First Weekend

We are proud to welcome you home, Raider. 

Forge your path
First Weekend 2022 

Friday, August 19–Sunday, August 21

As you venture on this new journey, you'll be welcomed with events and programs that will help you feel connected and engaged at Wright State. First Weekend is a time for you to discover your purpose, realize your potential, and define your destiny. First Weekend is a time for you to forge your path. The possibilities are endless for you, Raider.

Packed full of events, activities, and information sessions, First Weekend is an experience like no other. 

First Weekend Registration

Certain student populations must register for First Weekend since they are not required to have meal plans. A good rule of thumb: new-to-Wright State students who are not living in a residence hall should register for First Weekend, regardless if they plan to purchase any meals.

Residential students living in The Woods, Honors Community, or Hamilton Hall do not need to register for First Weekend. You will receive your materials when you move in.

The following undergraduate student populations must register for First Weekend:

  • First-year and transfer commuter students
  • Transfer students living in an on-campus apartment
