The Summer 2021 semester is from May 10-July 29 and student organizations are using this semester for minimal activities and fall preparations. 

Student Involvement and Leadership 

The Student Involvement and Leadership (SIL) office is dedicated to helping students find activities and events to enhance their college experience and prepare them for the responsibilities awaiting following graduation. SIL is involved in student organization services, campus programs, fraternity and sorority life, and leadership development programs. 

SIL currently does not have any scheduled events this summer. Associate Director, Debbie Lamp, indicated that when events are scheduled they will be located in the CORQ app and on the SIL website. 

“It’s quiet around here during the summer months,” Lamp said. 

Fitness Classes with Campus Recreation 

Wright State University Campus Recreation is offering several events this summer that provide students with group exercise opportunities. As Program Manager for Fitness and Wellness programs for the rec center, Kara Donbrock helps to coordinate these events for students.

Donbrock says that students are invited back to campus this summer to participate in yoga, cycling, Total Resistance Exercise (TRX), functional training, and pilates classes by signing up on IMLEAGUES. 

“Classes are free for students and currently free for staff and faculty,” Donbrock said. 

Here is the schedule for these events: 

University Activities Board

Typically holding several events a semester, the University Activities Board (UAB) exists to help bring students together through inclusive, fun activities on campus. They are active on Instagram and other social media platforms throughout the school year in order to raise awareness for campus activities and encourage students to get involved. 

However, new UAB President Jeffrey Shehee indicated that this summer will provide an adjustment period for new staff to get trained and for preparations to be made for fall semester events. As of now, the only appearances or events being made by UAB involve any orientations or open houses that may occur this summer. 

UAB is planning to bounce back this fall with some interesting, unique events to help reunite students as they return to campus. 

“The goal we have for this year is rebuilding the community. We will be reaching out to student organizations and departments, not only helping them promote their resources but ours as well,” Shehee said. 

Shehee encourages students to keep an eye on their social media for the events they are planning for the fall semester. Their Instagram handle is @wsuab.
