The annual chili cook-off, golf cart parade, bonfire, trivia, casino night, alumni awards, social media vending machines and even soccer, baseball, club football and bowling were some of the highlights of Wright State University’s Homecoming Week Oct. 1-6.
“Homecoming Week is the perfect time to reconnect and rediscover Wright State as we celebrate generations of Raiders,” said Greg Scharer, executive director of alumni relations. “There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a current student, alumni, friend or family member.”
“Inside my head I still think I’m 19,” said Brian Garry, a 1969 graduate who returned to Wright State to celebrate Homecoming. “It’s something that everyone should do. Go back, get that energy back.”
The free Homecoming Festival on Oct. 6 in the Rinzler Student Sports Complex area anchored Homecoming Weekend with live music from My Girl Friday, a chili cook-off, a DJ, refreshments, games and more. Attendees cheered on the men’s soccer team immediately following the festival.
