Wright State hosts hundreds of students during Raider Open House

Hundreds of potential, future undergraduate students and their families visited Wright State University’s summer Raider Open House July 22 and explored academic programs, student support services and the Dayton Campus.

Through a series of breakout sessions, faculty, staff and students provided information about Wright State’s 146 academic programs, five academic colleges and numerous departments.

“When students are choosing Wright State, they’re choosing an excellent, affordable education,” said Jen McCamis, director of undergraduate admissions. “One of our messages to these students and families is that when they choose to be a Raider, we will welcome them to the Wright State community and help them grow.”

Wright State admissions staff provided details on the application process, paying for college, applying for financial aid and scholarships and transferring credit.

“I’ve been walking around looking at different things and getting new interests,” said Joshua Koogler, a student at Western Kentucky University who attended the open house. “All of the staff and professors have been really helpful.”

Attendees also received details about the Wright Tuition Guarantee Program, which locks in the same annual cost of tuition, housing and dining over a four-year college career for newly admitted, degree-seeking undergraduate students who are Ohio residents.

Students learned about residential housing, dining and campus life, and spoke one-on-one with faculty, staff and students from Wright State’s academic and student service departments.
