Wright State University’s 50th anniversary Homecoming Week got off to an exciting start with a golf cart parade, bonfire and student-led festival.
A special gift giveaway — featuring a social media-driven vending machine — was a smashing success. After waiting in long lines, students posted a selfie to Twitter or Instagram in order to get a free Wright State T-shirt or hat.
Homecoming Week continues Friday, Sept 29, with numerous reunions, Casino Night, the College of Education and Human Services Trivia Night and the College of Science and Mathematics Pub Science talk.
The Homecoming Festival on Saturday, Sept. 30, will feature the annual Chili Cook-Off, a concert by former student and touring musician Clark Manson, the Black Alumni Reunion BBQ, and the women’s and men’s soccer games at Alumni Field. See the full weekend schedule.
Wright State became an independent institution in 1967 and spent the next 50 years growing into an innovative leader in affordable and accessible education. In 2017, it celebrates its 50th anniversary and sets the course for the next half century.
