It’s Homecoming week on Wright State’s Dayton Campus

The annual chili cookoff, two men’s basketball games, the Alumni Achievement Awards and a Homecoming Dance highlight Wright State University’s packed Homecoming week, which is ongoing on the Dayton Campus through Jan. 28.

“Homecoming is a time for current and former students to connect with each other and the university’s faculty and staff and celebrate the Raider spirit that connects us all,” said Greg Scharer, executive director of alumni relations.

This year marks a significant change for Homecoming week at Wright State. Rather than hosting events based around the club football and soccer seasons in the fall, Homecoming week is now taking place in spring semester to spotlight the Wright State basketball teams while also allowing more student organizations to participate in activities.

Homecoming is presented by the Wright State Alumni Association, Wright State University and Wright State student organizations.
