Home sweet home

Over 200 Wright State University staff, faculty and student volunteers welcomed new and returning residential students to the Dayton Campus during Operation Move-In on Aug. 23–24.

“I’m excited about meeting all of the new people,” said Noah Mansfield, a first-year student majoring in finance.

More students plan to live in residential housing this year, with over 2,000 students moving into campus apartments and residence halls, said Jennifer Attenweiler, director of Residence Life and Housing.

New and returning students moved their belongings into residential housing on Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 23 and 24. Apartment residents will move in on Saturday, Aug. 26.

On Friday, Aug. 25, Wright State also kicks off First Weekend activities, which are designed to acclimate first-year and transfer students to campus and get acquainted with each other before the Fall Semester begins on Monday, Aug. 28.

First Weekend activities include the Party at Barty, Student Organization Expo, Movie Night, Mud Volleyball, Student Union After Dark and much more. A complete list of First Weekend activities is available at wright.edu/firstweekend.

“We are excited to have students here, and we’re excited for a great year, and this is kind of the kickoff for that,” said Attenweiler.
