  • Meet students who will be able to tell you all about their personal experience and give you first-hand knowledge of what it is like to be a student 
  • Explore student support services and academic life 
  • Gain a better understanding of your personal, academic, and financial responsibilities while attending college 
  • Begin to foster your own Wright State spirit and pride
