What will I learn from First Weekend?


At Wright State, we are committed to creating and sustaining a welcoming campus. First Weekend is an opportunity for you to identify your support system, meet new friends, and find your place. We want you to call Wright State home.

Academic Support and Transition

We get it—college can be challenging. We are here to support you on your transition to being a Raider. Discover academic support, co-curricular, and wellbeing resources available to you.

Involvement and Leadership

Get involved and explore what it means to be a Raider. No matter your status, there is always something to do at Wright State. Find a club or organization, student activities, and many other engagement opportunities.

Tradition and Pride

A common purpose binds Raiders together; like a wolf pack, no Raider walks alone. Celebrate what it means to be a Wright State Raider, wear your green and gold with pride, and reach for the sky.
