Start your college career on the right foot by attending these memorable and informative sessions essential to your college success. Before First Friday, August 25, all students should download the CORQ app. CORQ is powered by Engage, Wright State's student engagement platform, and is where you can find your comprehensive First Weekend schedule.
All incoming students should attend First Weekend, especially First Friday, August 25. First Weekend is a crucial component in your transition to Wright State, and it is full of useful activities, events, and information sessions to help you acclimate to campus. Please plan work and other activities to not conflict with your ability to attend First Weekend.
Residents will meet with their Resident Assistants (RAs) at 9 a.m. on First Friday, August 25 for the First Weekend Kickoff. Remember to bring your cinch sack, your official First Weekend T-shirt, and your nametag that you received when you moved in. Check-in will be located at the Turning Points (a.k.a. BART) sculpture near University Hall for attendance purposes.
