekend is a three-day event designed to acclimate first-year and transfer students, both residential and commuter, to campus. Throughout the weekend, our goal is to instill a feeling of belonging and community by building relationships with other students, staff, and faculty. Packed full of events and information sessions, First Weekend is an experience like no other.

First Weekend is also the time to complete any final preparations before the beginning of the Fall Semester, such as visiting the University BookstoreRaiderConnect for billing, or exploring classrooms and laboratories.
