Community connections

The third annual Laker Lawn Party highlighted the beginning of Fall Semester at Wright State University’s Lake Campus.

The Sept. 1 event was an opportunity to promote campus and community involvement, including full, or part-time employment and volunteering, social, networking and business opportunities to Lake Campus students.

The free two-hour event took place on the front lawn near Andrews Hall. The party also included some fun activities like, cornhole, inflatables, giveaways and refreshments.

“Last year due to COVID, we weren’t able to host this,” said Tiffany Hamilton, community director at Lake Campus. “It’s really good to see students out talking to each other and getting involved in organizations again.”

The event attracted over a dozen Lake Campus organizations and several area businesses that recruited student employees.

“A lot of companies in the area are hiring right now so it works out that they’ve an event like this to attract young workers,” said Ashley Dues, a freshman majoring in business and administration.
