Prospective students can connect with faculty and current students and explore potential majors during Wright State University’s online Spotlight series.
Spotlight is a series of live virtual events that offer high school students and transfer students a chance to learn more about Wright State and interact with faculty, staff and current students.
The free Spotlight events are open to both high school and transfer students at any stage of the application process.
Individual events are scheduled for Business, Nursing and Health, Science and Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science, Liberal Arts, and Education and Human Services.
“Through the Wright State Spotlight series, you have the opportunity to experience our campus and community in a live and interactive format wherever you are,” said Lucas Abromowitz, assistant director of transfer recruitment. “You will get a personal connection to Wright State faculty, staff, and current students, and learn more about being a Raider!”
The Wright State Spotlight began as a series of successful in-person events at Sinclair College connecting transfer students to Wright State faculty and advisors in the fall of 2019.
“We wanted to continue helping students and connecting them in the ways that they crave, so this was an opportunity to be innovative and deliver a virtual experience to students for the current situation,” Abromowitz said.
Prospective students can attend any Spotlight event based on their interests. Those who register for an event will receive a fee waiver code for their undergraduate admissions application.
