Complete your orientation preparation course.

One week before your on-campus orientation session, check your Wright State email for instructions on how to access your orientation preparation course. The virtual course can be completed on your own time in one hour or less. It will introduce you to essential Wright State information to better prepare you for your on-campus orientation. 


Attend your on-campus orientation session.

Your on-campus orientation session is a half-day program designed to provide you with the tools you need to be a successful Wright State student. During your session, you will take a deeper dive into your academic college by meeting faculty and students and exploring the spaces you will call home. You will also register for your fall semester courses if you haven't already done so, get your Wright1 Card student ID, and learn more about campus life and resources. Lunch will be provided.


Consult your Raider Resource modules.

After your on-campus orientation, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access your Raider Resource modules in Pilot. The modules will be available through November and are a valuable resource for new Wright State students. They serve as a great refresher on details discussed during orientation. The modules also provide information on additional programs and services available to you. 


Get connected during First Weekend 2022.

Join us August 19–21 and kick off Fall Semester with a variety of opportunities to explore and engage with the Wright State community. Meet other students, explore student life opportunities, experience the Raider life, and have fun. Additional information will be posted on as it becomes available.
