First Year Experience
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.
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.
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.
For more information about learning communities, please visit the University College Web site.
