Celebrating Our Transfer Students During National Transfer Student Week

Transfer students are a valuable part of the Raider and Laker communities. To celebrate our transfer students and the faculty and staff who help them feel welcome, Wright State will host several events during National Transfer Student Week, October 17–21, 2022. These events will bring awareness to the contributions of our transfer community and engage the entire campus about the transfer experience. 

National Transfer Student Week is celebrated each year during the third week of October. Colleges and universities across the country join in to celebrate their transfer students.
