Three years ago, Wright State committed to hosting the 2013 Science Olympiad National Tournament. The effort involved meticulous planning, entailed thousands of man hours and took the entire campus.
Those involved included schools and colleges, Physical Plant and Grounds, Facilities Planning, the Sign Shop, Communications and Marketing, Parking Services, Residence Services, the Wright State Nutter Center, the Wright State Research Institute, Student Union, Event Services, Printing Services, Food Service and Catering, Purchasing, University Advancement and a host of local businesses.
Preparing each venue for accommodating the teams was a monumental task in itself. For example, the Expo at the Nutter Center alone featured 27 carefully crafted displays from the university’s schools and colleges.
“Planning the Science Olympiad National Tournament has truly been a university-wide effort,” said Wright State President David R. Hopkins.
