Welcome to your first year!

New Student Orientation

Orientation is a required, one-day event for recent high school graduates that will help students get acquainted with Wright State. During Orientation, you will meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, receive a Wright1 Card, learn about your academic major, and more. For more information about Orientation, please visit www.wright.edu/orientation. Admitted students will begin receiving Orientation kits in the mail starting mid-February. The Orientation kit will provide information on registering for a summer orientation session.

Learning Communities

First-year students have the opportunity to take a set of classes with a group of peers called Learning Communities. Learning Communities link required general education courses with a first-year seminar. The seminar will answer questions about college and academics, help with study tips, and direct students to other university resources. photo of students studying outside of Honors building

Learning Communities are linked by a common interest like your major or your residence hall. Or maybe you have an area where you want to brush up on some skills, like the writing-to-succeed Learning Community, or you may want to learn how to get involved in campus organizations. No matter what your interest, you are sure to find a great match and get a chance to meet new people who have similar interests.
