Future Wright State students were greeted with smiles, handshakes, back pats and congratulatory fist bumps. There were free T-shirts, snacks, music, balloons and souvenir photos. And the students walked away with gold-stickered certificates making them official Raiders.
Hundreds of incoming students crowded into the Student Union on May 1 for Wright State’s third Signing Day.
The Student Union Apollo Room teemed with new students, many of them taking selfies to record the milestone in their lives and share on social media. Colleges, clubs and departments staffed information tables. College deans floated around the room, interacting with students and parents.
“We are excited to welcome all of our future Raiders to campus,” said Jen McCamis, director of undergraduate admissions. “We have a bunch of students talk about when they get on campus how comfortable it is.”
Incoming student Autumn Sturdevant plans to major in marketing.
“It’s just a really good feeling to be here,” she said.
