Welcome to the RaidR Network!
RaidRs stands for Raider Recruiters. The Raider Network members are alumni or sometimes parents who represent Wright State University for the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in a host of outreach activities.
Our goal is for dedicated alumni like you to:
- share their WSU experiences with students,
- serve as resources for students who want to learn about WSU,
- offer a personal perspective about WSU, and
- make a difference in the lives of others.
Our RaidR Network is everywhere, including many places that our faculty and staff cannot be. Through this network, we hope to use the presence and involvement of our alumni to reach schools, neighborhoods, and communities, and especially those underserved by traditional educational resources.
RaidR Network Opportunities:
- Volunteer with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions,
- Attend local and regional college fairs,
- Write prospective students
- Volunteer at Raider Open House
- Serving on panels for prospective students,
- Attending/hosting Senior Send-off, and more.
Write a prospective student
The Office of Alumni Relations, along with the Office of Admissions, has introduced a new project to assist in student recruitment. Postcard writing campaign to accepted, but not yet enrolled students to Wright State University. A message from an alumnus thanking the prospective student for their interest in Wright State, a short testimonial of the quality of a Wright State education as well as a congratulatory note can make a huge impact when a student is making their college decision. Contact the Office of Alumni Relations to become involved in this new program in 2013/2014. Sign up online by filling out our volunteer interest form.
Refer a Student to your Alma Mater
RaidR Recruiters are encouraged to recommend high school students to the Office of Admissions if they believe those students should receive WSU materials or would be excellent candidates for incoming WSU students.
The level of involvement in the RaidR Network is entirely up to you. You can help at a one event or at all of them -- whatever best fits your schedule. Also, closer one-on-one recruitment opportunities by writing letters and emails to current and future WSU students, making congratulatory calls to students who have been accepted and have chosen to attend, and reminders about registering for summer orientation and other important first year student events.
