Hundreds of future Wright State University students packed into the Student Union for Signing Day on May 2.
Students were greeted with music from the Wright State Jazz Ensemble, smiles, snacks, and souvenir photos. Students also signed and received certificates making them official Raiders.
“We are excited to welcome all of our future Raiders to campus,” said Jen McCamis, director of undergraduate admissions. “It’s a great opportunity for students to sign the letter to just feel empowered to make that decision.”
Signing Day gave future students an opportunity to build relationships with faculty and staff and make connections.
Incoming student Afriyie Amoako, who is a senior at Gahanna Lincoln High School, attended the Wright State Business Scholarship Challenge in January.
“College is a big thing so when you have a bunch of people who don’t even know you and so open to helping you, it helps,” said Amoako.
Amoako’s father, Kyei, said his daughter plans to major in marketing and she picked a great college.
“I couldn’t have asked for anything better for her to be at Wright State,” said Amoako.
